I have recently had a very deep tissue massage for an unrelated injury to my inner thigh muscles. that was about a week ago. I have no pain with I urinate but this has been going on for about 24-36 hours
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi Doctor
Doctor :   Was it is just regular massage ? Can you explain more?
Doctor :   Re you there?
User :   due to the injury I had, very close to my groin, and after many trips to both accupunture and chiro, they suggested I have a theripist massage the area. In one particular session, she had her fingers so deep in my leg that they felt like the were insider me. this was near the upper inside thigh, close to my groin area
