Can Saphenous nerve cause pain in my right groin?
User rating for this question
I have an intermittent excruciating pain in my right groin. Physio says it is the (?)Stephenous nerve _ I know I've got that wrong! I am 83 years of age. Last Night I had trouble with the Foxtel on my television and was doubled up behind it for some time trying to pull out leads and then put them all back. I had just had dinner and probably not the best time to be bent over! Physio did put the pulsating sucker things on for a while (hurt) and then ultra sound..Sorry about the garble. but I would like to know the best treatment Thankyou - XXXXXXX XXXXXXX

You need proper clinical examination and investigations. You need to be examined by a surgeon. Pain may be due to many reasons like calculus,colicky pain etc. You need routine hemogram,RBS,LFT,RFT,Lipid profile,Urine RE/ME,Ultrasound of abdomen.Further investigation like CT Scan of abdomen can be done if needed.
