Have had numerous test including urology work up hysteroscopy, colonoscopy, pelvic mri, abdominal mri, hip xray and hip arthrogram mri of Lu bar spine and ilioinguinal nerve block. Nothing works.

Brief Answer:
Most probably neuropathic pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns.
I read carefully your past question-answer history too. Seems to me there have been excluded abdominal and pelvic major diseases that may cause your symptoms. From location of pain and its distribution, I think there is a neuropathic pain from entrapment nerve syndrome. Most probably there is a entrapment of Superior Cluneal Nerve, a nerve that supplies area you describe. Meralgia parenthetica should be considered too.
So I suggest you to consult a Neurosurgeon that deals with peripheral nerve conditions and discuss further steps to diagnose and treat your condition. Hope this answers your question. If you have additional questions or follow up questions then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your questions.
