What Causes Severe Pain In The Groin Area And Leg?

default
Posted on Sat, 15 Oct 2016
Question: My right leg started to hurt up and down the back of the leg and the buttocks. It feels like a cramp in my right buttock. I have been still walking around with no problems. Then the last 2 days I am experiencing some very serious pain in the inner side of the leg at the crease very close to the side of the vagina. And now it is very painful when I start to walk and then somewhat subsides. When I lift the leg it hurts at the top of that leg in the groin area.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX

Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

How was your day?

Hope this message finds you in good health.

I have gone through your query in detail and understand your concern.

I generally see many cases like this at my clinic.I give them rest,analgesics,anti-inflammatory tablets and ice pack till the symptoms reduce to some extent. Then i get an xray and if necessary an mri done to find out the exact reason.
In your case,there are 3 possibilities-
POSSIBILITY 1. SOFT TISSUE INFLAMMATION- there may be no bony involvement,only the soft tissues around the region might be inflammed that may be causing the pain

POSSIBILITY 2. NEUROPATHY- there may be a partial or complete inflammation of the nerves in that region that may be the root cause of such kind of pain.

POSSIBILITY 3. DISC PROLAPSE-there may be a compressed a nerve in the spine somewhere that might be causing radiating pain in those regions.Possibility of a disc prolapse should be kept in mind.

I suggest you get an Xray as well as an MRI done to find out the exact cause.
Physiotherapy,analgesics,anti-inflammatory drugs should help till then.
Do get back to me after ur reports are ready.

You should eventually get back to normal in coming few days.Nothing to worry about.     

I hope your question has been answered.

Feel free to consult me anytime for follow-up queries.

Take care,God bless.
Wish you a healthy life : )
