  • Mmmmm, sounds very much like what I have. A few years ago I had bladder floor re-construction and the pain started about 1 year afterwards.Not all the time, but in great severity and esp.when walking,stretching or just plain moving.I was in tears and the pain was excruitiating It went for a few years only to return about 18 months ago when I noticed my bladder was ever so slightly prolapsing and needs a couple of stitches to hold it back up and the groin pain has come back w/ a vengeance! In agony sometimes where I can't walk till the pain goes.I do rub the groin with pure emu oil and that seems to quieten the pain a tad. It laughs at strong painkillers so rest is the only option.I'm guessing the pain is coming from the bladder pulling on the tendons/muscles that hold it in the pelvic region? I've had scans ,they show nothing !Of course, if you are a female,then maybe,just maybe you should see a doctor to check out if you have some sort of prolapse ?If male, I can't suggest anything:p sorry.Louise D

  • it sounds like a hernia. if you can feel the kinks under the skin. i once had something like this, my mother felt it and said it could be a hernia. it probably wasn't in my case because it went away. it hink you have to have a surgery for a hernia.

  • Consider getting a massage that focuses on releasing the Glutes in the butt and the places these muscles connect inside the front of the hip bone, of on the side of the hip. Also try stretching the quads while standing by folding 1 leg back and gently pulling the heel back to your butt with your hand, then gently press your pelvis forward to stretch the upper quads coming into your hip. If that is very tight try it lying on your side on the floor and use the other hand to press deeply but gently into the inside of the hip bone moving about 1/2 inch at a time all along that bone. Also there is a muscle starting in the middle of the hip at the side, crosses the pelvis in the front and joins to the inside of the knee. If massaging above the knee helps and also if pressing gently and deeply in little circles in about the center of your hip on the side hip helps, you likely have a tight muscle there. A massage or osteopath are the best to address these areas.

  • You should call up an acupuncturist in your area (or an Oriental Medicine/ Acupuncture School) and talk to a Doctor about this. There are many (points) that can be done to assist with prolapse of the uterus, bladder, rectum, etc. I understand fullythat this makes no sense in Western medicine, :confused: but in Chinese Medicine, the spleen is "in charge" of keeping the viscera or organs in place. In tandem with other "channels or vessels" i.e the Dai Mai Meridian, this is a resolvable problem in many cases. Do you have a healthy diet? The spleen is assigned the energy of pensiveness. So if you overworry, or study alot, STRESS, these things "weaken" the spleen (on an energetic level). Also ice irritates the spleen. It strengthens it to drink warm or room temp. drinks. I know this all sounds so foreign, but it is a very old, respected holistic (WHOLE istic) approach to health and wellness and is tried and true! The stomach/spleen represent the "earth" in the 5 Elements thus - grounding and anchoring. So from that aspect, there's a whole new possibility you may want to investigate. Good luck!`Namaste':)
