For 4 years I have suffered from symptoms consistent with those described by those who suffer from Chronic Prostatitis and Pudendal Neuralgia. I have even been diagnosed with those disorders although not to the extent that I felt satisfied with pursuing medical procedures.
I was recently diagnosed with a Labral Hip Tear - the Orthopaedist who diagnosed me stated that most if not all of my symptoms could be attributed to a labral hip tear:
• burning in testes
• burning when I sit
• back of glute and genital pain
• SI Joint pain
• tip of penis pain
• spreading burning after long periods of sitting
I am very very concerned that there are many men and women who need to have this examined before pursing treatment for prostatitis or pudendal neuralgia.
If you are an active person who suddenly started having groin pain - instead of accepting the Chronic Prostatitis diagnosis - have your hip checked out - it could be a labral tear. Dr. Meyers in Phili.
