Hi All,

I'm 26 years old and for the past 2 years i've had extreme lower back pain. Over the past 6 weeks this has turned into extreme groin pain, alone with a continuous arch which goes down my leg to my knee (never goes past the knee) i also have abdomen pain that appears once the lower back pain has settled down.

I have been private and seen a gastroenterologist and had a large amount of blood tests taken, which came back fine. I have also seen a number of consultants at my hospital and had ultra sound on my bladder and kidneys with no results. I have also had a cystourethroscopy with no luck at finding the pain. I have had a number of x rays on my lumbar spine and for S.I.J with still no luck. I have had a number of blood tests with all results coming back as normal.

Its starting to driver me mad, no matter what i do no one seems to be able to locate the pain. Im also starting to freak out thinking if its left any longer it will end in a bad way.

Anyone know what else i can do? It doesnt help that im a bit of a hypochondriac and struggle to believe anyone who tells me im fine, or id be much worse if it was something more nasty. But i came help to constantly check my body over for anything out of the ordinary. I find it hard that i have all this pain and no answers. All i get given is very strong painkillers, antibiotics or anti inflammatory, but no answers.

Is this all in my head?
