I have been having pain in my right leg where the leg meets the groin-in the "crease" of where your leg bends. It is a deeper type of pain. The doctor laid me down flat on my back, had me bend knee a little, and then he pushed my thigh down to the table. This really hurt. The pain comes and goes. Doctor did do xray and said he did not see any abnormailities and no arthritis. Anyone have any ideas?

  • Could be avasular necrosis. If you have had an injury to that side a few years ago, it is a possibility. The only true way to diagnosis this or rule it out is a Bone Scan. You need to see a Ortho doc. They may suspect many other avenues first, but it is worth checking out. Xrays and MRI's may not accurately show what the inside of the bone looks like. AN is a basically an accelarated arthritis that leads to bone relpacement. Look it up in Mayo Clinic or here. It may be bursitis, which is much easier to treat.....Hope the ideas lead you in a direction
