Hi

I have been experiencing pain for 1 year in my right groin, knee, lower back, calf and constant tingling of the foot and recently i am experiencing fever/sweats,the pain is constant everyday but bothers me most when i am trying to sleep at night. I have been to my GP twice and he said it was inflamation of the nerve and pescribed an anti-inflammatory which had very little effect. I am getting really worried that this is something serious and feel affraid to go back to the doctors incase it is something serious. I would be greatful to hear from anyone who has had similar symptoms or could give me some advise. :(

thanks

  • I've had similar symptoms, Don't avoid the doctor because you don't want to hear bad news! This could be any number of things, you should see a neurosurgeon for a consult. Low back pain and groin pain are symptoms that I had.I was diagnosed with Avascular necrosis. (Any search engine will find it ) Seeif it sounds like you. Good Luck!

  • I don't have the exact symptoms but the pain in the right groin and right side of back but in the mid to lower back with some sensation of numbness especially like you when I'm in bed all the pains come in. I had lots of exams, not from a nerve specialist yet, and everything is fine. I went to a chiropractor and he took x-rays and he says I have 1 or 2 protruded disks, and a part of my back is somehow twisted. He's been working for 3 months now but unfortunately for me it hasn't worked. I'm going to keep trying with the chiropractor a couple of more months and see if there is any improvement since he said it was going to take about a year, but still I'm not any better. Then I will try another chiropractor a couple of times and see if it works. Maybe you would like to see a chiropractor that is known in your area. I hope you find a solution

  • Sorry to hear about your problems. I too have many of your symptoms. I have had back surgery in the past (for a herniated disk) but am now experiencing more severe symptoms (tingling and numbness along with lower back pain) and am having another MRI done. You need an MRI, not an x-ray. Go to an orthopedic surgeon. Here is a good site (and a good place to start for you to do research - Google your symptoms and they all pretty much point to the same thing: back problems that require an orthopedic surgeon): http://www.island-life.net/backpain4.htm Please do not be afraid to go see an orthopedic surgeon. Your problems cannot be addressed by either a GP or a chiropractor. While they may be a good place to start, you need to end up with a specialist. Best wishes and good luck.

  • Ive suffered with severe groin and lower back pain for 18 years. Have had every test imaginable, with little success. Recently a nerve conduction test identified "femoral neuropathy"- unfortunately, as the problem has existed for so many years, there's little they can do now except use strong drugs which come with their own side effects. My advice: Find a way to make peace with your pain - the doctors don't care - soon as the most obvious issues are exhausted, they seem lost interest. Good Luck: you can find life with pain - not easy, but achievable.
