Low Back and Groin pain?

Hi everyone, I hope you are having a pain free day! I am new to the forum and I have had Laminectomy L4-L5(1981), L5-S1(1992), staph infection removal(1992), and have bilateral forminal stenosis of L4-L5, L5-S1 with ostephoytes and autofusion of L5-S1. About 6 months ago, I started having severe back pain, leg pain, etc. I had MRI, showed stenosis. In January, I started having severe butt/groin pain while sitting. My leg symptoms got better, had NCS/EMG on lower legs last week and they show negative, Dr. said slow response times, but within range. I don't know where to go from here. I still have back pain, and groin/butt pain. Could this be caused by the stenosis? BTW, groin pain came on after PT stretching episode. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.



  • I know there are several posts on this forum about buttock and groin pain. Some people have found it is related to the SI joint and/or slight rotation of the pelvis. I found a web site that addresses this to some degree. It is lowbackpain.com. You might take a look and see if it is anything like the pain you have.
  • Sorry that web site is wrong - it is thelowback.com
  • I have severe stenosis in L4-5 and the first signs were severe groin pain and, buttock pain where I could not lift my legs to walk. The groin pain was like my innards were being tied in knots. I was given muscle relaxers to relax the muscles and that did the trick as long as I did not go up and down stairs or hike up a hill.

    Hope this helps you out.

    God Bless!

  • Yes, that up and down stairs thing really aggravated my hip pain, too. But even that is better since the acupuncture.
  • I am scheduled to see another neuroligist on Thursday for second consultation. The one that gave me EMG and NCS said there is nothing he can do for me. I may also go to see a neurosurgeon to see what they say. I also get the twisting pain, I had it so bad this am I thought I may have to go to ER. That website was great too! I may mention this to my primary Dr.


  • Maybe you ought to look into Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear - they're pain relief shoes that can help make a real dent in that back pain your suffering from. http://www.zcoils.com
  • I am constantly being 'kicked' in the right 'daddy button' after my June 08 surgery (L4/5 to S1 fusion w/hardware). It was intermitant prior to that. It originally wrapped around from the back to the right side into the front.
  • Aw, this was a very nice post. In concept I would like to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make a very good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account seem to get one thing done.
    i've found this on Google
