found this forum by searching on referred groin pain. I have been dealing with this for about 10 years on and off. No doctor has ever been able to (or cared to) find out the cause of it. I don't have insurance. I had a car accident 14 years ago and suffered a ruptured disc in my neck (c5-c6) and I've had lower back issues ever since the birth of my son in 1977. About 10 years ago I got my first groin pain. It just comes out of the blue and feels like an electric cattle prod. The pain will last anywhere between 1 and 30 seconds and then be gone. Then another one will come sometimes a minute later and sometimes 20 minutes later. Most of the time the episode will last for a few hours and then be gone. Sometimes to come back a few weeks later and sometimes I will not have an episode for over a year. Whenever I have told doctors about it they, at first, think it's my ovaries. But once I point to the exact spot they all say "oh that's more in your leg". It is in the indentation between my body and my inner thigh. One doctor said it's right on the femoral nerve. The one time that I went a year and half without an episode, I was doing 1 hour of pilates a day. Does anyone have any advice for me? I live in constant fear of the pain, it is so intense. I am always on edge that it's going to strike.
Thanks for listening.
