Need to know why I have severe groin pain in my right side im.a female age 63
Dear Ms. Dabbs, Tens of diseases can cause groin pain, including fracture, joint inflammation,sciatica... The information you've provided is limited. We'll recommend you to visit your doctor, take physical exam and do some tests if necessary. In case it takes time, you may visit the online symptom checker, choose the symptoms that fit, and then you will be able to know what type of disease most matches your symptoms. http://healthtopquestions.com/symptom-checker-step-1/ All the best.

I too have severe groin pain on my right side of my crotch, and is extremely sharp and intense when stand up from sitting and lift my right leg to walk. I am a female, age 59, no appendix, no uterus, no ovaries etc. Had an umbilical hernia repair with mesh, then had revision where mesh was removed. Had total pelvic hysterectomy and ophemectomy at same time. Now I have a tennis ball size lump, two to three inches to my right of my navel. I get muscle cramps, but they feel more like, when you have the dry heaves and the muscles in your upper abdomen get really sore, so much that if you cough it hurts. That’s how they feel. Along with that I get constipated, and the groin pain. And since my second surgery five years ago, I have no external feeling in my belly, from the waist down to my bikini line, and I have gained at least 200+ pounds, and have no sex drive at all!
Please help me to understand what is going on with my body!
The lumps near the navel may be hernia. And after operation, you have constipation and groin pain. That may be caused by intestinal adhesion. And you have gained 200+pounds, that probably decreases your sex drive. So now first take a CT scan to confirm whether it’s a hernia or not. Second, maintain a healthy diet, and take some exercise to lose weight and relieve your constipation and groin pain.
I am wondering whether your groin lump is actually a hernia (inguinal hernia). Your intestine could be protruding into the hernia, accounting for your constipation. A ultrasound scan would simply confirm this.


As for the your loss of sex drive and weight gain, you may need to see an endocrinologist and get a hormone test to see if you have any hormone problems, such as an underactive thyroid.
I’m in so much pain I can’t stand it I’m ready to cut my leg off and kill myself it’s so painful I can’t even mow I put it back on and I don’t know if that’s going to help her not but I am crying as I write this I need help really bad I live is a veto California and I’m going to be 65 it’s on the right side of it’s in the groin area and it goes all the way hurting to the back and the
I feel your pain. I'm sorry you r going thru this . You have a pinched nerve in your back. Get a MRI done of your lower back Many Blessings. Marcykay.
It may be the ligament or femur, recommend you to see an orthopedist.
did you know something as simple as low potassium  can cause this...i know because i am going through this right now. It can cause heart flutter, hip/groin pain,foot pain , back pain, leg pain , feeling off, etc......and i am only mildly low....my dr tested my electrolytes and it was 3.2 and he told me to start eating potassium foods so i started drinking low sodium v8, coconut water, baked potatoes, bananas, canteloupe, etc all things with high potassium and slowly it is getting better.....i also started taking slow mag avail at walmart as well and d3. what can cause this...elevated b12, or avoiding foods with potassium because of high carbs , too high d3, taking sulfur things like msm, etc....
How do I get relief?

Direct and indirect causes of groin pain can include:

  1. Avascular necrosis (death of bone tissue due to limited blood flow)
  2. Avulsion fracture (ligament or tendon pulled from the bone)
  3. Bursitis (joint inflammation)
  4. Epididymitis (testicle inflammation)
  5. Hydrocele (fluid buildup that causes swelling of the scrotum)
  6. Inguinal hernia
  7. Kidney stones
  8. Mumps
  9. Muscle strain
  10. Orchitis (inflamed testicle)
  11. Osteoarthritis (disease causing the breakdown of joints)
  12. Pinched nerve
  13. Piriformis syndrome
  14. Retractile testicle (testicle that moves between the scrotum and abdomen)
  15. Sciatica
  16. Scrotal masses
  17. Spermatocele (fluid buildup in the testicle)
  18. Sprains
  19. Stress fractures
  20. Swollen lymph nodes
  21. Tendinitis
  22. Testicular cancer
  23. Testicular torsion (twisted testicle)
  24. Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  25. Varicocele (enlarged veins in the scrotum)
you definitely need to get your potassium checked  ( electrolytes) and your d3 , and b12....even a mild deficiency can cause terrible problems , pain etc.......my potassium dipped to 3.2 and all kinds of things started happening
