Subject: Groin pain

Has anyone ever suffered from groin pain before? Currently having a flare up but ended up in A&E yesterday with awful stabbing pains in my groin. Dr suspected kidney stones,hernia or problems with ovary, but after ct scan thinks it was referred pain from either knee or hip and is writing to my Rheumy. Has anyone experienced this type of stabbing pain in the groin before?

Thanks for replying Rhona & Teresa. Teresa, it's funny you should say that, as my GP prescribed me Gabapentin last Thursday & I wasn't sure why, just thought he didn't know what else to do until I saw my Rheumy on 21st, but it seems to be used for neropathic pain! My pain is exactly as you explained, hope to find out more on 21st. Currently taking Prednisolone, Planquenil, Etoricoxib and Gabapentin as well as codeine & paracetamol as needed. Hope your pain settles soon, it's helpful to know others are experiencing similar things & you're not alone. Nicola
