    Hidden hernias in women usually have pain in the same area, with radiation to the hip, back, vagina, or down the leg. Infrequently, we see an isolated burning pain and that is all. With extra sensitivity in the area.

    MRI pelvis should be the most sensitive study to identify this. It is best when performed with beardown views AND correctly interpreted by your radiologist and/or surgeon.

    Psoas impingement is activity related. And the area is usually not tender to touch. A good orthopedic surgeon should be able to help figure that one out. Other hip problems can also exist, such as labral tear.

    You need a detailed review of the entire scope of issues and then your pain can be treated successfully. I would be happy to see you in person or you can choose to send me your information to review and help figure it out. I offer online consultations for those who cannot fly in to see me.
