Reply To: Relationship between groin pain & foot / leg pain
The abdominal pain is mostly on the left side, below belly button, groin region. When I’m sitting, it is right around the crease where my abdomen meets my left leg. The majority of my distress comes from burning sensations – it feels like I’m sitting on a bad sunburn, going down my legs to my knees. I sit with a bottle of ice water between my legs to relieve the pain. I just came back from a hernia surgeon who doesn’t think I have a hernia because my CT scan didn’t show anything. He said CT scan would be better than MRI for detecting hernias. He said he could try a diagnostic laparoscopy to rule out hernia. Thank you for your reply. I forgot to check this board before my doctor’s appointment and wish I knew to ask about the ultrasound with valsalva.
