Reply To: Relationship between groin pain & foot / leg pain
Thank you Jnomesh. You give me encouragement. I was feeling discouraged yesterday when the surgeon told me I had a less than 10% chance of having a hernia because my CT scan was normal. After the doctor pressed my abdomen and I felt pain but he couldn’t find a bulge, the top of my left pinky toe started to hurt after I went home. I assumed it was a seam in my sock that was scratching me but the pain is still there this morning, no sock and hurts just from walking barefoot. It feels like I have a series of scratches on the top of the toe but nothing visibly scratched. I thought ‘can the pressing of the abdomen cause this new pain’ or is it just a coincidence? There is some crazy connection! I will look for another doctor. Are surgeons the best doctors to call?
