    Help needed for severe groin pain.
    An_252935 posted:
    Mystery Diagnosis Needed: Unexplained groin, pelvic, and bone pain for seven years.Please Help!!? 46 y/o female .Severe pain of right groin pain which extends to midline pelvis down to inner thigh. Symptoms are generally mild until drives, sits, or stands 30 minutes or longer. Pain is better when lays down on other hip, but does not completely diminish. Past surgical history: hysterectomy

    medical history: mild arthritis

    Dr. ordered CT scan with contrast of abdomen/pelvis, colonoscopy,EMG full pelvic x-ray, basic lab workup, and MRI's of hip and pelvis...all were negative.

    Pain is presently worsening and now unable to drive longer than 30 minutes.Dull pain is continuously present but is made excrutiating when putting pressure on the pelvic bone itself. Pain seems to be worst in groin, vaginal, hip area.

    Things ruled out already: Hernia, nerve entrapment, spinal and/or disc problems, arthritis, fibromyalgia,endometriosis.

    Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this odd presentation of symptoms could be? How about a next step suggestion? I am running out of options and I am 100% positive this is not "in the my head". Any further insight and ideas are greatly appreciated! Thanks.
