Groin vaginal acute pain

Groin vaginal acute pain

I'm having sharp, breath-taking pain upon walking on my inner right groin area. Yesterday the sharp pain dulled out and turned into a deep almost vaginal burn feeling when walking.

And tonight, back to a sharp, debilitating pain radiating from my front right pelvic hip area done into the groin and back to my right sits bone area... And tonight it aches when I'm sitting with my leg elevated...

I had my second child in late april. Vaginal birth both babies. No real symptoms until Wednesday night. No obvious trauma, no fall.

I am active (especially with a 21 month old and a 5 month old) I walk daily and am trying to get back into running....which means I've ran twice in the last year....

Should I see someone for this? Or is this just a pulled groin that I should rest? The inner vaginal shooting pain/burn while walking confused me yesterday as I've never had that before... It took my breath away.... Please help. Thank you.


Hello Christina,
I don't generally believe in rushing off to the chiro / doctor but if it's "take my breath away" pain then you'd better see someone.

This could be a local problem, like a muscle strain, or capsular strain of the hip join, or referred pain from the sacroiliac joint or upper lumbar spine.

If the pain is mainly when walking, then I'd think of something local in the groin. Unlikely to arthritis or an impingement syndrome with sudden onset like this.

See if you can work out what relieves and aggravates the pain.

Any back pain? Maignes syndrome is a referred pain from the back to buttock and groin area.

Look up Femoral nerve too on the Search this site …

Meantime, be careful; do some gentle hip and lower back exercises, and perhaps you'll be lucky and it will settle.

Child rearing years are hard. Lots of lifting... probably related to moving kids about.

Good luck, sorry I can't be more specific. Let us know in a few weeks how you are getting on. Keep to this thread.

Find a good chiropractor may be your next step.

Thank you
by: Christina

Thank you for the response. Luckily, after a few days, the pain went away. I went to Disneyland shortly after posting this, and I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to walk the park. But that actually seemed to help...(also, the 7hours it took to drive down there probably helped, too. It gave me a chance to really rest the area). So I haven't seen anyone about it yet. And I guess I'll wait and see if it happens again. That was a terrible pain. And I still don't know what it was or why it happened. Just happy it's gone now. Thanks again for your input.

[The good news, Christina, is that many conditions, given a modicum of common sense, are self-limiting.

Be careful now, give it a chance to heal, and doing some gentle back and hip exercises. Plenty at C-H look in the Nav bar on the left.

Interesting challenges of the day

1. Mr S is a 76 year old man with neck pain of some 9 months duration. Luckily, most of the discomfort is upper cervical which is only rarely arthritic; his lower cervical spine is a degenerative mess that I've left alone. After seven treatments his pain and stiffness is 50 percent better, and he's happy in the circumstances. He can sleep through the night now and that makes a huge difference.

2. Mr P is 32 year old man with very severe lower back pain radiating to the big toe which is 30 percent numb. He had an episode three weeks ago, took anti inflammatories and was soon better as is typical of the medial disc herniation. But before it healed, after a trivia it came roaring back, much worse. The characteristic crossed sign was evident; sitting in a chair, straightening the right leg provoked severe left back pain and tingling in the leg. He's doing well.

3. Severe lower back pain is scary; just ask Mrs P. Just watching her get out of the car I she was in trouble; she had a slipped disc at L4 making her lean towards the opposite side; luckily she had no pain in the leg. Despite family pressure that this was far too severe for a chiropractor, she persevered. Within five days she was standing upright, and after two weeks almost painfree. 

Despite a hectic job, she wisely took my advice and stayed home for what I call exercising bed rest.

4. Mr S has had lower back, groin and back of thigh and calf pain for fourth months.

He has a pincer deformity in the hip causing the stabs in the groin, and a degenerative facet causing the sciatica. Both are responding well to chiropractic and he's well pleased; sixty five percent better after three treatments.

5. Mr T is a wise man; he's taken a warning TIA seriously and has lost 15 pounds, and has at least as much again to lose. A change to a low starch diet and half hour daily walk has made the difference; but the walking is making his foot and back miserable. The expensive orthotic is hopeless; luckily his hips and back are fine, but he needs a simple heel lift.

6. I too have had serious lower back issues, luckily fixed by my own chiropractor; so I too have to do my exercises, take care when lifting supers full of honey, gardening and using the chainsaw. Regaining the function of your spine is just as important as the pain.

7. My own granddaughter, only 7 is hypermobile giving her pelvic, knee and ankle issues. Xrays show a mildly dysplastic hip. Years ago we would have called it growing pains. She too regularly needs chiropractic care and luckily responds well. Increased range of motion is more difficult than too stiff in my opinion. Our care is for kids too.

8. This 65 year old lady is a serious gardener; every day she is bending, lifting and digging for 2 to 3 hours a day. It regularly catches her in the sacroiliac joint, so she has a treatment once a month that sorts it out. She does her lower back exercises faithfully.

9. This 88 year old lady is an inspiration; every day she is busy in the community. With a nasty scoliosis she manages very well with a chiropractic adjustment every six weeks and exercises faithfully done.  

10. Mr X is a 71 year old retired man who wants to continue with maintenance care every six to eight weeks; he had suffered from two years of lower back pain when he first came a year ago. He has no discomfort now after 8 chiropractic treatments, but is aware that danger lurks.

11. Mrs C has been having severe headaches, and taking a lot of analgesics. It's a non complicated upper cervical facet syndrome, and she's doing well.

12. Mr D is a 38 old year man with chronic shoulder pain after a rotator cuff tear playing cricket. It responded well to treatment, but he knows he must do his exercises every day; for two years he couldn't sleep on that shoulder.

13. Mr D, a 71 year old man, has a severe ache in the shoulder and midback since working above his head. Trapped nerve tests are negative but he has advanced degenerative joints of Luschka; after just two treatments he is 50 percent better. Can we reach 90?

And so the day goes; chiropractors shouldn't be treating the elderly most medical sites state but that's so much bunkum.

Greetings, Dr B.
You helped me quite some time back with a soothing and professional response which turned out to be exactly correct. I now consult a local chiropractor. You write a superb newsletter, too.

Your own unresolved problem. Pose a question

Knowing that up to 70% of the time the correct diagnosis is made with no examination, no special tests, no xrays, but just from the history, there's a fair chance I can add some insight to your unresolved problem. But at least 30% of the time, I may be quite wrong! Give plenty of detail if you want a sensible reply.

You visited this chiropractic help site no doubt because you have a problem that is not resolving and want to know more about what chiropractors do.

The quickest and most interesting way is to read one of my ebooks of anecdotes. Described by a reader as gems, both funny and healthful, from the life and work of a chiropractor, you'll love them. Priced right at $2.99, though Kindle fiddles the price without telling me.
