RIGHT GROIN PAIN AND numbness of inside right lower leg / Femoral nerve
Femoral nerve - RIGHT GROIN PAIN AND numbness of inside right lower leg
Lower right back pain with GREATER RIGHT GROIN PAIN AND numbness of inside right lower leg. Hello Steve,
This is mostly likely a Femoral nerve lesion in the mid to upper lumbar spine. Do any movements of your back, bending to the side for example, provoke the pain in the leg?
A positive Femoral nerve stretch would confirm the diagnosis.
For certainty, a hip condition needs to be ruled out. That also gives pain in the groin, but not the numbness.
Does your knee "give"? Feel weak? The knee jerk reflex needs to be tested.
Then there are some "medical" conditions that need to be considered.
If it affects the "cluneal nerves" then the pain will radiate down to the buttock area too. Called Maigne's syndrome.
This is a very painful condition, and is unlikely to respond instantaneously to any form of treatment. However, it is a condition routinely treated in chiropractic clinics. You'll have to be patient, do exercises and generally slow down and be careful. X-rays are recommended in my book.
