right sided groin pain

always on right side, had it for years now, worse at time of menstruation. gp thought it was a cyst or endometreosis, had scan and laparoscopy done which were all clear. been of pill now for two years, no babies yet! had xray of back which showed slight curvature of the spine. sometimes radiates into hip and down leg.

Hello Hilary,
Curvatures of the spine often correct themselves (have an apex) at the Level T12-L1-L2, the very region of the spine that produces the nerve that supplies the groin. You may have a short leg. Get it checked.

Pull your knee to the chest. Stiff, sore? Rotate and pull to opposite shoulder. Pain? FAIS and DHD need to be considered. Use the Search this Site function at C-H.

Meralgia paresthetica is a double-crush syndrome pinching the nerve as it emerges from the pelvis producing pain in the upper thigh. Prick your leg with a pin, and compare with the good leg. The same?

Frankly many possibilities, time to for a thorough chiropractic examination.

Hubby's sperm level been tested? If low, get him off all cosmetics and plastic containers, both proven to dramatically lower healthy sperm levels.

Good luck.
