View Full Version : IBS-can it feel like hip /groin pain ?

10-04-2012, 10:22 AM
my dr. told me I probably have IBS-A based on my symptoms. but I have this lower left abdominal/pain which feels like groin and hip pain. I had pelvic/vaginal ultrasound ( one small uterine fybroid fund, they say shouldn't cause this pain ), had hip/pelvic x-ray it say unremarkable hip, mild degenerative change at left SI joint. can this pain be from IBS ? I will probably get an order for pelvic MRI, but I was wondering about IBS.

Is it on your left side? I have had IBS for many many years. Alot of my pain is right in the left groin area and to the inner part of my hip bone. So I would say YES!!! Its way worse when I have not gone to the bathroom for a few days or have really bad gas. Have you had a colonoscopy to rule out any other problems? MaryAnn

I had colonoscopies, I'm due in April for the 5 year follow up bc 12 years ago they found a cancerous polyp. My dr. said I can wait til April so no I didn't have a colonoscopy for this left side pain. But I'm going to see an orthopedic dr. too in 2 weeks, to see what he thinks, bc my GE dr. doesn't think there is another problem but the IBS.
Thanks for your reply

I have had that at times. I sharp pain into the groin area. Had it several years ago, it actually would stop me dead in my tracks. Went from doctor to doctor and they all said IBS. Havent had it in years like that, but am happy to say it didnt turn out to be anyhting else, so I hope that helps.
