    Question Spine problems and now groin pain???

    First, I appologize if you have already read this. I posted on the Back Board as well. I've been dealing with a failed fusion (L4-5), loose hardware, 2 herniations(L2-4), OA of spine, osteoporosis, stenosis and sciatica. I have been able to keep it under some sort of control by limiting my lifestyle. But last night, out of nowhere, I got a sharp pain in the groin area that lasted for a few hrs. I had never experienced anything like that before. Could that be symptom of something worsening?

    Thanks for all info.

    Re: Spine problems and now groin pain???

    Hi lfoster21 aka Lorie,

    I get the same groin pain on the right side only from time to time. My Pain Doc says its coming from someting in the lower L's. My SI joint and most of the L's are garbage. The upper L's and lower T's are autofusing from DISH so his reasoning is that it is caused by one of the lower ones.

    To answer your question it is very likely something acting up. Getting worse I can't say but something down there is certianly causing the mischief.

    Hope you can get a handle on it.

    I have groin pain too. But it seems to be related to my difficulties with walking which are considerable. I had surgery but nothing changed with regard to walking. A urologist upon seeing how I ws walking ( post surgery ) told me that the groin pain is probably due to the way I walk. I had groin pain before my surgery, on my cervical spne. Hope this helps somewhat.

    Re: Spine problems and now groin pain??? "Sacroiliac Joint"

    When you have groin pain, it's likely your Sacro iliac Joint is acting up. The joint itself is suppose to be immobile, held together by ligaments.

    I had strained the ligaments of my SI joint and could not walk. Neurologist did NOT diagnose it. I underwent Lumbar Lamenectomy that DID NOT CORRECT IT. Later, via a hands-on physical therapist it was ascertained it was my SI joint.

    I found a SI joint specialist here in Atlanta, received "PROLOTHERAPY" over a 10 week period, went to PT for aqua exercises and am walking again.

    I go every 6 months for a prolo shot as the ligaments are now vulnerable, as is the case with a sprained ankle.

    MOST Orthos and Neuro WILL NOT acknowledge the Importance and VITAL role of the SI joint. If they did and it gets corrected it will negatively affect their income from Lumbar surgeries.... If the base onto which the spine lies (SI joint)is unstable, it does and can lead to other spine issues and vice versa.

    Good luck

    Look into information on Ankylosing Spondilitis an Arthritis of the spine.
