Back Problems board

Hello GracefulOne,
As of today, I'm a new member of these message boards. I've had 2 episodes of extreme groin pain. The 2nd time it was on the opposite groin. I've been looking desperately for any info I could find. Luckily, I came across your message dated 9-20-2007 after searching everywhere on the Net. My first groin attack woke me up from sleep. I don't know how I made it to the kitchen, but that's where I passed out from the intense pain..I was fortunate that I didn't break any bones as I have osteoporosis. 'Course I upchucked too, so that made it even more interesting. After that, I tried the Vicodin I had on hand from my back pain, but it didn't help at all. I won't go into the other facets of my experiences with x-rays etc. as I'd like to keep this short & to the point. Suffice it to say, I've never experienced anything like it. Your input about SIJD really educated me on my possible diagnosis. It gave me direction, 'cause up to now, I had absolutely no idea & was getting pretty down about everything. And guess what, my dr. called today & said that's what it might be (without my input, of course). I have an appt. with an orthopedic surgeon this coming

I can't go thru it again, so I hope I get some help & at least some pain medication that will work in case I do. Thanks for your input. Sincerely, junebug211
