Hi I have burning groin pain left side for over 5 years now. Had scans
on testicles. Urine tested. blood test for prostate trouble. I am male
aged 65 years. Also X ray for arthritis in hip. All OK. Strange thing
is when I lie down or go to bed paid is relieved and when wake up in
morning a letter better then pain returns. Whilst on holiday in US and
driving a comfortable seated car the second week all pain disappeared.
Returning back to England and driving my car pain is back. Have tried
another car for 3 weeks but no improvement. I thought the pain was
caused by my cars seat and which I purchased 5 years ago. The pain
never lets up. My Doctor now can only prescribe pain killers which I
have refused and am trying to get to the root cause if possible.
There is no answer at this time.

There's a thing called sciatica, where a pinched nerve in your back
causes numbness in your leg.

Go and see a Chiropractor.

The good ones are truly amazing and not that expensive.

Sadly, NHS doctors only have around 15 minutes per patient and they
have only limited diagnostics capabilities, hence they typically
prescribe some combination of antibiotics, pain killers and
anti-inflamatories which may relieve the pain temporarily but
(generally) do not cure the underlying problems which, as Stan Martin
says, could be sciatica caused by a trapped nerve in the back.

Forget physios. acupuncture, ultrasound and homeopaths for starters
and dig out a really great chiropractor.

If you tell me where you live, I can make some enquiries for you.

Or just thumb your way through Yellow Pages.

Good Luck!

Was the car in the USA an automatic ?
Are your UK cars manual ?

I agree that you should see an osteopath, it does sound like a pinched nerve.

Jerry ...

I did not recommend an Osteopath ...

I recommended a Chiropractor!

(There is a difference.)

I wondered about that

I did some checking on 'Chiropractors' a few months ago and was
surprized to find that some of them don't believe in germs
transmitting disease.

After a few glasses of Cab Sauv, I'm not really up to finding
references, but I've a vivid memory that some chiropractors are South
of Barking.

OTOH I know of one round my way who has sorted out a number of my friends.

you can post your medical question for free and a doctor will answer
it at  They sell therapeutic
ultrasound, and the doctor there specializes in this sort of problem.
