Thank you for the information.

The pain in this area can be due to a few possibilities.
There can be a muscle spasm or strain but that would not persist for months..

An impingement of nerve can also cause pain to radiate to this part.

This can be affected by posture or position.

Pain from urinary colic as from infection, stone can be felt here.

But those are usually associated with change in urine color, frequency or pain during urination.

You are not having any such.

Inflammation of intestine or colon, hip arthritis can be other causes.

Hernia can be a source of pain here.

Though it usually causes swelling but initially it may not be significant.

I would advise to take an examination by doctor as the pain is recurring.

Doctor can advise a few tests depending on clinical findings.

He can take an ultrasound examination of the area.

If the pain is much, you can take analgesics with antiinflammatory actions like ibuprofen or naproxen if there is no contraindication.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. If there’s anything else I can do, let me know.
