I have pain that runs from the right groin across to the middle of upper leg. I have been to an orthopedics, had therapy twice, had a steroid shot,, and a

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? Any redness or swelling in the leg?

No. I go to silver sneakers and do fairly well. Some days the pain seems worse. If I take Aleve it seems to help some. Can't take this always though.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No broken bones and last check-up was good. Had ovarian cancer in 2006, but didn't have to take any treatments and all check-ups have been good. Just went in April. My pain started in the fall of last year and has not gotten any better.

Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

What is the orthopedic diagnosis? What are they injecting?

What is your question about this situation?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
The orthopedic doctor had no diagnosis. He said he was puzzled and kept trying things. All I know is they gave me a cortisone shot and steroid shot.
My question is who should I see next to help me with this pain that runs from groin area to middle of upper leg. It is enabling me from my walking each day as it hurts to walk for any distance. Your help is welcome.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

Have you had an MRI of the lower spine.

And of the hip on that side?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
They found some arthritis, but nothing major. Dr said he was puzzled and keeps trying things. Do you have any recommendations or a certain type of dr I should see. I want to be able to get back to my walking. Thank you for any suggestions!
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 11 months ago

Yes.

MD of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Often Orthopedists do not have the full array of manual medicine to help, and physical therapy as well as other modalities are the mainstay of this.

Hip arthritis usually refers pain to the groin.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
