I have a pain, spasm in my groin down my leg on the inside…

Customer Question
I have a pain...

I have a pain, spasm in my groin down my leg on the inside front part of my left leg. It comes intermittently maybe minutes apart and may go away for several days before reappearing. I have been taking Advil but it doesn't really help.

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

No redness or swelling or tenderness to the touch.

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

I recently was diagnosed with a right scrotal hydrocoel but there is no tenderness there. My urologist said it is not involved.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, it sounds condition like obturator neuropathy can cause this.

Neuropathy means nerve injury, and the obturator nerve supplies the inner aspect of the thigh. It may get compressed as it travels to supply the inner aspect of the thigh radiating from groin to upper leg.

Sometimes this kind of condition may actually arise in the lower spine in the form of pinched spinal nerve.

You will require further investigations including EMG/Nerve conduction study, an MRI of the lumbar spine and see a neurologist for further evaluation and management.

You can consider physical therapy.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

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.
