Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually you are correct, this pain can certainly be due to nerve damage in the region OR even due to compression of the nerves in the back which can even cause groin pain. Sometimes the nerves may be damaged due to compression and that in turn can commonly cause groin pain which may worsen on walking or even sitting down. The numbness in the foot is also likely to be due to the condition. the injections in the back would reduce inflammation in the area but they may not help the pain due to nerve compression in other regions of the lower body. The best way to determine the cause here would be to get a NCS/EMG test done which can be diagnostic here. Once that is done we can consider various medications to control the pain, these can include drugs like lyrica or neurontin which target the nerves directly. if that does not work then we can consider bvarious procedures including,
TENS therapy which uses a device to control the pain due to nerves
Laser therapy (Cold laser therapy or Low Level Laser Therapy)
Interferential therapy - a type electrotherapy
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) – another type of electrotherapy
COOLIEF Cooled Radiofrequency treatment
Calmare Scrambler Pain therapy (medical device)
I would suggest trhat you discuss these options with your doctor or a pain management specialist.
