Back in Jan. I had a lymph node in my groin (only one side) that felt hard like a pea and was tender when I pressed on it. It lasted about 4-5 days total with no other symptoms (no flu like symptoms, no lesions, etc). This occurred about 10 days post contact. Since my previous negative tests for HSV 1 and 2 I've only had unprotected contact with someone who told me he has never been tested for HSV but has never had symptoms (he's 24). I believe him completely on this. The unprotected contact was maybe 5 minutes or so for two different occasions in total where I believe I was on him without either of us having underwear on. I only did this at all because I had been drinking. Should I be worried about the lymph node? Should I get another IGG at 3 months (so next Tuesday) and would it be accurate? I don't have HSV 1 (at least according to my test).

I noticed a rash where my groin meets my thigh, it was a bit itchy but the feeling went away a couple days ago, i was looking at it today and the skin is very dry, peeling a bit and some hair follicles appear inflamed, look like pimples. is this a mild genital herpes outbreak? i am a male and had protected sex with a women about 2 weeks ago, i had some burning sensations after the first week but they all but went away and came and went during times of high anxiety, but these hair follicles are really freaking me out.

Does anyone that has back problems have sharp nerve pain in their groin private area? I have had back problems for years and sometimes would get a sharp pain up my vagina. After a bad muscle strain in my back and using the elliptical machine I've had twitching and burning all over but also in my private area. Like around my **** it will twitch or vibrate, and then I will get the sharp shooting pain up my vagina and around my butt. I notice it more if I bend over that's why I thought it might be my back. I remember when the stabbing pain started I thought it was a female problem and my OBGYN said everything looked normal with my cervix and my paps have always been normal so she didn't know. She seems clueless.

i have been suffering from pain in my hip for a number of months now. it started like sciatic pain in my right which affected the hip and made me limp after sitting. this then improved and the left hip started to hurt. it started just on the outside feeling sore and now is so painful after sitting and trying to then move or on a morning its stiff but always aches like toothache into the hip joint, behind and the groin which sends shooting pain down the front of my leg. i am limping most of the time and the pain is worse after resting but never truly goes away. doc has sent me for a hip xray and given me anti inflammatory meds which i take alongside co codamol. to be honest this does not really touch the pain but dulls it a little. whether this is anything to do with this a few years ago i was told i might have fibromyalgia because i am very fatigued most days have pains in neck and shoulders ( now not too bad) which resulted in electric shock like pain in head and numbness. I was also told i had inflammation in my bowel after a camera (requested due to some bleeding) but they did not know what it was and then decided ibs :/. there is a number of things going on but at 42 the hips are really starting to get me down.

For about a month now I have had pain in my right testicle that spread into my groin and hip area. Also, occasionally I feel pain and discomfort in my upper right abdominal near the liver. This all started the morning after having unprotected sex but I went to the doctors and std test came back negative as well as the urine test came back negative. I have been having trouble getting solid erections since this day as well. What could be causing these problems?

I have had various health issues in the latter part of my adult life but one thing that has always remained constant throughout is my groin pain. It does come and go but, in recent years, has become a real, persistent pain. I think I have learned to live with it until I was recently Assessed as having ME/CFS.

My support suggests I self medicate as all pain uses energy!
One specialist I saw suggested it was ACNES and gave me a cortisone injection which worked for a short while.
I have asked my doctor to do a scan for me just to see if it is related to my ovary removal 3 years ago.
That brought up nothing.
recently had blood tests done and no concerns there.
has anyone experienced this pain, just in one groin, not both; the right side ??
I would love to hear from anyone who has any thoughts on this or experience of it themselves.
6 weeks ago whilst at home relaxing I noticed a short sharp twinge down the right side of my scrotum. Within a few days this had developed into pressure type dull ache up my loin towards my kidney. I'd say about a 5/10 on the pain scale. I tried to ignore it but it wouldn't go away and my anxiety started to grow. Shorty after I became quite ill and developed a mild fever. No discharge or pain when peeing tho.

I visited my doctor and she thought I had a UTI and gave me trimethoprim for 1 week. She sent my urine off to the lab. A couple of days into the course I felt a bit better but by the end of the course it still hadn't shifted. I'd say about 3/10 on the pain scale at this point but the anxiety had gone through the roof because when i went back to the doc they said there was no water infection. I thought I might have cancer, aids and all sorts . I was sure I had aids and wrote a will (please don't laugh).
I plucked up the courage to go to the sexual health clinic for blood and water tests. To my relief I got the results a week later which we're clear. During this period i also noticed i was having a lot of gas and sometimes id go to the toilet for a no.2 and feel like id have to go again an hour later. I then went back to the doc for an alternative diagnosis but I was a different guy and he was useless. Just said I've got a groin strain which I thought was rubbish because I hadn't done any proper exercise in about a week before feeling the first pain. I also fail to see how a groin strain can cause gas and some minor upper abdominal pains which I'd also noticed (maybe caused by anxiety who knows).
I started to think did the sexual clinic miss something? Have I got aids (a test can sometimes give a false neg)? I've been constantly on the web scaring myself.
By week 5 I'd had enough. I was having groin / pelvic / lower back / thigh pain. About 3/10 on the pain scale. I decided to go to A&E. the doc there examined me for a hernia and that was negative. I suggested prostatitis because it seemed possible giving my many hours of research and he didn't dispel it but I got the impression he couldn't be bothered to perform a rectal examine. I think he took the easy diagnosis of a groin strain and after giving me pain killers told me to come back in 2 months. Arrrghh!
To summarise Do these symptoms sound like prostatitis?
1. Groin,hip,thigh,lower back ache
2. illness earlier in the process and a general feeling of unwellness for about a month
3. some minor upper abdominal pains
4. also noticed ejaculation is not quite as satisfying (possibly anxiety)
I have been suffering from urinary incontinence for a few months. I was given blood tests, which came back clear, although one showed a slight problem with my kidneys. I had a bladder scan and this showed that my bladder is working okay, but is taking a while to fill. My doctor has never examined me, she justs asks me what's wrong and recommends medication. I told her that I have pain in my pelvis and groin area. She said okay I'll prescribe you detrusitol and wear a pad and we'll see how it goes. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing the incontinence. I'm only 39 and male and I am generally quite fit. I worry about people being able to see my pad and this is really getting me down. The incontinence happens nearly every night and sometimes during the day. The idea of being on medication and wearing pads for a lengthy period is making me anxious and depressed.

Does anyone suffer with the same severe low back, thigh and groin pain as I have been for the past seventeen months following my radical prostatectomy. I am fine for the first twenty minutes of walking or general activity before the pains starts and increases in intensity if I don't stop. I have had M.R.I's and scans. The spinal consultant said it is caused by a lymphocele which I have had drained once, but urology don't think this is the cause. Can anyone offer any suggestions please. The nerve pain can get unbearable.

I've been having pain in my calf for about a month now.in the last couple days the pain has started jumping around. To the sides of my calf,to behind my knee now it's in my groin as well. Also my right testicle hurts(right leg is where my pain is).I finally got to see my doctor today and he thinks I might have a Pinched sciatic nerve and is sending me for lower back xray.so does sciatica cause this dull ache that comes and goes in different parts of my leg?can it also be causing my testicle pain?

I was diagnosed as having a synovial cyst by a neuropsychiatrist. I had a procedure where he went in and drained the cyst along with that I had a steroid injection. Apparently he did not get much out of the cyst. The pathology report came back negative on what he did manage to get out.

On day two post procedure the pain starting coming back. Each day the pain level increased to where I am now a level 8 and sometime 9 and can barely stand the pain. My lower right back just above the buttock feels like there is pressure and is very achy. The deep achy pain goes into my right buttock and wraps around the lower groin area. The achy pain goes down my right leg and into my foot. It is a pulsating deep ache and I can hardly stand it. It also feels numb at times and I get pins and needle tingling. When I get up from laying down or sometimes sitting (when I can sit) I get this sharp excruciating pain in my right groin that doubles me over. I have to stay still in the doubled over position to let it subside before I can straighten up and walk. Sometimes the groin pain just hits me out of nowhere when I am standing.
On my follow up visit with my physiatrist he recommended I have a consult with a neuro spine surgeon. My appointment with the surgeon is in a couple of days. I feel very fortunate to get into see this surgeon who is very hard to get in to see. He is rated as "one of the best" in a very large healthcare system where I work.
I am taking 1500mg of gabapentin along with 6 ibuprofen a day. I am also taking hydrocodone. I fight the pain and only take on the average one pain pill a day because I don't like the groggy feeling.
My question is, has anyone else with a synovial cyst had all of these symptoms? Is the groin pain related to the compression on the nerve from the cyst. I appreciate any feedback and would love to hear from someone who has had these symptoms.
I have ongoing discomfort in my groin, lower abdominal pain, nausea and blood in urine. Any suggestions what this could be?

I've got a bump on my buttcheeck, that when touched produces small local pain but notable pain on my tailbone. the distance between both spots is about 2 inches. Is it common for herpes lesions, when touched, to cause pain not locally but rather at the end of the nerve?

This is the rather scary title for Viral Cold Sore Infection (EYES). I have no idea where it came from as I have never had a cold sore ever. I only know that it is extremely painful. It started 12days ago,and I just thought I had probably got a bit of gardening debris in the eye and used Optrex to soothe it, By Thursday it was very sore bloodshot and the lids were a little swollen .So I rang the GP for an emergency visit I met a locum, obviously newly qualified. I explained that there was a lot of pain under my upper lid. She duly looked at my eye which she said was perfect .so ,i tried again saying it felt as though there was a razor blade under the lid She lifted the lid and said she couldn't see anything and to come back if it got worse It did get worse over the next Three days. so Monday morning I went to where I should have gone in the first place, the Eye clinic at the hospital It opens at 8-30,I wa there at 8 as I know it gets very busy. Duly seen and given drops and a thorough looking at ,and he told me the reasons and even bothered to show me the pictures ,looked like three, ( yes I have three of the blighters squiggles gave me some eye drops and an appointment for next week. It is now Wednesday and eleven drops later....

Maybe about 1 minute without a condom. She then put the condom on and started. I showered and went home. 2 days later I woke up to painful pinching Feelings in my penis. The head of my penis looked bright red and kind of flakey. No visible sores. I had the usual std tests about a week later. All negative. The pinching lasted for about 5-6 weeks. I went for another round of std tests. All negative. My doctor gave me an anti fungal creams but it just seemed to irritate it..I ended up taking fluconazole antifungal pill. Maybe it helped? I've been going through extreme anxiety since this encounter.
I took the igg herpes blood test at 8 weeks. Negative. Going to my doctor tomorrow to see the numbers.
I am now 15 weeks post exposure. Was not able to get a blood test after 8 weeks. Tested negative prior to that.

My only symptom now is terrible pain that I could only describe as sciatic based off what I see online.
- constantly changing pain in my butt, inner and outer thighs, and my big toe on the right foot.
- constant pinching feeling in groin
- lower and mid back pain (can be mild or so painful, for example needing to lie down after a 5 minute run)
How likely is herpes to cause these symptoms (which have lasted three weeks now), without causing lesions?
Recently found out that I have genital herpes. It's scaring me because I'm a lesbian and I feel like I will never be able to have sex again. I have a couple of questions.

I'm in a relationship with a woman, would she contract herpes by giving me oral sex when I don't have an "outbreak"? Can she contract the virus orally?
What's are the risks and probabilities?
Can you have herpes 1 in your genitals or is it only herpes 2 in your genitals. What does this really mean?
