Dull Pain in My Groin

by Curtis
(Altavista, VA)

I'm a sheriff's deputy and sit in a patrol car for sometimes hours at a time. I began experiencing dull pain in my groin, a pulling/aching sensation behind my knees and sharp pains in lower back and on top of iliac crest. Some days are better, some days are worse. I've often wondered if this could be fibromyalgia, but there's a lot of gray area with that diagnosis. Adding to the discomfort is a duty belt constantly pressing on my groin leg crease and waist line for 12-13 hours a day. The pain comes and goes and doesn't seem to be triggered by anything in particular. I've tried sleeping with a pillow under my knees, and that hasn't really helped. Blood tests showed all normal with no inflammation. I'm losing my mind. I also have an anxiety disorder that only adds fuel to the fire. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. God bless.

Check out the affect that belt is having. There are nerves crossing through that area that are directly involved with the innervation of your groin. The GFN or Genito femoral nerve is right there.
