Just wanted to know if anybody else gets groin pain. Mine is very painful. :( I try to switch sitting positions but it doesnot seem to help ? Not sure if its from the uti or IC ? I know it happens alot?

I sometimes get groin pain when I am flaring. :( I don't get it every time, but when I do it usually starts with some stabbing pains in my urethra, like someone is trying to put a knitting needle up there, and then progresses to a generalized ache. It is very uncomfortable. Sometimes, sitting in a hot bath helps me with that. My husband also helps sometimes by putting his warm hands very very gently over my crotch.
I hope you feel better soon grouphug grouphug

You hit the nail on the head thats exactly how it feels ! I take bath because of my uti's ! I can but DOC suggests I dont! So I am gonna have to get my husband and see if that helps ! :)
Thanks for advice
I almost always have groin pain and have since I was a child...that's why I believe that I've had IC all of my life~

Yes, me too. Groin pain is the pits. I also have had groin pain since I was 4 years old (I'm 52 now). I had an emergency appendectomy at 4 years where my appendix broke before they got me into surgery. Needless to say, it was touch and go. But I am convinced (no one has ever told me this) that this caused my IC, and that I've suffered with it ever since. Wish I didn't have to say suffer, but I did. I've had several surgeries because of pelvic pain, have been treated for upteen million bladder infections (with no infection present), wet the bed, wet my pants, cried in agony from bladder spasms and pain, and oh yes, been punished for wetting and complaining too much. cussing IC's great. Thank goodness they finally have a diagnosis. But my family is slow to believe still. I'm the family hypochondriac. Thanks for being here. Cheers! jester

I have AWFUL groin pain, that is actually one of my biggest complaints with IC. I am going to my Urologist on Tuesday to have Vulvodynia ruled out, you might want to do the same thing. I have read that taking a bath with Aveeno helps, but since I am new to IC I haven't tried it yet, but plan to this weekend. I haven't getting help from my husband, I just might try that! wink Hope you get to feeling better soon! angel

Very inresting...with all that is wrong with me I never considered it being because of IC. I have groin pain right at the scar of my left hernia surgery.....bath as fixer is out of the question for me. Oh well, still good to know others think it is there IC....although..makes little sense why left side would be worse me...hmmm. May Endo made things tighter over there.

I have severe pelvic pain and was dx'ed with pelvic floor dysfunction in Jan.. and was backed up by biofeedback.. that may be a question to ask your dr.. good luck and best wishes

I also have pelvic pain I still don't know what to blame Endo or IC. Hoping to get so help from my doctor this week.!
I have also found that baths or hot water bottles help.
Hello, and in answer to your question, I also get groin pain, I know I had some adhesions removed internally in my right groin, when I had my surgeries. I usually sit with a heating pad on my right side every evening and it does help, somewhat. I still think it is connected somehow to IC, I never had before I was diagnosed with IC. Hugs Iris.:hi:
