Well, a fortnight after my last post I went straight back to the sam doctor, after pushing, he agreed to refer me to a specialist after doing blood tests to rule out anything more untoward (which I was pleased to hear they were fine)
SO currently waiting to hear back as to the name of the consultant & when it should happen.
He eventually accepted that there was a problem around the Linguinal Ligament (as I said 6 weeks ago) & suggested a steroid injection which would offer pain relief for 3 months!!
Apart from the fact I wasnt convinced he knew what he was talking about anyway, a temporary solution isnt something I want as the crux of the problem wont be sorted hence dragging on even longer
Well, just been to the GP again, and guess what, its anti-biotics time again.
after having a prod around its apparently my bladder, despite not having any other water-works related symptoms.
I did try pointing out that after reading up on hernia that my symptoms were identical to those described with people with sports hernia's. He just said he wanted to get me to give a water sample, finish the course of anti-biotics & we'll re-assess from there.
Of course, i will do what he has said, but I feel really frustrated, almost like i'm not being listened to. I may be made to look like a fool if im wrong, but my feeling is i'll be making an appointment in a weeks time & will be no further forward
First time poster, came across this site while trying to find out more about Gilmore's groin.
Seems to perfectly reflect the symptoms of what i've gone through the last few months.
Cant think of anyone one instance that has sparked it off but I do (or did when I could bear it) play football twice a week, golf usually twice a week as well as some jogging.
How painful is the sneezing by the way.
Anyway, I first visited a GP about 6 weeks ago & was told it was probably an infection & was prescribed anti-biotics, obviously they havent helped at all. I have made another appointment (different GP this time) & was wondering how to approach it. Obvioulsy I just have an inkling that this is the issue, and i dont want to come across like i'm telling him how to do his job.
Also, I have a health insurance policy with standard life through work, what should I be looking to do if the doctor wants to refer me to a specialist, should I inform him at this stage?
