Painful burning in Lymph Nodes (Groin)?

Postby sagar » Thu Nov 08, 2012 6:33 am

Yesterday i woke up to painful burning feeling in my groin area but i thought it was just a little pain that would go away but i noticed through the day i still felt it if i sat in certain positions and 24 hours later (now) it is still very painful when i am in them positions , i looked up what could be wrong and it came up with a couple diseases

Richard, the name for the condition you have is termed " inguinal lymphadenitis" and is very often a result of an infection of the skin in the leg(s) or other nearby area. You should call your doctor for an appointment if this continues. The only condition I could find that matched your listed symptoms is : "Osteotitis Pubis" and if you follow this link you will come to the same information describing this condition. Best Wishes

I will try to help you narrow ut down a bit.

you are likely too young to be at any substantial risk to have an aortic aneurism.

Is it painful to pee, and do you feel like you have to urinate all the time? if so, consider a Urinary tract infection. I doubt that it is hydronephrosis, as you would feel pain higher up, like in your lower back.

Considering that it just started suddenly upon waking up one day, i dont think that it is: lymphoma, the plague, anthrax, shingles, lumbar spinal stenosis.

Do you have a fever, if not, it is unlikely to be: the plague, a tick bite, lymes disease.

Are you sexually active, if not, it is unlikely to be crabs

is it sharp pain, if so it is not going to be: lice, lymphoma, plague, shingles, tick bite, lyme disease...

have you ever have had a muscle strain before, if so you should remember what it feels like, and if you were doing something like running, you should be able to narrow it down to this.

If none of the above thoughts led you to a clear picture, my guess is that you have mononucleosis or other infection that your body is trying to fight off.

Of course, it is always possible that your mom is right, and it could be nothing.

To get a more clear answer, you will need to give a greater description, like if it is a sharp or dull pain, if it hurts while doing certain movements, or urinating, if you are sexually active, and if you have a fever or not. Talking to a doctor wouldn't hurt either.

Sounds like you are developing Hidradenitis Supperativa. I've had this for 35 years in my groin...see your doctor, he is the best person to diagnose you.
