Since I had a Sinus infection a little over 2 months ago, I have been trying to get my current flare under control. Before this, I was in remission for over a yr. I feel like I am at the tail end(no pun intended) of this flare, but this morning, the upper inner area of my left groin was killing me. Any thoughts on this? It's been a while since I had a flare, I can't remember if this happened to me before or not.

I forgot to mention, that 3 days ago I switched back to Asacol, since I have like a 3month supply from my GI. I thought going back might help me get my remission, since I was on Asacol for 8yrs before swithcing to generic Colazal.

you mean the lower left side of the abdomen...like where the sigmoid would be?

Are you female...could be ovulation? I think I asked you that before, can't remember.

Low in the rectum inflammation can cause more discomfort...especially if the stool is more formed going through the colon. Especially if there's some gas.

Are you using any rectal meds?
 
Could also be nerve related from sitting in tight pants or pressure of underwear or just plain old back pain radiated down a nerve in that area.  Does it go down the inside of your leg as well?
 
Have you been exercising, dancing or walking lately?

Not a woman, so it ain't that. The pain is on the left side, in my pelvis, next to "my boys".

Well, are the boys packed in too tight in their underwear and pants?

Do you have an external hemorrhoid? Sometimes the pain is radiated to other areas..and I've felt it where I'd never have expected.

You should, however, do a manual check for lumps in that area, could be an inflamed lymph node.

My husband's "boys" get sore from nerve compression in his back..
or when he's been riding his bike or done too much bending/working around the yard. His job has him sitting for 12 hours, but ultimately it's radiated nerve pain.

I can relate to pain in that area from pressure on a nerve right at the hip level...yep, panties that are too tight or right at that level. The pain is horrific from the hip, diagonal to the front of the groin/upper leg and down.

Hope you find the culprit. I know it's not comfortable.

In addition to all that Quincy mentioned, be sure to keep yourself well-hydrated in the hot weather. Plus keep up your vitamin D, Calcium, & potassium levels. Those are things that can lead to pain in the pelvic & hip areas. Take care. Hope you get it all back under control ASAP. / Old Hat (nearly 30 yrs with left-sided UC; currently on 3 Colazal daily for maintenance of remission)

Well, I took Alive for 2 days, and drank a lot of water, and no more pain. Not sure what caused it, just glad it's gone.h
