Right Groin Pain Radiating To The Right Leg With A History Of Myoma?
Good afternoon, my name is yanti, 33 years old.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain that starts from the groin to the right leg can appear due to various reasons. One of the most common causes is related to the habit of carrying out activities with non-ergonomic postures. This can be triggered by your work activities that require you to sit for a long time or because you are used to breastfeeding in an inappropriate position. In addition, your busy schedule in taking care of the baby can also cause complaints to get worse.
The pain you feel may be the result of an injury to the pelvic or groin nerve. This condition often occurs in mothers who previously gave birth normally vaginally, which is due to a very great pelvic stretch during delivery. Not only pain, sufferers can also experience other complaints, such as easy tingling of the feet, feeling numb, or also difficulty in controlling movement and the urge to urinate.
Myomas (fibroids, fibroids), or benign tumors that originate from the muscle cells of the uterus, can also cause pain. This pain is usually felt in the lower abdomen. However, if the myoma is large enough, the pain can also radiate to the groin, even the legs.
It is also possible that the pain you are experiencing is caused by other factors, for example:
Pinched spinal nerves, for example due to calcification, tumors, infections, herniation of the nucleus pulposus
Deficiency of vitamins B1, B6, or B12
Deficiency of calcium, potassium, magnesium
Lymphadenitis (inflammation of the lymph nodes) in the groin
Viral or bacterial infections, eg chikungunya, leptospirosis
Pelvic or lower leg injuries
Pelvic inflammation, and so on
You can first check your complaint to a doctor at the nearest health facility (not necessarily a hospital). Through a thorough evaluation, doctors can generally detect a potentially dangerous condition that needs to be treated quickly. If possible, you will also be advised to undergo further tests, such as x-rays, ultrasound, laboratories, and so on.
It is not an easy thing for mothers to be able to take care of the baby while working and endure the pain that is quite intense as you are experiencing. Therefore, ask your husband and relatives for help to ease your tasks, such as taking turns taking care of the children. You can deal with your current pain by compressing it using a warm compress. Also take paracetamol when the pain is severe (this drug is safe to take while breastfeeding). Expand rest, avoid the use of high heels. Improve your posture while working and breastfeeding (avoid sitting too long, sitting too hunched over, and breastfeeding while lying down). Regularly exercise, stay away from cigarettes, and maintain an ideal body weight so as not to cause excessive burden on your lower limbs.
Hope it helps ya..
