Genitofemoral neuralgia (genitofemoral pain) is often present for some time before a diagnosis is made, adding to the frustration that goes with this type of pain. Damage or compression to the nerve, as well as conditions which damage the lining of nerves in general may lead to genitofemoral nerve pain.
Like many types of neuropathic pain, genitofemoral neuropathy is often described as sharp, shooting or throbbing. This type of pelvic nerve pain may be felt in the abdomen, lower back or between the legs. It may come and go, or it may be more persistent. Some people report feeling this type of pelvic nerve pain more when lying down. Contact us today to learn more.
