, I am very scared at a pain to the right of my groin top

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am very scared at a pain to the right of my groin top thigh, saw a gp today who suspected maybe a hernia, currently also suffering extreme adrenal fatigue which makes it near impossible to get appointments and make it to them. I am scared what to do next as alot of the time I am housebound.

Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
Thanks for this question
You need to confirm the hernia and have it fixed
did the GP send you to a surgeon?

I went to a walk-in gp, who is restricted in what they can do ie prescribe medicines, referrals etc. I struggle with a normal GP because I never know when I have that little energy to get out the door and make it to a set appointment.

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
You definitely need to see a surgeon to get this fixed.
go private if you have to

Is adrenal fatigue and a hernia related in anyway? I heard somewhere hernia can be a symptom of adrenal fatigue, since the muscles weak etc from adrenal faliure causes a hernia,.

no, not likely Dean
this is likely something that you were born with. hernias are VERY common in young males

ok thank you, ***** ***** from UK and the state of the NHS at the moment is atrocious, which is another worry, I can go private but again they are taking NHS customers now due to strain and even private have a average waiting time of 19-32 weeks.
