Hello ,
I have been expiriencing pain in my right pelvis when I raise my right foot for the past two months , I would like to know whether I need to consider visiting an orthopedic specialist?
I only feel pain when I raise my foot
thanks for your response
This is Dr. David

I would start by seeing your primary care doctor or GP general practitioner doctor.

you could have a strained groin muscle or a pulled groin muscle.

you could have a possible inguinal hernia.

your primary care doctor will examine the area and look for causes for your pain.

and can refer you to see an orthopedic specialist if you need to

but I would start with your primary care doctor.

let me know if you have questions.

Thanks for your response , I would like to know whether it could be a serious problem or not, I am a bit nervous about it
Thanks Doctor David
at your age most likely it is not a serious problem.

but you have to see your doctor for an examination to know what is going on.

let me know if you have other questions.
