Pressure on groin area in morning
I have, for many years, suffered with pain in my groin area. This pain is can be described as a feeling of pressure which is worse in the morning when I awake. It is, however, constant and is always noticeable.

I was diagnosed with herpes over 20 years ago. Will that have anything to do with the feelings?

Bouree, I suppose it’s possible that it’s due to the herpes, but it’s much more likely to be due to something like a hernia. The best would be to have it see to by your doctor. Good luck.
