Hi Anon

Thank for your post!

We cannot say what this pain is but it could be nerve pain or it could be hormonally driven.

Have you noticed it happens at a certain time of the month? Or after exercise or anything else you do in life?

If you've been having this pain for year it's time to see a doctor for the cause.
