I woke this morning, after a hard track day yesterday, to a searing pain in the area an inguinal hernia would occur. It's very odd, though, when I push with my finger in this one spot it feel like my skin a being burned and a deep sharp pain is felt that slowly dissipates. It's odd that pressure from hand hurts but few daily movements hurt and even crunches and leg lifts don't hurt.
It didn't when ran an easy 7 today but I felt it when I coughed or farted while running.
I'm hoping it is just a strain and it will go away. But when it hurts it really, really hurt like being stabbed in this one specific place. This is just the first day of pain but I really don't want have get surgery.
Can anyone who has a had an inguinal hernia give any feedback on your experience. Do these symptoms sound like a hernia or like a strain?
