Really interesting to read comments...
I suffered with a pain in my right groin while playing football some 8/10 years ago. It hurt when I began to play, eased off during the match but was then tight and sore over the next 48 hours.
Stopped playing 3/4 years ago and increased my running. Strange thing was it did not give me too much trouble but if I stopped for a few days through injury/cold, the groin would flare up when I started running again, a reaction to lack of use.
In January 2004, I was training for the London Marathon and did not have any significant groin trouble. During my training, my left hamstring began to feel sore and after the marathon I had some treatment. My right foot began to feel painful when running on top and underneath and then suddenly my groin flared up and has not got better since. The left hamstring is much better and the foot only occasionally becomes sore, am assuming all is linked to groin injury.
The pain in the groin can be mild or so sore it causes me to limp, the abductor is very stiff and tight, pain runs right round the crease at the top of the groin from front to back and under the testicles.
I have been booked in for a digital MRI scan and can only hope something is found!
So far I have seen a physiotherapist, an orthopaedic physician, 2 orthopaedic specialists, a chiropracter had x-rays, MRI scan and a herniagram......
