Hey I have been trying to diagnose a similar problem but am very confused due to the wide varieties of symptoms mentioned. I have poured through these threads for hours and still have no conclusive feelings about whats wrong with me.
A few months ago i tweaked something in my lower right abs it felt about an inch below by an inch wide of my belly button. This happened during a decline sit up exercise. I stopped doing this exercise and continued all other training and soccer and got on fine for an extended period of time. Eventually after trying to include my ab routing a few more times this problem started showing symptoms during cardio (soccer). Well now i have alot of the symptoms mentioned i feel this dull "pain"(hardly hurts) about two inches above and to the right of my pubic mound and I have been resting for about two weeks and it just feels the same. I have seen a Hernia guy and he said it was a strain. I experienced pain while coughing/sneezing/laughing and now thats gone but i can feel that dull ache when i do the aforementioned.
What confuses me is i have no pain in my legs or hip/groin regions! Please help!
p.s. i have dealt with many nagging injuries and i stopped all activity as soon as i felt something was wrong.. this might be pertinent information as to why things aren't worse for me. WILL THIS HEAL!?
