I e-mailed Meyers and got exactly that response. But really, what is he supposed to say? He can't diagnose you over the computer or the phone.
Another weird thing about my pains...unless I mentioned this already...I had appendix surgery in February 2005. At that time, my surgeon said that he found a hernia that might give me trouble later. I ignored this since I didn't have any pain and I clearly felt no palpable hernia. In July 2006, my groin pain started (and has not stopped yet). SO I asked my sports medicine doctor about what the surgeon said post op back in 05. The sports med. doctor says he thinks the surgeon was referring not to an actual hernia but a weakening in the inguianal (canal I think?) or the inguinal area or something...now, isn't this the same thing (or one of the things) that is or contributes to what is popularly called sports hernia - a weakness rather than an actual bulge? I'm wondering if whatever this was is what triggered my pain over a year later. My sports med. doctor doesn't seem to think so - he doesn't think it's a sports hernia, but I'm not convinced. My pain is still going strong after five months, even if it's mostly in the upper groin corners below the pelvic bone and not in the abs above it. Like Paul's son, I do have that weird feeling of tightness and unease in my lower abs though, like they are weak and strained sometimes when I pick something up or do certain maneuvers. Also like Paul's son, my pain has been relatively mild (with inactivity). Is this connection possible - a weakness noticed in February 05 in my abdominal area coming back to haunt me this badly starting in July 06?
