RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
if there's anyone who's been through this kind of thing and can give me some info. please do...here's my hip story....

Last year i was diagnosed with a strained hip flexor/adductor muscle in my right hip. the pain started near my hip bone and slowly moved to my groin. i was in the middle of my track season so i kept running. i could run a speed workout on monday, take a day off, do a speed workout on wednesday, take two days off, then race on saturday. after 2-3 months of this and pt almost everyday, it finally started to feel better.

this same hip pain came back in cross country but only for about 2 weeks and then it was gone.

now the same pain is back but worse than it was the first time. the pain didn't even start near my hip bone it just started out deep in my pelvis area. so, my trainers told me to take as much time off as i needed to where it didn't hurt. so, i took 6-8 weeks off but after 2 weeks of training it's already back and worse than it was before i took the time off. I saw our school's doctor and he said since i have snapping hip syndrome, that's probably the problem. I had an MRI of my pevlis done but he said it came back negative (I don't think this guy is a great doctor, and i had just taken 6-8 weeks off so i dont know if that affected the results).

anyway, my hip hurts as my foot hits the ground and i start pulling my leg through. It used to only hurt in my pelvis but recently it's been a shooting pain starting from that area and going halfway down my knee.

can anyone help me with this? thanks in advance
