RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Mike in Va -

Regarding your theory of swelling entrapping the inguinal canal, let me add my own observations.

I have two main symptoms,
(a) pain in the upper left groin and
(b) a sensation of something pulling on my left testicle cord.

I've noticed that both these symptoms can come and go, almost by the minute. If I walk up the steps of my apartment, I sometimes will get one or both symptoms a few minutes later. But something is very interesting:

If I sit on the floor of my apartment and stretch my hamstrings very gently for just 20 seconds, and then get back up, both symptoms will disappear, sometimes for an hour or two, sometimes for just a few minutes.

This leads me to believe that you're onto something about the inquinal canal, but I'm thinking its not necessarily a swelling, but maybe some kind of a tenseness maybe??

I don't know. But it seems to me very useful to share all our observations.

Thanks for your good post.
