RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I thought I'd give this thread a bump since I've been dealing with symptoms similar to those mentioned often here. For the past 8 months or so, I've had groin pain that has gotten progressively worse. It seemed to come about last summer when I was doing alot of ab work and lunges. If I get up from a seated position at a strange angle, I'll sometimes feel a popping in my lower abdominal/adductor insertion area. I've followed this thread for a while, half in fear and half in denial. I haven't taken any signifigant time off from running (until now - going on 1 week) for fear of losing fitness and because of some of the discouraging accounts I've read of those who've recieved no relief from rest and/or surgery. I have no diagnosis of course, but is it possible that I have something other than a sports henia? Has anyone out there overcome this without having surgery? Any positive and/or alternative solutions?
