I have had the symptoms for about 8 weeks and have not run.
My doctor sent me to a surgeon who said I had a groin pull.
No one has mentioned a sports hernia. Mobic or Advil, ice, rest. I still hurt.
On 1/16/06 The Mayo Clinic Newsletter seemed to think that the so called mis-named "Sports Hernia" was a myth best treated by rest. Title -- "Sports Hernias" Best Treated With Inactivity

On 11/3 and 11/4/06 Mayo gave a Symposium on Sports Medicine where a presentation was made by the Keynote Speaker on Sports Hernias, Athletic Pubalgia and Related Groin Injuries --http://www.mayo.edu/pmts/mc8000-mc8099/mc8012-21.pdf
I would be curious to know what he said.
