RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
Thanks Jonny.

I am halfway through the reading of this thread.

I am in Iowa, may try Dr. Joesting in MN or Cattey in WI.

A couple days ago, tried to jog for the weather is so nice and see how am I now. Felt my right groin kinda numb and freezed after a while, running very slowly.

Had typical inguinal hernia and fixed long before, this time there is no touchable bulge or anything, but feel like having one. Why? Because every time it is too painful in the groin and thigh, lying down help me soothe the pain. Walking is no problem for me, but sitting there more than half an hour the pain and discomfort just begin to accumulate. This puzzle me a little, the local doctor I saw two weeks ago say that if you have hernia, you should feel the pain when you are standing not sitting. This thing is the biggest mystery for me, someday it is more painful in left side, someday right, sometime groin, sometimes go to ball. Now my family doctor kind of tire of my complaint, he once said to me:"See how many trouble you can get in those areas." Made me very mad.

I think the next step is too get an MRI and rule out other possibilities, like oste pubic, etc, just due dilegence before you go surgery.

Bless the internet and guys on this thread.
