RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Hi all --
No official diagnosis for me as of yet, but several signs point towards (according to others) a sports hernia. The area hurts when I sneeze/cough, is quite tolerable to run on unless I'm twisting/going up hills/going fast, and can hurt to get out of bed or lift both my legs above my chest when lying on my back.
I have a pretty important race coming up.... Is this something which can be trained through? Is surgery the ONLY option, or can I run the race, and then take a couple of weeks off and let it heal on its own?
As far as I can tell I'm not worsening anything by running on it....
Oh, and one more question, just for clarification: many people are noting pain on the pubic bone -- is that the little bony hip bone which protrudes slightly? I have pain there, which initially led to me getting a hip flexor strain diagnosis. Not exactly sure if this is the "pubic bone", however.
