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

A few weeks ago I started have sharp pains in my lower groin, underneath, where the testicles meet the leg - near the rectum. The pain has now spread slightly down the inside of my legs. The area behind my knees is tender. Also, I have had shooting pains in both legs and feet. Very weird and quite scary. Occasional slight pain in my lower abs, in front, but it's mainly underneath.

I had an ultrasound yesterday after two trips to my family practitioner. He thought I had an inguinal hernia, even though the pain really isn't "in front" and there is no bulge. NO inguinal hernia, according to the radiologist. I'm going to a sports med doctor tomorrow.

The only thing that changed in my workout routine leading up this was that I ramped up my sit-up routine quite a bit...

Does anyone have ideas? I would really, really appreciate any input. Thanks!
