RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin
Hi everyone. I have read every page up to page 55 and I thought I would post. First off, great info here!

My groin pains all started about 2 months ago. I play basketball about 2-4 times a week. I am 33 years old and I am pretty fast for my age. My groin pains just mysteriously appeared after a game of basketball. Now that I think back, I actually did roman chair sit-ups the night before and I haven't done those in a long time. I tried to rest it for a week and I thought I was fine because the pain wasn't there anymore. Sure enough it came right back after a long game of Basketball. Did this for about 2 weeks. I went to see my family doctor and she did the whole cough and touched my nuts, but ruled out a hernia.

I mainly feel pain in my right groin area, deep in the crevice and a slight pain in my right lower abdomen. 2 weeks ago, I decided to fully rest it and not do any activities. Then a couple of days ago I tried a stationary bike and then jogged a bit. I felt awesome. Then yesterday, I tried a full court of bball....but after about 45 mins, the sharp groin pain came back and I couldn't sprint anymore.


I went home, iced it, heated it, iced it, heated it and all is well again. The pain is very very very dull. And almost gone, but worried that it will come back again if I play.

I can touch my toes, I have full range of motion with no pain, I can get up with no pain from sitting, coughing or sneezing doesnt hurt, i just dont know if it is different than the AP or Sports Hernia in this thread.

Has anyone have the same symptoms as I do? Meaning NO PAIN AT ALL until sprinting or cutting? I have an appointment with a local sports med doctor that deal with a lot of the Charger Football team on Friday (tomorrow) and hopefully he can tell me what I have.


I'll keep all posted.
