possible hernia
RE: Positive Story
I have self-diagnosed myself as having a hernia. As a 30 year old competitive runner, I have been running with a weird sensation for a week. At first I thought it was a tight psoas muscle or psoas bursitis, but I fear it is not (as I also have a slight bulge that follows the contour of my pelvis.)

As it has been my choice, I have no insurance. However, my question is "Can I apply for insurance, wait the 90 days, and then claim a hernia?" Or should I fly to Philly/Charlotte/Palo Alto or even Germany or Thailand to get this done? How much out of pocket am I looking at? 10-15k? Can you haggle a bit if you pay cash?

I am located in northern Ohio BTW
