RE: Anyone ever had a "Sports Hernia" aka: "Sportsman's hernia", "Gilmore's groin", or &
I had the same symptoms and i'm back to running pain free. It started with pain running down my right inside thigh. I had this for a year and a half and kept running. Then my left side got it. When I would sqeeze my legs together it would hurt. After a while my abdomin started hurting. When I would sneeze, cough laugh it would hurt. I finally succumbed, took 11 weeks off. I had an MRI and it showed a sacral ala stress fracture and an edema in my pubis symphisis. It started feeling better and I went back to running slowly but every time my abdomin and groin would still ache. Then I tried a shoe with a lower arch and have been running for weeks pain free. The day I changed shoes things got better instantly. Think what you want but isn't a new pair of shoes worth a try before surgery? I believe to this day that the shoes with the high arch were litterally slowly splitting me up the middle one stride at a time. This may or may not be the case for any of you but that is what happened to me. I thought the same as you folks. Sports hernia, Gimores groin, etc.
