1st doctor says I have a strained hip flexor with some strain to the adductors. 2nd doctor says I have a hernia. 3rd doctor says I have a hernia, but not bad enough to be causing me this much pain. 4th doctors says I don’t have a hernia at all, but doesn’t know what I have. Physical Therapist says I have a muscle, but to the lower abdomen not to the hip flexor/addoctors, but that I could have a hernia, she doesn’t really know.
I am a marthoner runner. I cut way back on my training (for about 1.5)when the pain first set in. It only got worse. After a month of no running at all and PT I tried a couple short run/walks and was just as bad off as I was prior to PT/Rest.
I have been reading about something called a sports hernia (aka sportma’s hernia, athletic pubalgia, Gilmore’s groin) and what I am rwading sounds all to familiar. Anyone know anything about this?
