In the middle of my...
In the middle of my daily 2 mile walk, I suddenly and for no apparent reason I got a pain in my groin. By the time I walked the mile home, I could barely walk. That was a month ago, and I still have pain, especially if I try to do much of anything. Please help!

Thanks for your question. You should have this evaluated by your phsycian, as this may be a hernia. If it is a hernia, then it may require a repair by a surgeon. First and foremost you should go to your physician to be diagnosed.

It is not a hernia, There is no bulge.
Doctor: Dr. K., Doctor replied 8 years ago
It may not be a classic bulging inguinal hernia. There is a possibility of a femoral hernia. There is also a possibility of hip pathology that referrs pain to the groin, but it is imperative that you be examined. In addition, hernias do not always have a bulge, they can have intermittent pain, and should at the very least be examined.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
