Sounds more like a pulled muscle or such then a hernia. You would notice a lump or bump if it were a hernia.Originally posted by: MX2times
Well, yesterday afternoon, I had a big coughing fit for whatever reason and then I felt this dull pain down by my pubic bone. It isnt painful, just barely noticeable, kind of like a sore muscle. There isnt any bulging or anything visibly different though, and when I apply pressure around the area, it doesnt make it any worse.
Think I'll make an appointment to be sure.
yeah, OK I was born with one too, but it wasn't repaired till I was 18. BTW, this is a hernia in the muscle wall between the scrotum and the chest cavity, and it can be REALLY nasty, fortunately mine was just a weakend muscle wall, so nothing actually went from one side to the other. But, you know when you go the the doctor and they stick their finger in your sack and wiggle it around while telling you to cough? Well they did that, and the guy was like "hey this is interesting feeling", and proceeded to keep proding my balls with his finger for another minute. Anyways, the pain of having a guy stick his finger all the way up into by body through my balls was WAAY worse than the hernia ever was itself. So, just thought I'd share that fun story with the rest of you. The surgery was no big deal, I was back to 100% in 2 days, and never had to use any of the pain medication I got.
That's the standard "turn your head and cough" variety. It's relatively common in infants and toddlers and not that big a deal. A bit more painful as an adult I'm told. The umbilical hernia was no fun either - I had an "outie" the size of a ping pong ball.
I had a hernia in a single nut when I was younger (6-7) also. It wasn't deadly painful, but I had the feeling that one of my massive balls was being sucked into my body. I'd have to lay in a certain position to make it go away.
Yup, i get a sports hernia when I do extended ab workouts(more than 180* down with weights) after the second one, i stopped doing ab workouts.Originally posted by: MrMaster
This is what I have had for 8 months now:
A sports hernia, also known as athletic pubalgia, is a tear in the muscles of the lower abdomen. It causes pain in the lower abdomen or groin.
It sucks. Started in march but didn't take extended time off till august(all month)..I was good for 1 day of basketball. The next week I reinjured it.
