I had epididymitis on my left "T"only a few weeks ago, went to the doc, got my medications, feel way better, and besides these last two days (6th and 7th) I hadn't worked out for 3+ weeks. I bring this up because before my first day back working out I noticed maybe a small pinch type feeling in my lower right abdoman/ upper upper right pelvic area. This feeling came and went quickly and rarely up to this point. Part of me thinks I am just imagining it more and more as I get more worried, but another part of thinks it could possibly be the building up of a hernia (Is this possible?). I bend, twist parts of my body to see if I feel pain, but I only really notice an ache of some sort as I stand up for a little bit or sit in an uncomfortable position. Also when I bend and twist I don't believe I feel anything intruding through my body and there isn't anything notable that can be pushed or "popped" back in, Though, part of me thinks I'm so stuck on thinking that I'm going to find this hernia that I disregard the notion of there being a hernia and do this check really quick. I plan on seeing the doc if this doesn't get better within the next day, but I'm hoping someone can help me here so I can save myself the ride.
My dad told me it could be gas, but I laughed my way out of the room when he told me that even though I pray that it's maybe something as simple as that.
Your groin pain could be caused by a strain/ijhury of the supportive tissues in this area, or by a small groin hernia, or by other causes as well. In the absence of an obvious bulge to suggest the diagnosis of an inguinal hernia, a visit to your doctor for an examination will be necessary to confirm or rule-out the presence of a hernia (or other abnormality).
