Hi all, I need some help with pain relief. I have a suspected bilateral inguinal hernia still to be confirmed next week with an ultrasound. It's now got to a stage where it is just to painful to run. I had to stop after 8 miles this morning as the pain in my groin was so intense. I've tried the normal route of painkillers but nothing seems to help. Is there any other treatment I can try other than to stop running. I am running for a charity at the VLM so I am still trying all routes to get there. If I continue to train will I encounter any long term consequences from this. Any help would be greatly appreciated......
If you have severe pain in your groin, regardless of cause, I'd say that pretty much precludes most other forms of cross training.
I think you'll just have to wait for a proper diagnosis and accept that there's a chance you might not make to to the start line this year.
I'm sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear.
