Groin Strain? or not? Help!

 

I presently havepain on the inside of my upper leg, from inner thigh nearly to my knee. Every time I heel strike (even when not running) my leg feels like it has a metal rod in that area instead of normal fluid muscle and ligament/tendons. I called my Physical Therapist and he said (over the phone) it sounded like a groin strain / groin pull, also called an adductor strain. 

 

 

I've been reading EVERYTHING about "groin strains" on the internet and

it seems like these "adductor strains/pulls" vary SO much between

individuals! Last year I had groin pain for 9 months before one doctor FINALLY

thought it might be a torn labrum. Correct! I finally had that fixed in

February and worked my way back up to 68 miles one week.... only to now

be sidelined with what COULD be a groin strain.  I am wondering if

anyone else has had the sensation of having a tight rod from groin to

knee on the inner thigh? I literally can't get this thing to "warm up"

or loosen until like 10 miles.... Although I trust my physical therapist, he is not a doctor and I see SO many variations of pain associated with that name! I don't want to

have to go through another 9 months without a correct diagnosis. I trust other runners above all else, CAN ANYONE HELP?

 

 

Thanks beforehand for any thoughts or help!
