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!
