Default Sports Hernia?Pain in lower right stomach for a RHBH when breathing deep, sneezing...

I'm only 30 and feel like an old fart for posting this.

But I'm starting to have mild pressure/pain when I take a deep breath or sometimes when I sneeze, and it happened after a year of DG.
It's definitely in my lower right stomach area, right above the hip.

I mostly RHBH, and my form is not the cleanest, but I wasn't expecting this. I try to follow through but doesn't always happen. I even tried to stop any "twisting" motion and rely on body pivot/weight shift instead.

I don't have any other symptoms, so I don't think it's appendicitis or anything crazy, but I've heard this can be "Sports Hernia", which is common in twisting sports, like tennis, hockey, and well....disc golf.

Anyone have this type of pain before? It's not major pain, but definitely something going on, and odd. I'm afraid to even disc golf now, since I hear this can develop into something very serious/life threatening...

thanks

A hernia can be a serious problem if not dealt with or it can be just a minor inconvenience depending on the location and severity. Either way you should go to a doctor and get it checked out.

If the pain is above the belly button, it's more likely an oblique strain. I tried to play through an oblique strain and then tore it and fractured ribs in the process.

wow, that's crazy. yeah I think it is just above the belly button.

So...what would you recommend at this point? Just stop? Stretch the area? Ice? Slowly strengthen the abs/oblique?

The advice is still the same. See a doctor.

Doctor can only diagnose a problem, that's it.

I know this is from Disc Golfing. I'm otherwise in perfect health.

Doctors are the last to know about strengthening exercises or non-surgical solutions.

Basically I'd rest until it feels better(2-4 weeks maybe), if it doesn't get better see a quack. Trying to follow through and being off balance might be the problem. The disc should pull you into the follow through if you are in balance.

yea I think you're right. Balance is a big issue. I still need to learn proper technique for drives/midrange. Even after watching all these videos, it's hard.

During your reach back, are your hips/abs twisting at all? I'm thinking about eliminating any twist and just doing a back to forward shift, then pivot on my heel and follow through.

If its a hernia the only solution is surgery.
