Hi Randy,
Just an update. My injury seems to be getting quite a bit better with rest. Last week I decided to meet with my workout partners to advise them that I'd be taking one full week of rest out of the gym. By rest I mean rest. I figured if I gave it one week and went back to do mild protected movements, I'd have at least an inclination as to whether rest will do anything to solve this. My symptoms have disappeared for now but the big test will be on Thursday when I'm back in the gym to try a few things out. I have a feeling this thing might be happening to a number of athletes and is unfortunately not being diagnosed properly. On the bright side, keep in mind this isn't actually a hernia but rather a strain in the same area. Hernia's always require surgery as far as I know. We may be able to get off the hook with rest.
