I'm 20yr's old, Caucasian male, good health, haven't been sick for a long time *touchwood*. Although I have been binge drinking for the past half year (note: I've quit that nasty stuff now.)
I'll start with saying that my left leg is slightly shorter than my right and so about two months ago I used a few innersoles to lift up the height of my left leg but looking back I may have actually made the left higher than the right, causing another imbalance.
Ever since I made the change I've been going for daily hour walks for exercise and looking back in hindsight, I do remember sorta feeling that when I was walking there was more force put on the left side of the hip area.
Anyway, four days ago I started getting a pain around my groin where the leg is, right in the block hole.. I think it might be some sort of muscle injury but I'm not sure.
It actually started hurting the morning of the day I stopped drinking, I was still hungover, that was the end of 6 nights straight of drinking heavily, could it be withdrawal symptoms of weak muscles?
I don't actually feel any pain in my testicles, I don't have trouble urinating, all that is normal, sexual function is normal..
But with a pain near that area, I'm kinda worried...
I'll add a few things that may be useful:
6 months ago I got a pain in thumb which is actually an RSI (repetative strain injury), I've still got the pain 6months on to this day. Note: This began also during a long two week binge in which I'd play computer games in a cold airconditioned room which is what i think caused the thumb to screw up... The combination of dehydrated weak muscles, cold temperature, and bad mouse grip probably caused it, that's what I think.
Because of my leg imbalance I've suffered from sore lower back/knee troubles in the past.
Please help me.
(before, you tell me that my drinking is stupid, yes i already know... I'm 4days sober now, this whole fiasco has scared me. I keep thinking, what if it's cancer, what if I'm going to die. :(
Could it be cancer?
