Reply To: Strange new finding…
In my case, I have two thoughts:
1. I recall hurting my sacral region about a year ago from deadlifting with too rounded of a back so I have some residual pain in my back, unrelated to the hernia.
1b. The back injury impacted my lifting form, exacerbating some kind of preexisting weakness, causing the hernia to present itself.
2. Both the current chronic back pain and the hernia (if either a direct or “pre-hernia” condition) are stemming from one underlying issue such as lifting heavy weights with an undiagnosed leg length discrepancy.
I realize that, if this is an indirect hernia (statistically and demographically most likely), then everything is probably coincidental.
