Been lifting for the last 6 months and recently started Deadlifting (around 6 weeks) and squating (3 weeks).
Last friday while doing deadlifts (110kgs - pretty heavy weight for myself) I felt like a pinch in the area marked in the picture. I completed 2 reps and it wasnt until the 3rd that I felt it, at first I thought I pinched my skin under my belt but after checking it was definately internal. Being pretty worried I stopped and checked out around the area, no lumps/buldges or anything that felt out of the oridnary, The pain went away and my friends dad whos been around weight lifting for quite a long time suggested it might of just been pinching a hip flexor or something similar and to drop the weight and see how it felt.
Dropped the weight down to 85kgs and done another 2 sets of 6 reps without any pain so I thought nothing too much of it.
Fast forward to last Tuesday and doing squats were fine, no pain at all.
This afternoon I again done deadlifts, not wanting to go to heavy because of last week I stuck to 90kgs and done 5 reps after warming up. At the end of the last rep I felt that pain again, not as intense as last time (like a pinch) but more sort of like a burn in the same area. This got me worried again so stopped.
Now again there is no lump/buldge and the area in question does not hurt when I cough or strain.
Im a furniture removalist/delivera by trade so its not like im not use to straining (although the strain is alot greater deadlifting) or lifting heavy objects.
Im pretty worried as I hope to god its not a hernia so im pretty interested to see what you guys think it could be before I consider going to the doc.
