i have been doing squats, deadlifts, cleans, and snatches for about a year. i have always been very careful of keeping good form. recently during these excercises i have been getting a sharp burning pain in my lower abdomen below my belly button and to the left. the pain lasts for about 5 minutes and it is always on the first or second rep of the first set forcing me away from all of these excercises that i love so. it first happened about a week ago and every time i try to lift since.
first, this sounds like a developing hernia right?
second, does anyone know how i should nurse it and how long it may take to heal?
i would really appreciate any help you can give, as i really dont want to end up in the hospital with a hernia.
