So if you already don't know I strained my lower back a couple weeks ago. It has kept me off the mats and sucked very much. In addition to the lower back pain, there is another pain in my left upper thigh (near my crotch). The doctor said that it was something that was connected to my lower back which is why I feel a stretching sensation in it when I lie down or sit down. The pain also extends to my left testicle (tee hee laugh all you want but its true). Its been like this for 2 weeks now and is beginning to worry the crap out of me, if any of you experienced something similar let me know how it turned out (and when the stretching sensation went away).
