hi. i received a injury last night while playing soccer. i was playing goalie and had the ball in my hands. i went to drop-kick the ball, much like a punter does in football, and as soon as i had kicked the ball i felt a immediate, sharp and excruciating pain in my mid-thigh and groin area. i broke my pelvis in 4 places a year ago and it was my first game back. i have been lifting, running, and stretching over the last 3 months and it had felt great except for a slight nagging pain in the front of my groin between my pubic bone and my hip. today i woke up and the pain in that area was about a 5 and constant. half way down my quad in the middle of the muscle belly was a extremely painful mound about 3 in. in diameter and raised 1/2 in. i when seated i cannot even raise my knee off the ground for more than a second. if that. i'm wondering if i have a quad tear in the muscle belly, a sports hernia in the inguinal groin area, or both. any advice or opinions are greatly appreciated. thanks
