Psoas muscle sprain?: If all the workup you mentioned was negative, and they were done with the appropriate contrast, you may have a psoas muscle sprain. Consider an osteopathic and/or chiropractic evaluation. Also may be scarring/ recurrence from/of your old hernia repair, which will not show up on imaging.

Sports hernia: A fairly unrecognized cause of groin pain in athletic individuals is a sports hernia, also known as athletic pubalgia. This involves a partial tear of the end of the abdominal muscles (rectus femoris), conjoined tendon, transversalis fascia, etc. A sports hernia is clinical diagnosis, and often, no tests demonstrate it. Many also have advanced tendonitis of the adductors (groin tendons) as well.
