Why does my groin pop.  When i  do. Floor exercises my groin pops..?

Not sure: I've never had anyone complain of groin popping. Hips or knees may pop. Ligaments or tendons may pop or snap. Let me tell you that popping/snapping is not a specific symptom that indicates where the problem is or what it is. It is audible and definitely draws attention, but in the absence of other symptoms, namely pain, limitation in the range of motion, it may be nothing to worry about. ...Read more

Push it back: You have a defect in the fibromuscular wall of your abdominal cavity. Your intestine is pushing its way into the opening and you can push it back inside. Eventually you will need this fixed as there is a small risk of strangulation or twisting of the intestine doing this. Surgery will close the defect and prevent the protrusion. ...Read more

Yes: You may benefit from seeing an osteopathic physician for consult. S/he can do a full osteopathic examination, and do a musculoskeletal examination of your knees and lower extremities are doing, and how stable your knee is in relation to your hips, pelvis, and lower back. The problem may be affecting your knees secondarily from somewhere else. Time to get relief, and get treated. ...Read more

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts. They enlarge in response to the inflammation they create when they react. They shrink when all is well. ...Read more

Likely no problem.: You might have som crepitus, or crackling in your hip joint from joint ends grinding together. This can be a sign of arthritis, especially if you are older or did a lot with your joints, i would watch for arthritis in the future if i were you, but right now it is likely due to the unusual thing you are doing with your leg(s). Try not to get into these kinds of habits. ...Read more
