You can get back to running/planks/yoga once the pain subsides.
Lifting weights may be avoided if it indeed is a hernia.
Pain is not a common early sign in a hernia. What we look for is called a "cough impulse". You can consult a General surgeon if symptoms persist.
The doc I visited did performed "Cough impulse" test. He neither ruled out nor confirmed, but advised me to avoid everything that puts pressure on my abdomen. I presume it could be the starting stage

Yes, I did increase the intensity of the exercise considerably..speed of running on the treadmill recently. Just 2-3 days into it & the problem of pain in the groin area. I see this could be one of the possibilities. I have stopped doing everything that puts pressure on the abdomen & see how it turns out after a week or so.

My 11 year old son has this recurring problem of inflammation and cracks in both the corners of lips. He applies Boroline and it tends to subside but comes back again.
His water intake is adequate but his salt intake is also more. Could this be a cause?

What is the solution? Is there any home remedy?

If it is a recurrent problem, you should consult a paediatrician.

Medically, we would call it "Angular cheilitis". Commonly dryness, especially in winter can cause it.
But if it is recurrent, there could be nutritional(vitamin deficiencies) or infections (fungal/bacterial). Nothing to worry though. A consult with the paediatrician should solve the problem.

There is a recommendation from AYUSH ministry in this link.

What else can we do?
I am not a doctor, but from what i gather, Vitamin D plays an important role in building immunity against viral illnesses, like Covid.

So firstly it is important to get your Vitamin D levels checked, and if not sufficient, either take suppliments or if its borderline, get plenty of sunshine.

Other Vitamin that helps immunity is Vitamin C. Again you can take supplements, but its advisable to get it from food sources if possible. So plenty of fruits and vegetables should do the trick. In India we are blessed to have the Amla "Indian Gooseberry" which can be taken in either raw form ( a bit of a challenge) or powdered form (much more palatable). Its a powerhouse of Vitamin C and antioxidants.

Hope that helps.

Did your doctor mention anything about ultrasound sonography? Rather than staying in uncertainty, I think you should do ultrasound which will clarify what exactly it is.

Yes, Vitamin-D plays a very important role in building immunity against Covid-19. Doc advised to take Drise tablet (60000 IU) one day in a week for four weeks (A total of 4 tablets only) with a daily dose of Becosule tablet(contains vitamin B complex and Vit C). At this juncture, it is very difficult to check if one has the right amount of Vitamin-D, hence its suggested to take the supplement & its harmless even if one has sufficient quantity already available.

Thanks. No he didn't. It makes sense to get the complete picture & act with certainty.

I have 3-4 mm gap between the two upper incisor teeth, a condition which I came to know is called Midline Diastema. My teeth have been this way since childhood, and I never bothered to get them corrected since there were no functional inconveniences due to this. I have received a lot considerate comments from people in my circle to get it corrected, and I think it's time I do something about this for good.

I would like to opt for a permanent solution even if it takes time and demands extra care and precautions, rather than opting for temporary cosmetic additions like Veneers. Is this condition curable by orthodontics using braces? I'm planning to consult a dentist soon, and would like to know about possible options from fellow BHPians in this field.

Thanks in advance.

The pain has completely gone. Slowly tried certain poses which caused the pain earlier & noticed it's very much comfortable now. So it's most likely due to injury caused by increasing the intensity of the exercise. Decided not to risk with high intensity exercise as I move forward. Thanks
