Whenever I am deadlifting or squatting and I strain even just a tiny bit I get a sharp/stinging pain in an area approximately between the left side of my groin and bellybutton level. I'm not sure if it could be like the start of a hernia or what. This is really the only time I feel it and I play several sports and don't have a problem at all normally but it always hurts when either deadlifting or squatting even with amounts of weight that aren't that large. The pain is very bearable if I know it is doing no long term damage but it is causing me to stay away from those two exercises as I'm not sure what it could be. I am planning on talking to a physician about it soon but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what it might be?

Thanks for any help you can offer
