Pelvic/Hip muscle/architecture question
Or really, scenario. I don't know if maybe I am way off base here or what is up, but, a question of anatomy I suppose.
So maybe 7 weeks or so ago, I was doing the Hip Abductor machine (is that what it's called when you squeeze your legs in, as opposed to opening them?)
I felt a weird pop/groin pull kind of stretching tension, and a sensation like a chord of tissue was strummed like a bow-string. It was unpleasant, and panic-inducing for a brief second, and hurt after the fact.
Didn't think anything of it because the pain subsided by the end of the set, and there was no limiting of my range of motion or anything.
So since then, I was kind of not interested in sex. Things that would normally trigger the boner response just didn't- there was a noticeable lack of the feeling that I call "the plunge" or "the descent," where you feel your heart and stomach just kinda bottom into your balls, and then they get all warm and tingly. That just wasn't happening.
I thought I was depressed, thought I must just be burned out of getting the same signals from the wife for so long, all kinds of suspicions about where that feeling went off to and why.
Then last week, I'm doing the same exercise, and I felt a similar feeling, except, when the bow-string strumming feeling occured, there was a popping sensation/internal sound impression, followed by a flood of relief, like some constant source of pressure was lifted and removed. Just standing up after that set, my whole situation felt different and warm and normal again- I didn't even connect the weeks of sexual dysfunction with that exercise injury until that set, when things seemed to click back into place and realign. But as soon as i stood up I felt like, "ah-ha! I am returned!"
And was in fact- all's well again.
So what the hell was that about?
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
