    Hi @jacko3469 sounds like a trip to the doc is in order to check that out.

    Are your blood sugars running higher than usual?

    Most of the time in normal range but it sometimes seems that the pain is before I get high the next day

    Does the pain follow eating anything in particular?

    To be honest, we could speculate all day, or run a sweepstake on your issues, but the sensible thing is a trip to the Doc.

    Good luck in 3 weeks.

    I apprreciate you will be training hard, but hav you strained anything in that region? Are your waterworks, and other "outputs" OK?

    Should you develop a fever or the discomfort escalates, please contact 111 for advice.
