..and the bad news: I am having major left, hip pain. Bone, not muscle. A dull ache and throbbing? Please tell me this MIGHT be normal? Please? I have great running shoes, was fitted for them and they've worked great. Had some sore muscle issues in the past, but nothing like this. It hurts when I run, walk, stand too long, bend, and especially when I'm lying in bed. ?? Hope this is ringing a bell for some of you runners' out there?
With my education in Exercise Phys, you'd think I'd have ALL of the answers but I have found myself totally clueless with this pain. I have taken the past few days off from exercise completely, just stretching and some core work. That's it and I'm still having the pain :( I have told myself that I will lay off running a few more days and see how it feels, if I'm still in pain I'm afraid a doctor visit might be in my near future? YIKES.
How do you stay motivated when an injury sets you back?
