Looking to see if any of you have relevant knowledge or experience to do with my problem as I sooooooo want to be able to run again.
In March I developed an instability injury whilst running in snow: trying too hard to stay up and keep going, my right hamstring "cracked" and suddenly I fell sharp pain at the top near the bottom (right leg).
After a bit of resting it almost went away until trying a physio exercise (badly clearly) woke this up again a month later. Since then it has been building up. I tried 2 full weeks of rest, it made no difference.
My phyio(s) think that I have very complicated legs but in any case this one seems to be turning into what, I have been told, is tendinopathy. Typical symptom: sore when I start running (top of right hamstring near buttock), then it eases off then it comes back with a vengeance and pulls on all the other muscles in the leg until the whole tight is useless, buttock not happy, calf, achilles heel not happy... and I limp home.
Up till now I have been able to cycle (thankfully) but can not run more than 45/50mns and can not go fast. Recently I tried stretching my hamstring half way through a run and it has allowed me to finish my 45 mns run without limping and at time go up to 50mns.
Last night it kicked in at the end of a strong spin session and it has been uncomfortable ever since. I know if I run tonight I will be really bad. Physio is trying to organise a joint appointment with a chiro so that they can put their heads together.
The fact that it kick in during spin is a further worry as usually it stays clear of cycling activities. Had to bin any racing this year and I am getting really desperate to find something I could do to help.... can not face not being able to run nor cycle.
Physio has mentioned cortison injection as last resort but I think that will put me out of action (inc cycling) for at least 4 weeks.
Sorry about the long story but there is a lot of knowledge and injuries experience on this forum so I thought that some people might have relevant guidance?
