Fed up with medics maybe someone can help.
I am 45 and have stepped up training significantly of late
I have pain a few hours after each run which lasts for a few days around my hip and upper thigh. It feels deep sometimes and others not. It is incredibly painful getting going on a run but 3 miles in there is no issue and pain subsides.
Interestingly at the end of a long run I am pain free for a few hours and think its cured.
The leg hang test does not cause pain. Physio said ITB and I have been foaming this to death and continuing running. Doesn't work and the leg is getting worse between runs.
It doesn't feel muscular. It feels like my thigh bone. I know that may count for little. It is hard to make it painful by stretches and massage intact impossible. It's related to really pushing forward in my running action and if I force my leg down onto the ground with a straight leg then release it I can feel pain up my thigh. Hopping or one leg squat will hurt but not when squatting but when I relax.
Anyone relate to this and let me know what could be. I am inclined to assume stress fracture and rest 4 weeks rather than pay for inconclusive tests.
