While running in a 5 mile race last week, I started to feel what I thought was a stitch coming on. Realised it was lower down than a normal stitch but still that was the overall feeling. I kept going, finished the race, went home, and it's been bloody sore ever since. But I'm not sure exactly what it is that's sore. I can't tell if it's a pulled muscle or joint pain or deeper in the bone. Hoping someone might be able to help.
So... It's not sore when I'm sitting, but when I stand, straightening up is very painful. The pain is on my side, pretty much where my hip bone sticks out. Once I'm standing I can lift my leg in front of me, behind me or out to the side without any pain at all. If I try to run, I get a sharp stabbing pain that feels like it's inside my hip, and if I prod about, actually pushing on my hip bone hurts. Also feels like the muscle just below it and slightly to the rear is sore, but like I say, I'm not sure...
It doesn't feel like any pulled muscle I've had before, which is worrying me a bit. Also, looking at anatomy diagrams, I can't even figure out what muscle it could be. I've got a physio appointment later this week, but till then, does anyone have any idea what I've done to myself?
