About eight years ago I was about half an hour into a run having warmed up well in a hot country although on very hard ground. Running down a gentle hill I suddenly felt an intense pain which developed into excruciating pain after three or four more strides. I was forced to stop. The pain was on my left outer leg parallel with my knee. There was no pain in the knee itself. I have had so many different treatments and opinions about what it may be and I have not been able to run since that day for more than ten minutes on the road or twenty on a running mill. I cycle everyday and feel no pain, I walk and feel no pain. Yet even now if I press in a specific area it is very tender although there is no swelling. I have never had a muscle xray as doctors wont refer me so I don't know what damage I have. A chirporator thought the tendon that runs down the side of my leg may be in spasm and massaged me in the area. This was very painful and there was no improvement after several sessions. I have had acupuncture as well to no avail. Does anybody have any suggestions for treatment? Prior to this I never had any running pain or injuries. I would love to run again.
