I have been a keen runner for nearly three years and have completed half marathons and many 10K races. However ive never had anything more than a muscle ache for a few days.
In decemeber i stupidly ran two 9 miles a day after another with not a rest day and the next morning i woke with a awful pain which i thought was a pulled muscle. I couldnt walk on my left leg for about a week without limping as pressure hurt. so 2 weeks later i went to my sports PT as he works on lower back and after describing the symptoms he said my deep trochanteric bursa was inflammed. over christmas i attended 5 sessions with only 3 being helpful (ultrasound) while applying ice packs on my leg 2/3 times a day.
The pain still consisted after rest into january and i went to the docs to get some i think Naproxen (anti inflamms, something my PT seemed to not tell me about talking - maybe he wanted more money who knows!!). i felt slightly better and now i have just finished my anti inflamms. im due to see my PT a week tomorrow yet feel the diagnoses does not match the pain im feeling, it is no longer down the side of my leg like a bursa is meant to feel like but down the front close to the hip/groin area.
ever since i have been to PT for my lower back pain (in the side where my leg is injured) that pain was never resolved and i feel this could be a slipped disc or something pressing on my sciatica nerve??
Dont suppose anyone has experienced this? I also dont see why he hasnt referred for a x-ray/scan with the pain being consistent over a long period time as i may be dealing with a more serious injury?
Its getting me down not being able to run as i have rested for nearly 2 month now and need an alternative but too scared to ride a bike incase i increase this injury.
Any help will be great!
