Fair-warning, I am about to moan.
Nearly 4 weeks ago now I was hill-running (at night) - near the end of the run (thankfully) - my left-foot landed on a rock I didn't see. I was running down the hill, at a fast enough pace. The impact knocked me off my feet and i have not walked without-pain since. I had x-rays taken that night which showed nothing was broken.
Initially i couldn't walk without crutches, it hurt to sit, stand, lie-down or move. I can now walk, but it is painful - both at the front and rear of the hip, and i am taking pain-relief, and off work. The physio had me doing swimming (hard, painful), cycling (doable on a reclined exercise bike), and some stretching - some easy enough, some horrible.
Today he referred me for an MRI, but he isn't sure what might be wrong, he tells me i have good movement in the hip and he has ruled out the obvious apparently. It's awful not being able to run, or even walk. Pain isn't localised but is both at the front and back of the hip. Has anybody else experienced this?
Very depressing, i was training for my first triathlon this year!
