I have had chronic hip/ buttock/ lower back "pain" for the last 10 months. I have quoted pain because it is not debilitating. I still have full function of my right leg however it feels as though all of the muscles from the bottom of my butt to the SI joint are constricted. At times even my back muscles (on the right side) feel tight. If I do go for a run my right hip will physically raise to a higher position and my muscles will feel worse. I check hip heights before and after to be certain, after the run it becomes visually noticable. The V at the lower abdomen is more prominent on the right and is higher than the left. I have had MRIs of the lumbar spine, pelvis, and right hip (with dye). the only feedback was a "possible" labrum tear on the right side. my symptoms do not match this at all though and i am skeptical of surgery at this point. i am curious if anyone has had a similar issue and or could give me an accurate description of their labrum tear symptoms. since the issue worsens with running i have been force ld to take a dreaded break. any info that might get me back on the road would be greatly appreciated.
