Gluteal strain

Been somewhere between aching and sharp pain for 5 days. Cant seem to find any sort of training that doesn't make it worse (swimming, conditioning avoiding direct impact on the area). I'm pretty sure the only advice is to stop doing all training altogther until it is completely better and online advice suggests two weeks. Anyone done this? Feeling very depressed. Would love to be able to do some form of cross training at least.

Have you had a proper diagnosis?  If not then it might be worth getting a sports massage.  I sometimes get problems in that sort of area and it is just tight muscles rather than a strain, and is cured with massage and the right stretches within a couple of days.

thank you. have an unrelated referal to pure sports medicine so will look into a sports massage with them.
