It's in the groin
I finally seem free of OP!!!!!!
avoided running for 18 month, kept my fitness through cycling and racing mountain bikes, along with pilates.
I now do 2 x 6 miles runs/week so far so good, I've been running again for 2 months pain free, may increase mileage next year......happy days
Oh my, I think I might finally have found a possible explanation for the groin pain that has caused me running problems on and off since 2010. Initially noticed it first after runs over 8 miles. Over the last year or so however I'm in such pain after even a short run that I've all but give up. Physio suspected hairline pelvic fracture but nothing seen on xray. Nothing else suggested other than "something muscular" and stretching exercises which have changed nothing. I suspect whatever it is happened as result of childbirth in 2007. Does this sound like a candidate??
I self diagnosed I have this after googling all my symptoms and reading up on various conditions. My GP agreed and referred me to NHS physio which I've been doing for the last couple of months. They've said tendinopathy but I feel they are clutching at straws. I have been given strengthening exercises but have no improvement whatsoever. Tried a road run the other day and was in pain after 1 mile. I thought after a 5 month rest period I could at least run a short distance but it wasn't to be. Totally fed up and getting desperate now. Should I just give it more time?
