Sorry to hear about your injury, but at least you have a diagnosis you can work with. There is a thread for FAI (femoroacetabular impingement) with others who have had something similar, although it's not posted on very often at the minute. I've had keyhole surgery on both hips for everything you mentioned. I think I had a 'bony' lesion, rather than a 'body' lesion - could it be that instead? Good luck on the road to recovery.
Megzie1234 - you've described my symptoms almost exactly. I've had them since late October, although the main site of discomfort changes. I also have the ache further up the leg, but to a lesser degree. I've just made a doctors' appointment to see if I can get some sort of scan. I thought initially that it was a calf tear, then PF, then achilles tendonitis, then a stress fracture in the shin. Then I looked up PTT and it seems to fit with an ache in all of those areas.
The MRI should give valuable info. Please come back and update with your results and progress.
Hi Andy - did you get a place for this? I have one that I will use if I have to...but I haven't been doing the training for it. If you want to look into a transfer, let me know! (same goes for anyone else reading this who might like the place)
Having really enjoyed the Sleaford 10k in the summer, I was looking forward to racing this. However, I've been injured since late October. Been doing some runs recently, but not long enough or often enough to do it 'well'. I want the t-shirt, though!! I'm hoping that some of my former fitness carries me round, unless someone who hasn't entered yet spots this and fancies making some sort of offer before the closing date
Would you advise multi-terrain or road shoes, Matthew Lennard?
Sorry to hear of your groin/hip/ back/ back trouble. Is there any chance of you pushing the GP for an MRI (with dye injection, perhaps) on your affected side? I had hip trouble for over 2 years and it also gave me back/ glute pain. My condition was diagnosed as femoroacetabular impingement with a tear in the labrum. Your injury may not be anything like this, but your description of the 90 degree/ twist thing sounds like one of the tests they did on me. My problem was misdiagnosed by a number of different medical experts, but they did take me seriously and put me on the waiting list for an MRI very quickly.
I hope you find out what's wrong soon and get some help to return to pain-free exercise.
