So, two months on and I still can't run! Even walking hurts a little. Its the strangest injury I've ever had. Pain moves around, sometimes its the top of hip on the outside, sometimes the groin area, sometimes the front of the thigh. Putting weight on it hurts quite a bit. If I rotate my hip I get a loud clicking from the groin area which doesn't sound too good. Going to see the gp in a week to see if I can get referred or something. Any ideas of what it could be?
thanks for the advice. I'll rest it and see how it goes. I've suffered from ITB problems before but that was a pain at the side of the knee. I guess maybe its a bit tight or something so I'll give that stretch a go, thanks Cal.
day after a long run (for me) of 8 miles I felt a sharpish pain on the outside of my left thigh, about half way between knee and hip. I've run a few times since and its got a bit worse. I now have an aching pain on inner thigh near groin too (same leg). Any thoughts on what the problem could be and how I could get rid ?
Thanks all for the help. The hydration tablets really work! No more calf cramps. Also I find that now its winter I don't really need them and I don't get the calf cramps, so it looks like the cause of my calf cramps is definitely a result of sweating away all the important minerals.
