I am thinking of doing a cycle round Scotland and thinking of perhaps getting a new bike. I have a road bike (Merida) and a rather heavy hybrid (giant). I guess I am looking for the comfort/sturdiness of the hybrid but the lightness of a road bike. any suggestions?
Sticky, I echo what Trackie says, if it doesn't clear up try and go for MRI to rule out any joint problems. Having suffered with piriformis problems for months - physio and massage only temporarily helping finally went to Dr. Have to say they were brilliant. Got an immediate referral to Oxford Sports Clinic, full blood tests, MRI and fluroscopy injection (which I didn't have in the end), + physio referral.
Pilates stretching also seems to help. Good luck - not good to be in pain!
