Hmmm hopefully more rest will do this for me, i have bought some insoles as the PT suggested but still didnt help the pain, ive took up the bike until it gets better whatever it is although its not the same seeing my PT tuesday so ill get back and let you know what his next diagnoses is!!
i have exactly the same problem! i supposedly have a inflamed burtis but the pain is more at the top of my leg rather than down the side. my PT always comments on ny leg length of my left leg and how my foot is flatter yet after numerous attempts to jolt the hip/pelvis so legs are even it nevEr works i believe in Pt for back problems but as far as leg injuries Im still unsure and left with pain and no running after 2 month
I have been a keen runner for nearly three years and have completed half marathons and many 10K races. However ive never had anything more than a muscle ache for a few days.
In decemeber i stupidly ran two 9 miles a day after another with not a rest day and the next morning i woke with a awful pain which i thought was a pulled muscle. I couldnt walk on my left leg for about a week without limping as pressure hurt. so 2 weeks later i went to my sports PT as he works on lower back and after describing the symptoms he said my deep trochanteric bursa was inflammed. over christmas i attended 5 sessions with only 3 being helpful (ultrasound) while applying ice packs on my leg 2/3 times a day.
The pain still consisted after rest into january and i went to the docs to get some i think Naproxen (anti inflamms, something my PT seemed to not tell me about talking - maybe he wanted more money who knows!!). i felt slightly better and now i have just finished my anti inflamms. im due to see my PT a week tomorrow yet feel the diagnoses does not match the pain im feeling, it is no longer down the side of my leg like a bursa is meant to feel like but down the front close to the hip/groin area.
ever since i have been to PT for my lower back pain (in the side where my leg is injured) that pain was never resolved and i feel this could be a slipped disc or something pressing on my sciatica nerve??
Dont suppose anyone has experienced this? I also dont see why he hasnt referred for a x-ray/scan with the pain being consistent over a long period time as i may be dealing with a more serious injury?
Its getting me down not being able to run as i have rested for nearly 2 month now and need an alternative but too scared to ride a bike incase i increase this injury.
