Thanks Scott, I have really focused on trying to stretch out the quads last couple of days and it seems to make a bit of difference.

Good call! I've never done pilates. It's so frustrating. Running is such a part of who I am and my life, it just feels very weird not to be running at the moment, I guess I want a quick fix, but realise that's not going to happen.

Thanks for all the replies everyone Really appreciate it.

Yes I have been doing stretches every day and following what the physio(s) have suggested. Foam rollering, the specific exercises (quads, glutes etc). Just thought there would be improvement in 6 weeks!

Yes I have had a sports massage, although it wasn't that intense Also had the physio release the hip and try to release the flexors a bit. Nothing seems to be really helping Maybe I need more.

Compeed Plaster - Is this normal?

Keep it clean/put antiseptic if it's burst or go see chiropodist. I had burst blisters that got infected in the summer and it was pretty painful and horrible! Chiropodist took care of it in the end but I did end up needed anti-biotics. Iodine is good

Just wondering if anyone has ever experienced anything similar. More for support I know I need to go back to the doctor! For the past 6 weeks, I have been suffering from hip flexor/crease of thigh pain, pain lower in the thigh, pain in the hip and at times the glute!

I have had x-rays in the pelvis and femur, which came back all clear (although I do really know this is often inconclusive. I did have the x-rays a few weeks after I started getting the pain).

My hip feels tightish. Pain is like a burning in the crease of my thigh when I'm sat down. If I try and run or do a single leg squat, I can feel pain in the hip flexor and also in the thigh (this is not a burning). Sometimes the thigh just aches. Sometimes the hip aches. Sometimes the burning radiates to my back.

The best areas I can describe are illiopsas ie:

But also:

I have seen several physios, osteo, doctors but nothing has ever been properly diagnosed! I realise I may need an MRI and I am going to go back to the dr, but I fear FAI or indeed a stress somewhere even though all the x-rays came back ok. Driving me insane not having a proper diagnosis.

Stress fracture???

I had a stress fracture of the metatarsal a few years ago. It showed up on x-ray but I was hobbling around for weeks (think over 2 months) before I had the x-ray and it was actually diagnosed. Just to warn you, as the above poster says, stress fractures often don't show up on x-rays or until a good few weeks into it anyway.

The pain started not too bad and just got worse and worse - I tried to run on it a few times but got too bad; walking became difficult. The worst of it the sharp pain felt like someone had put an old fashioned egg whisk into my foot and was churning it! It was quite localised. Also had numbness, and pain at rest too. Pain killers never took anything off it, nor ice. There was mild redness on the top of the foot (it was a tiny bit inflamed). I went back and forth to the Drs for weeks before I took myself to A&E!

Problem with stress fractures is everyone experiences it differently. Don't panic but I would head back to GP.

suggestions for GPS running watch

I just got the garmin forerunner 10. I was using the 305 for years but it was just way too big & was getting awful at locking onto the satellite. The 10 I love already, only thing it doesn't show pace on same screen (you have to press a button) but I've not found this a problem & I've set the virtual partner. It's on offer on Amazon for about ??50 at the moment which is good value.
