There is something wrong with it to the point where I have a good amount of lower back and hip pain, and it wraps around my leg causing quad pain clear down to my knee. I have NO idea what it is. I've tried resting, stretching, foam rolling, ibuprofen, hot tubbing, yoga, massages, etc. and I just can't find relief. I didn't run yesterday because it was bothering me enough that I thought I should probably rest it another day. Except I woke up this morning and it's worse than it was yesterday. What the heck is going on?
Yesterday I saw the following deal on Living Social:
I am very hopeful that the people at this Institute will be able to see what is causing the issue and fix it through their fancy massage techniques. I think my right hip is slightly out of place. It almost feels like someone needs to hook me up to one of those stretching torture devices so that my bones/muscles are forced back into the right position. At this point I am desperate! It's been hurting for nearly 2 weeks and isn't improving. That has me super nervous, especially since I have a half marathon in 8 days(!!).
So...I've decided that I am just going to have to continue running through the pain. I can't miss anymore runs, and the back pain seems to be unrelated to the running as it is getting worse even with rest. I will run 4ish miles tonight and hopefully it will feel okay. I'll be listening to my body during the run and stopping if I think it is causing harm.
To all you runners out there--any idea what might be causing my problem?
