Hi all, just wondered if any of you have experienced anything like this and can offer a bit of advice? I've had a really painful hip/thigh for the past few weeks. At first I kept running through it, thinking it would go away, but it got worse, to the point where it hurts first thing in the morning as soon as I get up and is painful when I walk. I stopped running just over a week ago, thinking it would improve with rest, but it hasn't got better. It seemed to be more the hip than the thigh at first and now it seems to be more thigh than hip. Painful right over the front of it and down both sides. I think I had overdone it as I upped my distance from 5 km to 8 km all of a sudden and was having less rest days (graduated in March). I have learned my lesson, but am DESPERATE to run again asap!!! If anyone has any ideas of what the problem might be or what I should do, I'd be grateful for any tips. Very fed up not to be out there!
