sore hip

I am due to run gnr this weekend however since last week I have experienced pain in my left hip, burning sensation even hurts lying on that side. I rested and haven't run over the weekend now walking with a limp and the pain is not subsiding. my last run was only 3 miles not exactly over exerting myself so dunno where this has come from any advice please

Consult a professional, asap. Maybe something can be done, but running in that condition sounds unwise to me.

Hope you get sorted.

Get it checked out... Not sure how long you have been running, but hope you have not been running through pain..:(

I am assuming you are an experienced runner... so you will know that this needs sorting soon:)

They may have... but as we are not experts, it is probably sensible to get it checked:)

I have also been suffering with a sore left hip off and on for about a year. It flares up when I extend my distance. After a rest for a couple if weeks it seems to ease off, but I'm not happy about having to keep taking time off on the IC! It is sore when walking too. I do lots of stretches, but maybe I need to keep to shorter distances or try softer surfaces or a treadmill.
