Went to my physio (last Monday) for ITB soreness in right knee. He did his work and all was well. Did a slow 5k run (read 7 min K's) on Wednesday and all was well. At work Thursday and all good. Got up from my chair @ 5:00pm took three steps and then bingo extreme pain in right hip. It felt like the joint on the outside of hip however after about 5 mins pain migrated about 100mm south into muscle. I have found that so long as I keep my leg straight there is no pain. So sleeping on hip is OK - no pain in the morning. While I am sitting there is no pain. When I stand there is no pain. When I walk then the pain begins. I can run and there is no pain. After I have been moving around for about 1 to 2 hours the pain is gone - it slowly fades. Heat rub creams have no effect. Stretching doesn't help. It is this sitting down business. Am I doomed to stand the rest of my life?? I visited my physio on Friday and he is stumped. He thought it could be three or four things but I do not have the other symptomatology. Anyone got any ideas??
