I'm 50 years old. I'd always practiced sports, usually aerobics and weights at the gym. About 2 months ago I walked 2 blocks and when running those 2 blocks back I felt a sharp pain on my right buttock going down my hamstring. I didn't stop. Next day I was limping and the pain was very intense. I didn't rest but I took Ibuprofen and I didn't do any exercise for like 3 weeks.
I used hot packs, cold packs, rest with legs elevated, etc. I also had a cycle with cortisone (the usual pack where you take 6 the first day, then 5, etc). Nothing really helped. The pain in my right groin is not a 9 but certainly more than a 6. It's very confusing to determine from where does the pain comes. Sometimes it hurts when I touch the area where the leg meets the pelvic toward the back but sometimes it doesn't hurt. It seems like the lesion, if any, is deep. Some symptoms reminds me to a piriformis issue.
A have been checking different forums but usually for them this pain didn't happen after exercising. I'm doing some stretching exercises directed to the piriformis area but the pain is still there.
Do you have any advise, beside going to the Dr, where I had been too?
