Can You Help Diagnose My leg/hip (?) injury
I’m an active older person who does some running, tennis (much), cycling (incl ‘spinning’) & golf. Came up with a cramp-like condition in back of left leg (hamstring-like) during mile 2 of a 10K six weeks ago (running very slowly) which stayed with me for rest of the 10K and since then. While there is definitely sensation in the ‘ham’ sometimes along whole length much of the problem seems centered up in the area where femur attaches to the pelvis (more in the back than to the side). Notably (even before this occured) I’ve had discomfort in the left buttocks area and down the leg while driving my car. Not sure what it is; have used RICE to come degree, always apply heat before my doubles tennis events (2/wk; very “tame” old men!). Have hoped it’s just heal itself … but to no avail as yet. Kind of hard to ‘dip’ down low where you bend knees a lot. Any experiences or advice greatly appreciated.
