Hi, if anyone can help, I’ll be eternally grateful. Since summertime last year, following a hip flexor muscle injury, I’ve had almost chronic pain where the top of the glutes join the lower back. If I stop cycling for a week, the pain subsides. The minute I’m back on the bike, it comes back. And if I stand or walk a lot during the day, there's no pain. It just returns when cycling or lifting/bending over e.g. gardening. The pain isn’t acute, probably 2 out of 10, just a chronic dull ache, which can move around from the top of my glutes all the way to my hip. It's a bit random. I also have a strange numb patch on the outside of my left thigh, and when I do lunges to stretch the hip flexors, I feel a shooting pain down the side of the same left leg. I’ve tried adjusting (lowering) the seat, but the pain is still there when cycling. In fact, I have two road bikes, and the bike with the more aggressive setup actually feels a tad better (maybe it’s because it’s lighter ?). I went to an osteopath who ‘cracked’ me a couple of times, but it only offered temporary relief. I then went to a private physio who gave my lunges to do. Again, temporary relief of hip stiffness, but no long term solution. The latest NHS physio, who I saw 2 weeks ago, said it’s because my core muscles and glutes need strengthening, which will take the load off the hip flexors and back. Since then I’ve been religiously doing all manner of strengthening exercises. It may be my imagination but things do feel slightly better 2 weeks later. Has anyone had anything similar? And what was the diagnosis or solution? (FYI I’m 48, I cycle commute on a road bike nearly every weekday, and I run around 10k most weekends, I'm 6'1 and weigh 79kg).
