Hi , I have had pain / tightness in my right hip muscle / glute area for 3 yrs and also very tight groin, stretching them regularly I was still able to play Squash. I put it down to 3 matches a week and allot of lunging. In Jan 2008 I had a back spasm, afterwards it left a sharp pain in the upper right sacral illiac area, this would hurt if walking and worsened on uneven ground. The pain worsened and became very lumber pain orientated , where a bony lump has formed at the pain site on the illiac crest ( where illio lumbar ligiament and spainae irector attachments are ) I have seen Physio and had MRIs that show a small bulge on the L5S1 disc. I had a nerve root block that had no effect - the Dr believes the disc is not the problem ( Sciatica is not present). Having returned to physio Dec 08 it was identified that the Right Glute had stopped activating, and i have a tight groin, Stretches and glute exercise have proved helpful - however the pain is still present, I am almost pain free in the morning and once I start activity / household chores I can feel the muscles start to ache and slowly increase into pain over a period, It feels like there is overloading on the muscle. I suspect the hip / glute are the problem but I cant seem to find a fix.
