Hi there. I havent reported for a while, and I thought I would.
I have isolated my pain to be in the region of the sacral triagle part of my spine, by looking at diagrams on the internet. When I talk of feeling like my hip is dislocated, I dont mean from my thigh bone to the hip socket, I mean from this sacral area with whatever holds or attaches the spine to the hip area. That is where the pain is located. The rest of the pain I feel is a very stiff weak feeling also in that area, from hip to hip across this sacral devide.
I cant lay on my back and pull my knees to my chest, it gives me acute pain in the region of what I feel is dislocated but also the really stiff feeling, kinda like it is pulling.
Anyway, I noticed this while on my treadmill this am. I can jog at 4mph at 0% incline and it hurts, same for walking at 3-3.5mph. However, when I change the incline slowly up to 6%, the higher I get to 6% the less pain I have. In fact when I get to 6, it doesnt hurt although I am aware of the feeling still.
I cant find any thing that would cause this issue for me. I would think if I tore something, the pain would always be there. I do have days where I have little to no pain, it is just very short lived. What do you think about this? And what should I do to stregthen this area. Can you also direct me to a site with what might cause this sort of thing? I think the whole sciatic thing was just a by product of all of this. I do have times where I feel the sciatic nerve, but on my right leg instead of the left, where it started. I get little zings on the inside of my right thigh and also on my knee cap. I have been doing the core challenge from vibrantvegan.com still, a bit modified though, and also major core stuff like standard, rt, lt and reverse crunches. Lying on my belly on the ball and doing reverse situps for my low back, also modified. Also doing planks either with my elbows on the ball or my thighs on the ball and my hands on the floor.
Oh and I forgot one other thing. When I do the right side crunch for the love handle region, anything with my right leg in fact, I get a distinct pop, although I get no relief from this, it is more like a click. I feel that click in the one section of the sacral joint into the hip area. I also get it when I stand up and bring my right knee and have it meet my right elbow, for a warm up. It doesnt hurt however, just clicks.
Thank you for your time.
Thanks for the update and I am sorry to see you continue to experience discomfort.
Scar tissue can seem dormant (no pain) until pushed to a point where its less flexible nature causes discomfort.
Your positioning describes consistency with the shortening of the muscles in your back from the treadmill training, if I recall correctly, that backfired a bit during your 5K event.
This ongoing problem may well warrant being addressed by an orthopedic surgeon. Even with financial constraints, ongoing daily discomfort may we well worth your investment. An appropriately trained hands-on professional may be key for you having more quality of life with regards to this situation and the big picture, don't you think?
Thinking of you,
