Hello. My name is Andrew and several years ago while I was still a senior in college, I got a very dull ache in my hip. Over the next several weeks it ballooned to become an excutiating pain. At one point I was walking across a street and had to stop in the middle of the intersection because my hip hurt so badly.

I made an appointment to see a doctor where it was discovered that I have piriformis syndrome. My doctor gave me a few stretches to do to loosen the piriformis muscle. I did them and after a few weeks, I was back to my old self.

Every now and again the pain will come back, but not as intense as before. Steching will usually ease it.

Anyhow, that's my story. Not very dramatic, I know.
