Anterior hip nerve pain

Hello, I am 28 and have been having sporadic nerve pain anterior to my left hip for about 2 years. It becomes less frequent with daily back extension stretches, and prior to today I had not experienced this pain in about a month. Although it seems I have flare ups where it will happen multiple times a day for a couple days and then not happen for a couple weeks. The pain is very localized to right over the hip and does not extend down the leg, although I will rarely feel numbness in a toe of my left leg. I am very active, I play basketball, lift weights(including squats and deadlifts) and jog. I am not sure if this is due to a spinal issue or not, as I have not been to a doctor yet due to the sporadic and mild nature of the pain. Any insights into what this pain may be? Thank you in advance, tbird2017

    It could possibly be a slightly pinched nerve or have something positional to do with contact with the nerve since you also have it in the toe on the left.....I have a dermatome map as my avatar. This map shows where each set of spinal nerves innervates an area of the body......That may help you to determine if it is nerve related.
  • Welcome TBird. Sandi had some good ideas. I find the avatars fascinating. Another possibility to consider might be to ask a doctor if physical therapy might help. With all of your very active exercise, it could be that some of what you do needs to be modified to reduce the chance of injury. I don't know, but maybe a therapist who focuses on pelvic pain might help if the pain is on the front in that area. Men as well as women can benefit from this if it's the issue.

    I hope you can find something that can keep you as active as you are!
