I went up a steep hill in September last year (i used to jogg daily for 20-30min) after the uphill contest I started to experience lower back pain and pain on my left buttock and thigh area when I stretch. I only fell the pain when i stretch on the left side say to touch my toes or when i do a hamstring stretch on the left side.
I have since stopped working out (from September last year) any idea what i can do to get better. I really miss my work outs, and just being normal again.
I do not feel the pain when carrying out normal activity or anything. Sitting, walking etc. This pain only comes when I am stretching the left leg (say hamstring stretch, touching toes or while laying on my back, I raise the left leg and cross it over the right or when I make long strides while walking up hill and or bend to touch my toe). The back pain has since reduced significantly- almost all gone, except for when i sit for long hours. My job requires i sit at the computer for long hours. But i often get up and stretch.
I'm 30 yrs, 5'11 weigh 77kgs and never had any history of injuries. Used to play tennis and work out often-mainly jogging.
The pain is mainly located around my left butt near my hips, and is at its most when I stretch to touch my toe or try to heel walk.
Different doctors have told me different things from sciatica, to muscular or ligament issues.
