Last week while running, I start getting this deep pain on my left side buttocks out of nowhere. I can keep running, but it's not pleasant. I take the next day off and feel it slightly while walking around. By the second day, I don't feel it at all and go run. About a mile into my next run I start feeling it again. Again, I take a few days and run again and it comes back. I don't take a day off and do another run and see it how feels and it hurts right off the bat.
Today my whole lower hip area and side of my buttocks hurt. I try doing an IT Band stretch my swinging out my hips, I feel it more, but I don't know if it is doing any benefit. I am not sure if this is muscle pain or maybe IT band? I popped up out of nowhere. I haven't changed anything that I have been doing and otherwise feel fine.
Does anyone have any insight? Thanks
