I went out for a long run (~16mi) about three weeks ago as a part of the base building stage for a race next march. Around mile 7, I felt a burning sensation in the side of my right leg. I am not by any means a doctor, but it feels to be along the lower portion of the Peroneus brevis,( just to give a better idea of where the pain is). Anyway, i ended up walking 9mi back to campus, where I discovered the pain shooting up both my hamstring and my IT band into their respective places connecting to my hip area. I haven't run since, but the pain returns every time i run to catch a bus or something. I really want to get back out there, Any ideas on what the heck I did or how I can work to get better?
This is a wonderful example of what "The Doc" cannot do, and that is diagnose and suggest treatment for specific patient symptoms or problems. When you have something like this going on, it is really necessary that you see your medical provider for appropriate and specific evaluation, diagnosis, and therapy.
