      Have you ruptured a disk? I had that happen about 12 years ago -- pretty sure it was L4 -- and it was a miserable ~8 months getting over it. I didn't have to have surgery, but I limped for a long time!

      I hope you're able to figure out what's causing the pain and get it sorted out very soon. My trainer makes sure to have hip flexibility/strength exercises in every workout (along with piriformis and IT band foam-rolling) to try to prevent problems.

      Sorry been MIA- got the results on Friday and then went to the beach for a few days :) Good news is no stress fracture!!! VERY good news :) PT to try to figure out if it's the SI joint, back in 3 weeks. Frustrating thing is I haven't run or worked out in over a week and the pain isn't any better. Hopefully PT will help. But am relieved about the elimination of the stress fracture!
