I have, what I believe, is periformis syndrome. It was originally just the sciatic nerve stuff, which I basically ignored, and just stretched. After my long run yesterday(well during it actually) I noticed an odd and new pain right around my hip bone. After some investigation I read about PS which describes what I am dealing with to a *T*. My question to y'all is has anyone here dealth with it and did you continue to run through the 'healing process'? I'm doing the stretching and sitting on a tennis ball, but I really don't want to have to cut back on my training TOO much, as I have a 12 hr race in July...

What a pain in the ass huh? Go to <a href="http://www.sacrowedgy.com" target="_blank">www.sacrowedgy.com</a>. It has really helped me. Kills when you're doing it, but it works. I've found that I can usually run through it but I don't do the kind of miles that it sounds like you do. Good luck!

I too have had this on and off for a few years. Did the stretching, yoga poses and sat on a lacrosse ball at work....which helped a little, but I never got rid of it.<br><br>
I finally went to a chiropractor and am now 100% pain free! I had significant relief after just one session and after 6, I feel back to my old self. Not even a twinge.<br><br>
Good luck!

I had what I thought was piriformis syndrome but it wasn't after all. I had a strength imbalance in my glutes, etc which was causing what I thought was piriformis pain. I went to see a chiropractor who does ART and I haven't had any issues with it in over a year. Good luck

I have dealt with this off and on for years. I try to stretch out as much as possible and use a Yamana Ball to roll it out. I have been taking dance for the past two years, which helps inprove my flexibility and lots of stretching. When I was first diagnosed, I had a concurrent femoral stress fracture which required a good bit of time off. When I do feel tightness in the area, I take extra time to roll it out and stretch.

THANKS <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br>
Turns out I don't believe that is it at all. Seems I banged my hip and left a huge scrape somehow without knowing it. Duh......My long run must have aggrivated it.
