I am dealing with a weird feeling between my thigh and butt that feels like muscle soreness that is IMPOSSIBLE to stretch. I just can’t find a stretch that gets to it. My fiance is concerned that I am almost always experiencing muscle soreness. Some days are much worse than others, especially when I work a muscle that I usually don’t work. BUT, this weird thigh-butt muscle thing has been going on for months now. I am even wondering if it is really a sore muscle or not. It isn’t painful to the touch and I don’t always feel it. Hmmmm….

It would be helpful if you could identify the muscle. Between butt and thigh: TFL? I’m assuming when you say thigh you mean quad and not hamstring.
How often are you working out and what are you doing?July 25, 2013 at 10:17 am #10004
It is the muscle right below the butt cheek and the above the very top of the back of my thigh. I workout usually 6-7 days a week. I do kickboxing, a lot of body weight circuits, weight lifting, yoga once a week, etc. A lot of difference stuff. The sore muscles have now turned into aching bones… so I am guessing I need to cut it out. I will have to take a break, which is REALLY hard for me.July 26, 2013 at 7:25 pm #10109OrganicMuscleParticipant
A lot going on back there but i sounds like either: adductor magnus or biceps femoris. A bone ache is different from muscle soreness, and out of my league. Find a structural therapist or PT and have them diagnose and fix.
I have a similar gym schedule. I like to take a week off every 3 months to keep myself replenished. How are your temps? Replacement is always difficult for me as well. Those are usually times where i binge on watching movies or doing other psychologically unhealthy activities, but my body does need the rest … and gets more rest this way than religiously praising the cardio Gods.

I think a greater problem is that you are finding it hard to stop when your body is clearly giving you signals that it does not want to carry on. Persistent pain is not something to be ignored or worked through, it is a sign things are not right, and exercise should only be done for positive reasons, not because you feel like disaster will ensue if you do not stick to a rigid schedule. If I remember rightly- you are Bauer from YE? That sounds like a s***load of exercise for someone coming through recovery, and in all likelyhood your body just is not ready for that yet. But, I suppose you knew that already ;)July 30, 2013 at 9:36 am #10492
Imago, yes I am Bauer from YE. I did not follow the no exercise guidelines. I think you are correct in that the issue really lies in my attitude towards exercise. This is something I am working on in therapy. Thank you for your response. Have you incorporated exercise at all?
