Why is it that I feel pain in front of my pelvis after running?

Why is it that I feel pain in front of my pelvis after running?

Pubic joint: Hi
If it only occurs after running, it may be that your pubic symphysis is irritated for some reason. The front center of your pelvis is actually held together by a cartilage, which can become irritated or inflamed when placed under undue stress. This is pretty commonly seen and has many causes. Might be helpful to get a formal exam to see what's going on. More info here: http://bit. Ly/2t6t5wB ...Read more

At any rate, to remove all doubt, have the bump examined either by a Healthtap orthopedist or your own. ...Read more
