Pain on lower L pubic bone after run, radiate to lower L back. Hurts while walk, lift L leg, and lifting R leg toward L leg. Cause bone or muscle?
Many possibilities: Attached to the "sit" bones are the hamstrings which can develop tendinitis. The hip rotators are deep to that area and can have tendinitis too. An alternative source would be lower back pain which can radiate down. For people who have muscle pain from running, reducing run distance, mixing in cross training and aggressive stretching can help. If not better, a stress fracture can be considered ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Y does my upper neck/ lower head always hurt like a little sprain and always has a teary cracking sound wen i turn my head right around??? :(
Snap, Crackle,Pop!: You might have a touch of arthritis in your neck that leads to that crunchy sound ('crepitations') in your neck when you twist it. That in turn could lead to some reactive muscle tightness. In some people it gets so bad it leads to a headache. Usually some x-rays help see if there's arthritis in there. The treatment involves medication, massage, range of motion exercises, proper posture and rest. ...Read more
Hi. I have been have neck pains, and pains mostly from the shoulders up, but also in the lower back. Could it be an infection or just a sprain?
Neither likely: Almost certainly not infection. Sprain is injury to ligaments..Also unlikely. More likely is strain of back and or shoulder and neck. Check if you are doing inappropriate exercises or overly stressful activities at work. If there is no neurological involvement (numbness, shooting pains, weakness, electric like shocks) this is likely muscular. If not improving with rest, NSAID see your pcp. ...Read more
