I've had 2 c-sections, and i'm a runner. I have had lower back pain and hip flexor pain. Stretching and time off running don't help. Help?!?

In brief: Time to see the doc

A sports med doc can help you with this issue.
A thorough history and exam coupled with x-rays and potentially other forms of imaging will help confirm or exclude the causes. In your case, a running gait and postural analysis plus strengthening exercises may be quite helpful.
