Great thoughts, Elona! Thanks for throwing out some ideas from that perspective!

I'm a retired rehab nurse.

I'm just throwing out some ideas.

It may have something to do with circulation. Are you warming up for 10 minutes (nice and easy) before your workout? And are you eating 1-2 hours before your workout a small meal with protein and carbs? Sometimes if your potassium is low normal it can cause muscle tightness and muscle fatigue. Low normal potassium AND low normal calcium can cause muscle and tendon issues. Lab reports may not even reflect these levels, because they go up and down hour by hour. You might try a multivitamin with minerals and iron daily for a month and see how it works, that is if you are not already taking them. You can also play around with taking potassium supplements. Just make SURE you check with your doctor before you do. You don't want to overdo it. What about your hips. It is possible your problem has been fixed, but certain nerves or vessels are being pressed on somehow. I would definitely talk to your doctor and your physiotherapist about this. You might think about a second opinion evaluation. One other thing, are you taking any medications? Often times patients have odd reactions to some medications even if they have been on them a long time. People's bodies change. It's not like people are furniture. Lol.

Just food for thought,

Is it possible for you to make your page open to friends? Right now it's not appearing and there's no way to get to know you. Take a visit to my page and see what I am talking about, that is if you don't mind.

I wish you the best of luck!

How often are you doing the HIIT type of workouts? Have you tried lowering your intensity level to see if that changes anything for you? If you are doing it multiple times a week, maybe even consider dropping one of those types of workouts and doing something more gentle. It could be something as simple as you are overloading your body too much with the intensity of the HIIT style workouts and your body may need more rest before doing that type of workout.

My first thought is additional hydration and my second thought is reducing the intensity and/or duration of the workout. After that I would look into electrolytes and maybe play around with what you are eating beforehand.

-google first. ask questions later.

Maybe a pain specialist would help...

Yes I went to the doctor and they were the ones to refer me to the physiotherapist. The physiotherapist helped strengthen my adductor issue and the osteopath helped me align my hips as I have a small issues where my hips regularly need realigning.

However neither were able to diagnose the pain issue I have as it would always disappear when I went to bed and slept it off. And I never managed to book an appointment when I had the issue occur. The pain and stiffness would only occur immediately after a work out in my hamstring and inner leg but would never last through to the next day. Which has made it extremely hard to find a solution or diagnosis

Do your osteopath or physiotherapist have any ideas on what it could be? Honestly, I've never heard of something like that happening and being that they are having a hard time diagnosing it, we would not be able to either, especially since we can't physically assess you and would just be taking guesses. I wonder if they have given you any indication of the ideas that they think it could be though. Is it like a cramping type of pain or something else? Just kind of wondering if there might be a nutrient deficiency or even lack of water causing some of the issues for you. But again, just guessing and I can't really say one way or another, but I do hope that you can find the answers you are looking for. Have you checked with your regular doctor at all?

Yes I am. And I regularly used foam rollers. But sometimes my legs are stiff and before I get to cool down and it’s quite painful.

Are you stretching after your workout or cooling down?

Hello, I recently injured my adductors and spent a few months avoiding certain exercises to allow them to heal, however , I am baffled at another injury I have as I cannot pinpoint what I have injured , how , or what to do to avoid the injury reoccurring. Sometimes when I do cardio such as a HIIT class I am fine until I leave the class , within 10 mins my legs stiffen up and I am unable to walk as my thighs are so painful. I struggle to pick my legs up to move or walk or even get in my car. Once I go to bed and wake up the pain is gone And I can walk just fine. This happens pretty much everyday when I work out. any ideas on what this could be? I have been to see an osteopath and physiotherapist, however, as I’m not always in n pain they also find it hard to diagnose.
