Tight left hip, glute muscles causing left lower back pain


My left lower back hurts the next day after walking or peddling a bike- from something in my left hip or glutes. Hard to pinpoint the source as the whole area gets tight. The outer thin muscles are tight but I think its from very deep inside, as I can loosen the outer but its still tight very deep. Its not sharp, but very achy and tight, limits motion. Gets better if I stop taking walks or bike rides for 1 week, but comes back as soon as I resume mobile exercise.

I hear runners get this sometimes? Anyone have some advice?

I used to be very fit and am familiar with most stretching. I have used myfacial muscle tension release (AKA Trigger point therapy) on myself with the Thera Cane and various tennis and golf balls- on the floor.

I've searched all muscles for the point of pain origin, cant find it! I went farther too - quads, upper back, checked out the right side in case it was really referred pain from the right side.

I had this on the right side years ago- it just went away.

I do have hypothyroidism and that does mess with muscle / tendon recovery even if your treated properly some times (thyroid hormone replacement per Free T3 and Free T4 testing.)

Went to chiro, left side of pelvis was out of place, SI joint fine. Feel better.

Wish I could 'crack' myself!
