I am 59 years old. I have been running for several years (30 to 40 miles per week). Over the last several months I have noticed that my right hip starts to ache after 4 to 6 miles. If I stop running for several minutes, the ache immediately goes away. I begin running again and the ache gradually comes back. The ache starts to become more of a pain when I reach 12 to 14 miles. Palpating the hip produces no pain or discomfort at all. No rotation or stretching causes any discomfort. I have increased my stretching time and started taking OTC anti-inflammatory drugs to no avail. I stopped running for a week without any change. Any ideas?
