Thanks Coach Stronski for the quick response. The pain itself seems to be on the outer edge of the buttux on the left side. The pain seem to be intense for about thirty seconds or so, at which point it then subsides, although lately it has never been going away 100%. The pain also seems to have an impact on my calve. The pain in my calve is only present though after the pain in the "hip area" leaves. This has been going on for a few months now, but it progressivly getting worse. Being used to aquiring sore joints, at first, i just thought of it as a little pain that would just go away in time, but it has not. The reason i thought i may have something to do with the hip flexor is because of the fact that it only seems to be present (at least intensly) after standing up after a period of sitting. Like I said i have an appointment with the Doc the first week of December, but it I an curious what this could be. All of the research points to the hip flex, but then again, as an accountant, it is rather tough for me to understand what the hell all of the medical jargon means in the reasearch. Thanks again.
