Lower back pain when running, tightening of legs

Pain on the right hand side of my lower back/ top of my glute. I regularly run. The pain builds within a mile or 2 of running and gets gradually worse. When on the move running it is bareable but when I stop and try to start again it is very painful. I end up struggling even to walk but over the course of a few hours rest it eases quickly and the following day I feel ok. I feel generally tight in legs and lower back.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in your hip joint seems to be related to an intra- articular pathology like inflammation or a mild tear in the ligaments. An MRI scan of the area will help in proper diagnosis. The treatment will then depend on the findings.
