Suffering from discomfort in hip, have to limp. What is the cause?

HI I am suffering discomfort in my right hip, but only after 5 miles road running... it goes once I stop. It returned again on another run a few days later only after 5 miles again, causing me to limp a bit and try to change my footing. I am female and 41 years old and have always exercised since a child. Hope this is enough info

Hi ,
Thanks for posting your query.
Discomfort in your right hip seems to be muscular in nature. It might develop due to excessive running or exercise. I suggest you to give some rest from running. Doing hot fomatation and applying muscle relaxant gel will be helpful.
Hope this will helps you.
Warm regards
