Question: Hello. I was playing golf in Sep of last year, got a sudden pain in left buttock/hip area around the 6th. It went away then after I started walking more it would come back. I stretched a lot the night before. Now whenever I walk the discomfort starts especially up stairs. I'm just hoping it's not a vascular issue.

Brief Answer:
it is muscle pull

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have studied your case. I think you are having a muscle pull. It is not vascular. I would suggest you following.
1. Avoid travelling or any sports activity.
2. Do not lift heavy weight.
3. You can do hot water fomentation and apply volitra gel.
4. rest will help. You can take pain killer like Tylenol if pain is more.
I hope this answer will help you.
Thanks

Thank you. Wouldn't the pain with walking go away after 4 months or can it take longer?
