What the bloody hell...?

I've managed to hurt myself in a way that defies my understanding. Some of the muscles around my left hip are pulled or strained in such a way that I can walk just fine, but trying to move my leg independently hurts like heck! Also, while I can stand up without pain and even put my full weight on the leg, sitting and lying down are very uncomfortable. So much so, in fact, that it woke me up this morning at 4am. I had to get up and take ibuprofen to get back to sleep.

It feels a little like the time I had bursitis in my early twenties, but of course it isn't, because putting any weight on it at all would be excruciating. It also feels a bit like the time I pulled some muscles in my lower back/upper ass while cleaning house, but that didn't make sitting or lying down hurt.

I have to admit... I'm stumped.

It's called "getting old." 😉

Almost sounds like it could be siatica - most likely from a herniated disk.

I had something similar happen to me when I hurt my psoas muscle. I didn't even know what the psoas muscle was. (It's the muscle that runs from your inner thigh up to your spine.) Naproxen and hot baths are all I can suggest.
