Alright, so one day about 1 1/2 to 2 months ago, I was doing this stretch. I'm pretty flexible, so I needed to stretch pretty far to feel anything in my hamstrings. I feel tension in the hip joint (?) before a stretch in the leg. So, I'm doing this relatively slowly, and then my hip pops. Since then, my right hip (the side I was stretching on) has been sensitive, so I have avoided stretching that side too much... until last week. Before, I felt a slight, sharp pain when I stretched that leg backwards, but it wasn't a big deal and barely affected my day to day life. However, I tried doing the same stretch last week and actually stretched it, assuming that the sensitivity wasn't actually a big deal and I was just being too cautious. This time, my hip popped twice, and I knew I messed up. Now, I feel the same sharp pain every time I put pressure on my right hip when it is bent (as in when I try lifting the leg or sitting) and still when I pull the leg back, except I feel it much sooner now, to the point where I have to adjust my walking. I wasn't planning on really doing anything about it until now, but it is getting pretty annoying now that I have testing coming up and I'm grimacing every time I try to side kick. Any ideas for what exactly happened? For now, I'm trying to not practice or cause stress to the area, but obviously I won't be able to do that for long (I go to physical school, and have ma class twice this week and testing on Friday--none of which I plan on missing). Also, I am putting Biofreeze on the area in the mornings and at nighttime, and also plan on putting it on before ma class. I don't want to have to see a professional for this, and I don't think it is necessary, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
