Sounds as if to me perhaps something got out of line during that time of inactivity perhaps you are in need of physiotherapy or a chiropractor.
Hope you get to feeling back to yourself very soon.
Youíve got to stick with it. Change doesnít happen overnightónot meaningful, lasting change. Practice regularly, whether itís leg raises or gratitude exercises or positive affirmations. Make it part of your daily routine if possible.
You need patience (goes hand in hand with the persistence mentioned above). Itís seldom a straight shot to your goal. Youíll have setbacks and hit plateaus. But youíll also have breakthroughs and make great leaps forward. If you feel stuck, donít lose hope.
This is the point where I would find a good yoga/stretching instructor, and/or find a massage friend. Don't know you or your body, but it might a pinch on a nerve or a tiny muscle locked up. Not sure- just my non professional opinion.
Hope it takes care of itself for you soon. I've been in that spot before, and it stinks. Sorry about the pain in your @$$. Konrad

If you are a runner, it doesn't matter how far or how fast. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run." J Bingham
I'm not sure what I've done, exactly. It feels like a muscle strain, but the pain started during a long period of immobility (26 hour bus ride from northern Michigan to western Massachusetts). In a muscle deep in my glutes. I thought I'd just walk it off, but it's been two weeks, and I still have pain when I extend my left leg behind me. Not excruciating pain by any means, but it's changed my walking gait and made me take a break from running and simple strength exercises like donkey kicks. Any advice besides time and rest? I'm now having some upper back pain on my right, and I'm nervous that it's a response to the imbalance at hip level. Where is Dr. Jordan Metzl when I need him?
