Opening hips, in pain

I've been doing yoga for a year now. I've been really 'locked' particularly at the hips. The right side is more relaxed (having experienced a massive 'clunk' near my sacrum one day) but I'm having difficulty with my left side. I'm in regular discomfort and am actually hobbling at times. I need painkillers to cope sometimes. This has only begun since the front of my hips started to release through yoga a few months ago. I've only recently started to feel a stretch across the front of my hips in warrior 1&2, I just wasn't 'getting it' before. Just wondered if anyone had any experience or advice they could share please.

Sorry to hear your hips are painful. Where exactly do you feel the pain? Google "groin strain" and see if symptoms sound familiar.

Thanks Cote. The pain is across the front of my hips. I had a read and I wonder if it's the little adductor muscle just coming back into play after many years of inaction. A physio has commented in the past at the surprising lack of movement in my hips. So yes I think it's groin strain. Thank you.

That's where I feel my groin strain, too. Please see a specialist doctor if (over time) it keeps coming back.

Thanks Cote, I will do. I appreciate the advice.
