Popping Hip

Hey all, I recently started exercising again (about a week and a half now) and last week the eliptical sparked a popping in my hip. When I exercised last year in the spring I also felt it on the eliptical but it didn't bother me. After I got off the eliptical last week it was painful to walk up stairs.

I was okay a couple of days later, I took it easy and last night started the more rigorous routine again, but afterwards my hip was popping again. It is the outside of my hip, feels like the joint or the tendon. It isn't painful this time, I just feel uncomfortable in that area right now.

Has anyone else experienced this, and could it be I just didn't wait long enough to recuperate from an injury last week?

I snap, crackle, and pop so much that I could never sneak up on anyone!

I really think you should not use the eliptical again until after you see your doctor. Soon.

My knees pop all the time (have since I was around 12, or at least that is when I first noticed it), and now I often have trouble with them, especially on stairs. When I baby the one that is hurting (sometimes it is the left, sometimes the right, and sometimes both at the same time), it gets better for awhile. But if I keep aggravating it, it just gets worse. So don't continue to aggravate your hip. Have the doctor check it out as soon as possible.

Thanks Barb, I should make an appointment with a chiropractor in the area one of these days and see what's up.
Man, I am hungry but I am super indecisive. I'm glad I don't have any chips here, or else I would be shoving them down my hole!

I know what you mean! I have had too many tortilla chips and salsa lately and my swollen ankles are complaining!

I'd send you the rest of mine, but they might be a little crumbly by the time you got them in a week or so!

Look, you need to have it looked at. MIL did that when we were at the coast while swimming. It continued until it started hurting her. She ended up having to have a hip replacement due to the hip popping out over and over and damaging the "ball" end of her leg that goes into the socket. More than likely, not what is going on with you, but, I would check to be sure.

I don't think it is that serious, but I agree and I am planning on making a physiotherapist appointment soon, after I inquire if my plan at work covers it and what the process is.

Stretching usually helps. Do you normally stretch before and after exercising?

I am the same as Barb. My knees have popped since I was in elementary school. If I put my hand over them and move my knee it feels as if it is grinding.

I still play basketball, ride the bike without much issues. I may get them checked out in another 20 years. hehe
