What you describe is a chronic tendinopathy. These can be difficult to treat and often come back easily. There are a number of other treatment options for this including nitroglycerin patches, eccentric rehab and even PRP. I would seek out a MD in your area who is skilled at treating chronic tendinopathy. Good luck, I know this can be a frustrating problem to treat.View Thread
From your description it is hard to say what exactly is causing the pain. In general I am not a fan of working through pain until you have a solid diagnosis. There are many aches and pains that we all train through, however others can be made worse by doing this. 'On top of the thigh" I am not sure if this means superficially or close to the hip. Either way it could be bone pain or muscle. Pain with every step requires a comprehensive evaluation. Lactic Acid does build up with a hard work out but from the descriptio that does not sound like the case. Unfortunately this is not an easy one to answer via email. I would seek out a comeptent sports medicien doctor to evaluate this problem before you push your running further.View Thread

it is possible but more likely deep muscle injury. Likely this will resolve over time but both the chance for occult fracture and compartment syndrome which is a result of swelling in the relatively fixed compartments in the lower leg. Although unlikely to be this, if you re still in this much pain this far out I would have a professional look at it.View Thread
Neither is perfect. Taping gives a little better stability in the first few minutes but then gets stretched out. Lace up braces are not as tight but do not give as much over time. For most recreational athletes lace up braces are more than adequate in conjunction with a proper rehab program.View Thread
REST. You likely have a partial tear of you pectoralis muscle. Minor strains or partial tears can do well with rest and rehab. Some complete tears require surgical intervention. If there is a visible defect or any weakness get this looked at by a local sports med doc.View Thread
