Painful Muscle Knots On Hip
Has anyone been woken up by a severe lower back hip pain? Wow the other night I woke up to excruciating pain on the back side of my hip. I could feel knot
that formed on the right side lower back. Just about the hip. Oy Vey. It settled down after i was able to move positions. But talk about painful.
I went to gym and worked out later that day it was still sore and knotted. I then went for a massage on Friday. The massage therapist said boy you have a couple knotts that you need to break down. The massage helped but I went home and put a heating pad on the area with BenGay. It feels better the last 2 days.
I was wondering what causes this happen? It this a cause for concern? I never had a skin knot before so, how do we prevent Skin knots from occuring?

@travelgirl are you referring to a muscle cramping they can feel like knots from.stress to lack of potassium,magnesium in your body to dehydration ? Pick yours ? Knots unlike just cramps have to be massaged out heating pad will help . Hope this helps I know how they hurt ,feel better Linda
Good distinction between knots and cramping, @lioness
@travelgirl, you might want to try a foam roller on the area or even working out the knots with a tennis ball against the wall.
That’s what I’ve tried and if it’s a nerve issue too it makes the problem worse for me. The skin burns and my two hands get numb and I’m sicker than anyone can imagine. I don’t know what else to try for pain behind my head neck back legs. Anyone another idea ? Thank you very much . God help all of us who suffer.
I am not a doctor but I have been experiencing the same type of pain and symptoms for the past 4 weeks. I see a physical therapist three times a week. I get severe muscle cramps in my back. These cramps get so tight they cause a chain reaction and soon my cramps include multiple muscle groups. They often cause my pelvis to go out of alignment which then cause Sciatica pain which then causes swelling and the knot that I believe you’re speaking of. I would recommend checking with your healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis. For me, my therapist does some stretches then Ice pack, electrical stem and massage helps. I found a really good stretch that works for me when the pain gets really bad. Good luck and hope you get some answers.
Thank you @dawn_giacabazi for being so prompt with the message. I feel for you, and pray that your doctors will figure it out somehow. Next week I’m supposed to go to Mayo to join their pain rehab center, I don’t know what to expect but I’ll keep you all posted . Let’s hope we all find some relief about these horrible symptoms.
I am sending my prayers with you!! You will love it and know you will be in fantastic hands!! I went to the pain treatment center many many years ago and still use every single tool they taught me!! It is understandably the best place to be!!
@marinelastef What all have you done for pain? What are your diagnosis? I have fibromyalgia L2fracture bulging disc and other problems with fibromyalgia its a guessing game as the Dr,s dont know what causes it .My fractured back is another big problem so Ive done alot of natural things beside pills which are,nt helping now .
Good point, @marinelastef. I had checked with my doctor about the pain I was experiencing before I started foam rolling. She confirmed that it was my IT band that needed massaging and recommended the foam roller. It hurt like heck, but eventually the fascia became more supple and the pain went away. I don't think I would've worked through the pain without knowing that it was the right thing to do under guidance from my doctor. I first wanted to confirm that it wasn't a nerve issue.
I’m glad you got some relief @colleenyoung , despite the fact that it hurts, if it’s a good hurt you are on the right path. Unfortunately, in my case was the nerve not the knot that can’t bear any rubbing or deep massage pressure. Still looking for other ways to deal with the pain. Thank you for sharing with us what might be good for others. God bless .
Im really sorry for what you have to go through @lioness . I feel your pain and suffering and I know how it’s like to not be able to find any relief. Keep looking, don’t give up, we are in this together. My problem started after a deviated septum surgery with turbines cleaned and cut, 2 left nostril blocks, 3 left occipital nerve blocks and left ear damaged. My left side is dying while the right is ok. I struggle 24/7 with severe pain, burning weakness numbness breathing walking problems and nothing I had done so far helps me. To the contrary, I think the blocks made my condition worse and unbearable, and no doctor wants to fix what went wrong. It’s horrible and unethical to leave someone agonizing and wasting away like this but so far I have no other choice. My hope is in upcoming pain rehab program I’m supposed to be in next week. If something good come out of it i will all let you know.
