    I'm going to guess that my pain must be quite minor. After the icing the other night, it's been pretty bearable. I'm letting it go to see how bad it gets; how soon.

    It still hurts with pressing on it but not so bad for laying on that side.

    I can't wait to get my roller and incorporate that into my workout.

    Thanks again for the help. I would have guessed where to start look this up!

    Sounds like IT band to me. Could be Sciatica as well. I have REALLY bad Sciatica from an old lower back injury (L4/L5) that presents in a similar way. I'd definitely get it checked by a doctor though just to make sure it isn't something more serious, like a clot.

    For future reference, the black ones are "harder", and therefore more effective, but may be too painful at the beginning.

    And if you can make it through 25 rolls the first time without crying, you're made of far sterner stuff than I am. But immediately following the rolling is bliss. It turned into something like a drug addiction to me... the rolling hurt like nothing else, but the after was so amazing that I would keep inflicting rolling pain on myself.

    Another suggestion, if the rolling is far too painful, is to get some baby oil or something along those lines, and just lay on your side and run the palm of your hand from hip to knee. You can control how hard you go.

    Someone left a pink one at the PTs office once. It was slightly squishy and we all threatened to steal it. I bought my black one at the running gear store and that was all they had.
    A helmet saved my life.

    2017 goal: learn to ride like TheHorseProblem, er, a barn rat!
