Description: A brief painful, hot sensation, and swelling in hips. I can refer this as "overheat" as it will disappear if I rest my leg for few seconds, or very slow pedaling. When it disappear, it means gone, entirely, no pain at all. I can tell my hips are swelling as my pants feels tighter.
When: During intense movement such as fast or heavy pedaling. The "heat" accumulates and keep heating up and more painful if I don't rest my legs or slowing down the cadence. At peak point (which is VERY painful), I can barely move my legs.
Current condition: height 166.5cm, weight: 105kg, maybe this pain related to obesity but most of the symptoms only appear while cycling, rarely on any other daily activities.
This is very uncomfortable as I need to rest my leg for 5-10 seconds every now and then to let it "cool" down. Is this caused by obesity, or improper seating/pedal position ? I tried increasing/decreasing the height of my sadle without any effect. Can anyone describe what is this and is this common among cyclist ?
