STUPID Hip Flexor

So I don't even know how (prob my fault, doing something incorrectly) but I hurt my hip flexor. This was over a month ago and it still hurts when I run.

it feels like a small splinter in between my femer and hip bone. Nothing unbearable, but I cant run, and I was just starting to enjoy it (running). i know the obvious answer is to stay off of it until it heals, but it's been about 6 weeks. This is just lame now.

I tried to start going on little 15 minute runs and im finding that my other leg in compensating for it, and now IT is starting to hurt (even lamer).

Any suggestions? Stretches? Anything?

I'm sorry to say, but physical therapy may be a consideration. I had the same injury & I learned that if I didn't heal & retrain the muscle that it would keep popping up again as a problem. I did physical therapy two years ago & it has done the trick. Before that I just kept re-aggrivating it.
