Osteitis Pubis: A slight progress

I am definitely getting better. I think that the worst is mostly behind me. The only issue I have now is dull pain in lower abdominal when I sit for a long time (1 hour or longer) or when I run.

I started doing 45 minute interval workouts on a stationary bike, 2-3 times a week. No issues there. But the test run from 3 days ago showed that it will still take time before I start running regularly. I ran again today, a bit longer intervals (1-3 minutes). No pain during the run until last 3-4 intervals when I felt that dull pain in lower abs, 2-3″ above the PS. Now, 8 hours after the run, I feel some itching around the PS, I hope this will disappear by tomorrow. But in general, it is better than a week ago.

Last week I visited a traditional Chinese acupuncture place. I have not noticed a difference after the treatment. I am going again today and probably next week. I want to give it a chance.

I am actively looking to buy a road bike. I want to use biking as an alternative to running this summer.
