Ohhhh, give or take a couple of months, I'd say 6 months.  I somehow developed
it a couple years ago from hitting a jumbo bucket of balls at a driving range
and running a marathon in the same week.  You'll need to take it easy for a
while and stretch it often.  It stinks, good luck.

I've had problems with ITB syndrome before.  A simple stretch took care of
my problem.  This may be a little hard to envision:  from a sitting position
with both legs stretched out in front of you, bend your injured knee and
cross it over your good leg so that the heel of your injured leg is on the
ground on the other side of your good leg and your injured knee is in front
of your chest.  Now gently pull your knee toward your chest.  You may have
done any number of variations of this stretch before.  If you do this
stretch correctly, you will feel it in your ***because the ITB goes from
the lateral side of the knee, up your leg, and attaches in the buttock area.

I had one this winter and I kept it 3 months.

There are some web pages interesting about this injury (and ways to make it go away):

Good luck! Mine is far away now and I finished IM Switzerland 3 months after without
pain.

I have had this injury, and most others as well.  Stretch, ice and
anti-inflammatories.  Be consistent and don skip any days.
