I used to believe the cause was definitely the deadlift workouts that day. Mostly hip pain then developed to radiate the whole right leg and ankle. I had a MRI a month later which indicated herniated disc L4/L5 and received several physical therapy session with no help. I started to read the book Healing Back Pain. TMS seems to fit my shoes nicely. As I began to log the evidence sheet (thanks to TMSWIKI's program), I gradually build more faith on the injury is from physiology. Especially today I found my doggy poo in my kitchen, I was outrageously angry about it but I had to suppress the emotion because I can't beat my doggy. The pain strikes me in a snap after that. I'm mostly free of restrictions since I've resumed most activities and gym workouts one month ago. The only problem I'm having now is, I can't run for more than 4 minutes or sometimes can't walk for more than 20 minutes. Pain, tangling, numbness and weakness all come together if I do run longer. I try to suppress and ignore the feeling and tell me it's all from my mind. But mostly it doesn't help at all. I wonder, should I continue to run with pain and great determinations? Or switch to other activities ( I did several different cardio like stationary bike, they all won't trigger the symptom). Thanks for taking time reading and answering!
