On Monday, I was working out (deadlifting) and I felt like it felt like a terrible pain in my lower back. It locked up locked for a few seconds.
I was finally was able to stand up and walk around a bit (pain was still horrendous). About 5 mins later the inside of my left leg went numb. I considered going to the emergency room but I HATE going to doctors so I just put ice on it.
The numbness has reduced since the first day but the inside of left knee is still numb and I have no hip abduction strength. However, my back has felt like it has better each day.
I'm thinking I might of herniated a disk that put pressure on my sciatic nerve causing the numbness and weakness? I really don't want to go to a doctor, especially sense my back is feeling much better. Do you think its just a matter of time before all is well?
