I will try and keep the story short.
During W/O on Saturday I got one hell of a cramp in my lower back on the left side during my last set of GM’s. I guess about where your kidneys are located.
I was able to complete my W/O and upper body W/o on sunday. While it did effect some it was nothing unbearable, and monday and tuesday are the days I take off from trianing.
On days off I rubbed it, soaked it, icy hot and what not. Then this morning. It was barely noticeable so I went ahead with my work out. I started off slow to make sure all was ok. I was able to complete my ATG squats with no discomfort during the actual lifting, but during the rest period I could fell the same spot acting up. Finished the six sets and was able to actually move up in weight. I then was proceeding to stiff legged deads. This I was very cautious with, I only put on about 25% of my usual load. Nope, wasn’t going to happen, I dont think I could have lifted the bar. I decided to just finish with some leg curls and ab work. Went ok, not comfortable by any means.
Well then after shower and pwo drink I was damned if I could barely walk. No releif through the day as of yet. I ended up taking some hydrocodone just so I was able to walk. Depending on which way I move it has the ability to bring me to my knees.
So what I need to know is if this is just one hell of a cramp like it feels, or possibly a piched nerve or something. I have never had anything last this amount of time.I have had cramps but never a pinched nerve or anything. So any remedy or recomendation would be great. If I dont get some type of releif by early afternoon tom. I am going to the Doc.
Help a T-man forced to his knees, it must have been a site to see when I went to my knees in the gas station just from reaching in my pocket to get some cash.
