I was going for a ME deadlift this morning and the bar stalled about knee height, I fought it for a while, and had to drop it when I felt a sharp pain in my back. It’s not the worst lower back pain I’ve ever had but I’m nervous because an hour or two later I began feeling a numb/tingling sensation on the outside of my left quad.
About a year and a half ago I herniated my L5/S1 squatting and went through around 2 months of really bad sciatica pain on the right side, so now I’m extra nervious about any sort of neuropathy following a back injury.
Am I right to suspect that I’ve herniated another disc? I assume this one’s higher up – does anyone know which vertebra innervates the quad muscles? Anybody experience the same thing?
