Looking for some input on an injury that happened today.
I was deadlifting and while pulling felt a snap or pop in my lower back. I had immediate, though not severe pain, radiating from my lower back to the middle of my right calf. About fifteen minutes later the sole of my right foot was numb.
It doesn’t feel like a back injury, it feels muscular. In fact I have a feeling it is the piriformis muscle as I have injured it in the past with similar symptoms.
It’s been about three hours and I still have the same pain, no better and no worse. However, if I put bodyweight on my right side my butt and hammie go numb.
Any suggestions on what I might have done or how to treat this would be appreciated.
