T-Nation. What a wonderful world is here. I read some articles and all was helpfull, but i feel it’s time to ask personal.
Little background: I was amateur gym guy with 4 years experience to may 2013. On 3 rep on deadlift i make it with bad technique. Follow some strange sound like dry branches break. No pain in lower back or food, just nothing. I did not knew what happened. Only some feeling like tiredness. Then stop deadlift and back exercises for 3 weeks, but only exentsions.
After some weeks i develop some (it’s hard to me to determined) discomfort/burning feeling in my right buttock when i am in sit position. Same year november my fitness trainings end. This feeling in buttock was there, but i don’t have reason to think i have some back injury.
In may 2014, two months into the gym, my right achilles tendor stop working. Three days after i make deadlift. Pretty soon my right muscle from buttock to leg start to feel pain. I go on neurologist and then in hospital. There i was diagnosed with radikulit. After some threatment with medication and ultrasound, eletro-system they alive nerve. I was ok. After one month something happen.
Maybe my nerve was pinched, because i have bad feeling in lower back and i can’t walk or strand straight for 1 min. Again on neugologist, she prescribe me CT where i was diagnosed with L5-S1 disc herniation. I was on rehab program with ultrasound for 3 min. and 15 min. in magnetic ring. After some months i make for myself MRI. Result is mediolateral disc herniation L5-S1 and small protrusion on L5-L4.
I read a lot for disc herniation, core, streching and other threatments. My problems with drop food, low back pain, walking and staying straight (tnx God) dissapear. Make streching everyday, walking a lot (1h+), make exercises from Modified Watkins-Randall protocol. But this problem with feeling in right buttock don’t disappear when i am in sitting position. This is big problem for me, because i need to work on desk (junior software developer) and long sitting kill me.
When i was speaking with doctor they said something like “diffrent ppl have diffrent tolerance to pain or pain cant be meausre you must choose what to do.” Also i am 6 foot (183cm) and 220pounds (100kg). Do you think if i lose weight to 90-85kg will have diffrence or this feeling disappear. Need some guys to get rid of this feeling and work normal. I feel, i am in the right place with the right folks.
If need, i can upload MRI pic.
