7 weeks ago, my "niggle" began which was what I thought was a hamstring pull... I did manage to run a sub-39 minute 10k on it, but wasn't good for much afterwards. Anyway this tightness developed into pain all over my left leg, during running and the rest of the time, as well as lower back pain.
I saw an osteopath, who did some "clicking" of my back, which massively worsened things.
Anyway, I have since had an MRI which showed a slipped disc at the L5/S1 level, which is causing nerve impingement, causing my pain. A physio has advised to rest, and take anti-inflammatories, which I am doing.
I was supposed to be doing the London Marathon, but I think that is out of the window, as I haven't run without pain for about 7 weeks now.
I just wondered if anyone has done anything similar, and what they have done to recover from it / anything that has made it worse.
Thank you Yaz
