Hello,i have been back running for a year almost now and after taking it gradual building up my runs,had entered a half marathon at the start of september. I was up to 12 miles on my long runs,so not to far from the distance,when i developed a sudden acute pain in my leg. This happened 4 days after my last run so it was not a injury directly due to running. Anyhow,after a doctor telling me i had a trapped nerve,and still being in acute pain for 4 days,i was diagnosed as having Sciatica. Prescribed strong painkilers (co-Codomal) and Gabapentin.
After nearly a week still very sore when not dosed with the painkillers. I wondering now is this the end of my running or is there a way back. I suppose the half marathon is out ? Completely gutted as i loved my running.
I am 53, male, ran a lot in my early thirties and started again a year ago.
Thanks for any help in advance.
