So, for a few years now everytime I moved someone or helped someone move towards the end of the day my right leg, butt cheek and lower back would get this dull driving pain. I eventually would have to sit down and basically not move for a few hours and then slowly would regain the feeling in my leg, and its power.
I lift, and am very serious about it, so I always just thought the pain was from moving to quickly while moving boxes and packing for a move etc. I was wrong.
The pain, which became more and more frequent turns out to be a "slight" scoliosis of my back down where it terminates into my lower back. It curves to the right and when aggravated pinches my nerve that runs through my butt down my right leg.
I am at this point now where deadlifts are no longer something I can do. Straight leg deadlifts are now becoming almost unbearable. I can't build my quads because a full squat is out of the question, and well a regular squat is fine, but I can't go heavier than 275.
What to do...
Now I'm having problems just when I walk, I swear this seems to be getting worse. The ortho surgeon told me to do more core, and flexibility training. So I am incorporating that back into my regimen.
Anyone else suffer from this? Any good supps (I take Cissus, don't notice a difference) out there?
