hi im a little worried about the problem that I have at the minute. I was diagnosed with a herniated disc at l5-s1 7mm 5 months ago the pain is still there but it was improved dramatically. I was on holiday about 2 weeks ago and I was able to do everything that I wanted and felt good. however when I got back I had a charity golf comp and as I felt better I thought that I would give it a go. just before I played I felt a slight pull in my calf, I thought nothing of it as I put it down to doing to much and I wanted to play the comp. so I took 2 painkillers and felt great.
I managed to play the full round and managed to win so I was elated, however that night (when the pain killers wore off) my calf got more and more painful so I couldn't put any weight on it. same sunday and Monday then Tuesday it felt a bit better. 1 week on I feel like I have a weakness in my calf and find it a bit harder to go on my tip toes I also have had a little bit of pins and needles in my toes which comes and goes , im a little scared by the difficulty of tip toeing, im mainly worried that my calf is atrophying of I may just have a calf strain as I cant see any muscle loss only a small like of power.
Im probably just worrying for nothing but I would appreciate any help and thoughts on this topic.
