Been a lurker hear for about 8 months prior to my microdiscectomy/hemilaminectomy which was performed August 2014. I was 21 years old and very healthy at the time and happened to get injured while playing football/slipping on the icy turf. In short, my surgery was a complete success and I felt 100%. However, last week while running incline on my treadmill (14 months post op), I noticed a VERY stiff calf and heal on my right leg following my workout session. It was not a burning, pins and needles, or tingling pain but rather a stiffness. I also noticed that if I pushed roughly on my right glute and lower back, I get a quick "electric" nerve shot of pain down the affected calf and foot. I am extremely scared that I reherniated however the pain intensity is no where close to what I had prior to my surgery. How did you know when you reherniated? Do you still get an electric shock if you push a trigger point?
