I had an epidural injection and a L4/5 S1 microdiscectomy in 2012. I recovered well, with very little pain until these past few months where I am now experiencing back pain in my lower left side. I have been participating in a couple half marathons and was wondering if that was attributing to my back pain.
My back pain is very severe, and more painful than it was before I had any surgery. My flexibility (I could just get past my knees bending down before) has also diminished quite rapidly.
Thoughts on what to do and how to proceed would be brilliant.
