Hello all - I am new to this site and would appreciate some advice/thoughts. I developed sciatica about 8 weeks ago on my left side, presumably caused by a back problem. Long story short, I had meds from Dr and the horrible pain has gone. However, it has left me with a very weak left calf and I still have numbness in the outer part of my left foot. It is getting me down as running (I jog three or four times a week) and It is stopping me. I also am limping a bit as a result. Is this natural after effects of sciatica? Will strength return? Should I be pushing the Dr for an MRI scan etc? Help - I just want to get back to normal!
