I am wondering any one like my case.
I have MRI result and indicate that my disc bulge press the L5 nerve root and cause my right leg pain. I cannot sit, but I can stand, walk and run no problem. I did the steroid injection recently.
My real trouble is sleep. I can lay down on my back and feel very good if I am awake. After I fall asleep about couple hours, I will be waked up by pain of my right leg. Regardless how I adjust my positions, the pain will be there and I have to get up and walk around. I can use icepack to get back sleep for couple hours and waked up again. I found I can recover from pain quicker if I slow run for couple miles and then I can go back to sleep for couple hours. In day time, I can stand and work and feel very good.
Any one has suggestion what I should do and have explanation? I am a marathon runner and I find run fast can address my pain quicker but I am not dare to run more.
