If anyone could help me on this topic that would be great! One day i was sitting in my chair playing a game and when i stood up my lower back was stiff. Didn't think anything of it unfortunately and just thought i needed to stretch so i continued my normal activities and forgot about it. Then i started to get pain down the back of my leg and it was mostly in my calf. It scared me so i ended up going to the doctors and they perscribed me steroids and meds to relieve the pain. Now going on four weeks my pain is very dull and there's still a lot of numbness feeling in my ankle and toes when i touch them, and it's not noticeable unless i stand up. I go to physical therapy and i guess it seems to be helping but im not totally sure because my therapist seems to think it's piriformus syndrome instead of a herniated disc in my back. I can do all the tests except for the straight leg test without a little pain in my leg. I can walk on my heels and toes with no issue and nothing really seems to irritate it so it's just sitting there. It switches legs from time to time also which makes me think it's not piriformus and it is a disk issue. Once again the pain is extremely bareable it's just an annoyance at the moment
