Last August I had a painful run that culminated in getting up out of my chair at work later in the day and falling flat on my face
After 6 months of testing, poor and missed diagnosis, I finally found someone (by accident) who KNEW that I had a torn labrum. During that whole fiasco my (fabulous) Physical Therapist had an inkling that either it was a back issue or there was more than one thing going on.
I had surgery (laproscopic labrum debridement) in February I was back to 60-70 miles per week by the end of June. One evening of a long run on pavement ended it all - I am now TOTALLY UNABLE to run, as the pain and feeling of dragging my leg is unbearable, even with heavy doses of Advil.
I have had debilitating pain in my right inner thigh upon every heel strike; it feels like a metal rod is firing up between my hip/groin and my knee (inner thigh section). Doc originally thought this was a post-labrum tear surgery complication, possibly a groin strain, but the PT believes it is lower back related (possibly L2/L3/L4) and probably was part of the original injury. I went back for another PT "second opinion" last night who took some videos, did some tests and asked a LOT of questions... Between the two of them they are about 95% sure now that it involves the Femoral Nerve. So I guess Sciatica is not the correct term for it, but it does seem similar. Has anyone had Femoral Nerve pain like this? Has anyone experienced this?
Any help or experiences appreciated!
