Pulsing / stinging lower left
I went to the doctor about 2 months ago, he said I just strained my back, gave me an anti inflammatory to take for a month, told me not to do any strenuous exercise and check back in a month if I was still having pain. A month went by, took the medicine didn't do any strenuous exercise, I went back but my pain had changed. I wouldn't say it was even a pain at this point just more of an annoyance, a seemingly random pulsing / stinging sensation right where I had initially hurt myself. Doctor gave me physical therapy for twice a week for three weeks and took an X-ray, which came out fine. I'm through to week three of PT, all the exercises are super easy and don't cause me any pain while doing them but the random stinging remains.
Is this normal healing for a strain? I'm 22 in very good health. Not being able to exercise for three month now is really frustrating!
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated!
