Hi. I have had this several times recently but it seems to be getting worse.
I run 2-3 times a week but not too far. The pain is in my buttock, it travels down my leg and I cant feel it in my thigh and calf and then goes to my foot where the pain is really bad and sometimes causes numbness. I have been in alot of pain with it today.
It is sciatica. I am off work with it at the moment - the pain just gets sooooo bad. It is not life threatening but it has become debilitating for me lately and I have been referred on. See a phsio and they can give you exercises to do in the first instance. HTH
I have something like this, I got it from taking up running. It's coming from a muscle in my back and as it travels down my leg is affecting the tendon. It's bloody sore. My calf goes 'heavy' and numb and my foot and heel are very sore.
Icing it will help and ibruprofen. I'd go to an oestopath, too.
Siatica is what happens (i.e. pain in the siatic nerve) but there are several things that can cause it. Do you stretch after running? It can be caused by a tight periformis muscle and hip flexors. For a proper diagnosis you need to see a physio.
