Over the past couple of days, I’ve noticed a marked decrease in lower back discomfort and an increase in shin pain and a small bout of weird numbness in my left hammie and buttock. Kind of like before, but different. I’ve been taking it very easy and am only walking for PT, so I’m not sure what could have caused it. I’m going to chalk it up to nerves healing at this point, because I really don’t know what could have triggered it. I woke up with it on Sunday and it continued through yesterday. The nerve symptoms are not persistent and resolve when I move positions. Hopefully everything is ok back there. Recovery sure is a roller-coaster!
Update: I just went for another walk and got to thinking the shin pain might be coming from my worn out birks combined with walking 7.5k per day. I’ll switch up to proper runners today to see if it makes a difference.
