Hi. I have a sore back. I have a history of a prolapsed disc. Last year I had referred pain in my left quad for which I had physio. I have pain and tingling in my foot and calf periodically.
I joined a running group a week ago. The runs I found quite fast and challenging. I went for a long run on Sunday.
I have had left quad pain again followed by pain on my right hand side underneath my ribs.
I'm unsure whether to see a doctor or not. My doctor is currently away but will be back next week. Not sure whether I actually need to see someone.
My concerns are:
What do I do about my back? I've been doing the back exercises the physio gave me last year (which don't seem to be helping a lot). I was taking volatren tablets I had been given but have run out. Should I be taking more?
How long am I likely going to need off running?
I think some of the other pain I was having was due to reflux and possible gallstones. Not sure. It feels better now.
