This most recent checkup has been a relief. My leg hasn’t been as bad, and the doctor recommended a few weeks of physical therapy. I’m not getting an MRI just yet. He seems to think it should improve over a few weeks so we’re giving it time. Hopefully, I’ll be able to start back weightlifting eventually.
Sciatic nerve pain is no joke. From now on I’m being extra careful at the gym. Gotta work up the weight slowly.
