Okay so around the end of July, I was lifting heavy weight for the deadlift right? 1st set, no problem, did it okay. 2nd set, felt popping in the lower back and sudden pain and could barely move, let alone workout, enough to where i had to go to a doctor to check it out. He couldn't diagnose it properly because i didn't wanna pay for an MRI, but did get an x-ray and everything looked fine.
Almost 9 months later, I'm back in the gym, lifting heavy weight again, albeit much more carefully and more proper technique. Now all I have is some pain near the right side of my glute that flares whenever i do a lot of activity, or use my lower back a lot. Not so much in my left side, but it does flare up when I'm laying or sitting in an awkward position. Oh and the trunk of my back sometimes feels like it's being strained, but thats been getting better. And it hurts to run on the treadmill or track and sprint.
Just wanna know what my diagnosis is? I've found doing a yoga workout once a week, and stretching after a workout have been keeping some of the pain down, but still it persists. It feels like after another month I should be back to where i was before. Just wanna know what was wrong and how I could relieve it so if it happens again i don't have to spend a couple months out of the gym again?
