    Numbing, tingling pain in my left leg after SPIN class

    I got this feeling in my left leg after SPIN class last night. Naproxen didn't help, only sleep did. It felt bad enough that I had to lie down because my leg might give out. It went from my lower back, down my leg to my kneecap.

    Does anyone know what that might be? Sciatica? Disk injury? Seems OK now but my lower back is a little sore.

    Kind of sounds like Sciatica but it doesn't usually go down to the knee cap. It typically radiates down the back of the leg.

    You have a problem. Whether it is just from not having the Spinner set up right or you have done some damage- Get it sorted by a doctor or a sports physio. I would reckon on the physio first as they probably know more about sport problems than doctors.

    Definately see a doctor. I have an MRI scheduled in June for both of my knees.

    While spinning is a good aerobic activity, I'm not a big fan as some instructors like to have people turn to zero resistance on the bike. I believe this creates problems in the knees as the lack of resistance pulls the legs rather than the leg pushing the pedal.

    Nothing beats hitting the road !!
