piriformis or sciatica
Background: I've had terrible sciatica over the past two years, have worked very hard to get rid of it permanently, and thought I had. I had recently taken a month off of riding, until the weather got better, but had been keeping up my flexibility, cardio and core strength doing other stuff, absolutely no sciatic pain. I've finally lost 35 pounds over the past 6 months which could have been a big part of the problem.
Question: I just rode the trainer for the first time in over a month last night and this morning I feel the slightest tension in my a**. I went kinda hard but no overly. Is cycling a cause of piriformis, sciatica? Is it possibly a fit issue? Does anyone else have this problem? It was so painful, I'm probably over analyzing, I just don't want it back.
