So I have been working hard and just hit my 20lbs lost recently (yay!). Unfortunately the last 2ish weeks I have been hindered by severe leg pain. It started after I decided to start training for the Color Run. I did a C25k app for 3 days (1 min at 6mph, 90 secs at 3mph)x8 every other day and on the third day I could barely walk after (I had done okay the previous days). My left leg from my hip to my ankle was in severe pain. I suffered with SPD during my pregnancy and it is similar to that just not as intense. I basically have to slightly drag my left leg because it hurts too much to lift up too high in a normal walking pattern.
I took some time off and exercised gently and haven't run since. I do have arthritis in my knees and my left knee has always been worse but never to this degree. Through all this my right leg is *perfectly normal*. I did a little research and it looks like I am misaligned. I have scoliosis so I am not sure if this is a permanent issue or what but my shoes are *very* unevenly worn and my left leg is about an inch longer.
Now the problem is that even just walking is making the pain unbearable. I went for a walk around the mall with my hubby last night (about 2 miles) and it was bugging me towards the end and then in the middle of the night I woke up with severe pain in my left leg and now I can barely walk again this morning.
I have been doing sooo good and I am so frustrated now because I feel like now I can't do anything but upper body exercises. I am only 28 and walking 2 miles shouldn't be causing this. I have an appointment with a chiropractor on Thursday but I am wondering if this could even possibly fix the issue? If I am even going to the right kind of doctor? Has anybody had misalignment issues? Did it ever cause anything like this and did going to the chiro fix it?
