Subject: RE: loss of coordination in leg
After my positive labral tear arthrogram, I talked to a runner friend who had a labral tear and then surgery. He had symptoms for six years before the tear was discovered and I went for about 8 1/2, so we had gone through some similar things trying to figure out what was going on. I bring him up because he said one of his biggest complaints/symptoms, was a nearly constant deadness/fatigue in his quad on the leg that ended up having the labral tear. He said his quad was tired all the time and he felt like he just couldn't lift that leg when he ran. I totally understand and respect what you're saying about your doubts about the labral tears in both your legs causing your problem, but your symptom made me think of him so I just wanted to pass that on in case you rule other things out and come back to the labral tears as a possibility...
Your old posts about pinched nerves:
Also, I was rereading some of your old posts on RE: Dead Legs/Muscle Fatigue/Pinched Nerve/Bulgind Disc. What ever came of that for you? For me, a normal EMG in 2008 led to 2 spine MRIs just to check my nerve roots, and everything looked pretty normal, except a pretty small bulge, which the doc said he highly doubted would cause my leg problem. But just in case, he suggested I try spinal decompression anyway. (Which didn't help...) At the time, it was thought that though a tiny bulge might not seem like it could be a problem at all while laying flat in an MRI tube, it very well might become a problem when I ran. However, this was ruled out by a clue from my training--- It was also explained to me that when it's pinched, nuclear material is squeezed out and irritates the nerve root, causing muscular problems. BUT, a clue that this *wasn't* my problem was because I could do a workout like 6x1mile @5:45 with :30 rest, and though my leg would start to bother me at the end of each repeat, I could stop and stretch for that :30 and when I started my next interval, my leg was back to normal. (My leg would bother me sooner and sooner on each subsequent repeat, but I could at least start each interval problem free.) I was told that if my disc pinched a nerve and released nuclear material that caused my leg problem, it *would not* be able to go away in only :30.... The effect would be more lasting and I would not be able to begin the next interval feeling fine. So, 1) the MRI, 2) the 'give it a shot anyway' spinal decompression treatments that didn't reduce or eliminate any of my symptoms, and 3) the clue about how I was able to get through workouts, ruled out any nerve root issues for me. But, I was just wondering about how/if anything neural was ruled out in your case...???
