RE: Chronic anterior compartment syndrome
Yes. Extreme pain and a feeling of fullness in my anterior compartment while running, normally about two miles into any run at any pace. My feet would slowly go numb as the blood supply was cut off. Things were back to normal 30-60 minutes after the run. Compartment syndrome is not something you can "power through", because you will quickly grind to a halt from pain and the inability to put your heel on the ground first before the ball of your foot.
I did long ice baths up to my knees for a month before I discovered I had it. Once I realized it, I went to the docs, got the pressure test done which confirmed it, and was two days away from surgery when I decided that I needed to take a long break. After six months of no running, a friend recommended me to one of the top ART guys in the area. Two months of advanced chiropractics and microcurrent technology fixed the problem.
