Damn... the same thing just happened to me. Complete with tingling down the right quad. First stop, chiropractic.
Hope you heal up fast!

As noted in my unanswered plea for any help with Psoas (hip flexor) problems- the one thing I have learned from a year of this is that rehab must happen quickly, and thoroughly. My ART guy has me on a few standard hip flexor stretches, which I do every hour. It is helping a ton. Looking through the journals (my training logs) I can see what exercises and stretches are missing when this flares up- they will not be left out in the future!

Lastly, see someone and get your posture checked out. That's a big problem. I sit poorly and sleep outright wrong for what ails me. Working on it.

Thanks for the comment, guys.

Bulging or herniated disc sounds serious... Should I go get checked out by a doctor?

According to WebMD 50% of people recover within a month... It's been almost two months for me. I was wondering how quickly and how accurately a doctor can diagnose a herniated disc? If I should go to the doctor to check things out or if I should just continue my rehab, assuming that a herniated disc is the case?

Whether you choose to go mainstream or alternative/complementary, you should at least go see a professional soon to get a better idea of what you are dealing with here.

Thanks a ton for the replies, Dr. G. I'll go see a doctor first thing next week.
