Left Leg Issues

Hey everyone..

I've been out of the saddle for 2 months now (blah!) but I've always had an issue with my leg leg kind of curling up and turning outward when I am riding.

Lately, though, my leg has been hurting when I am simply stretched out on the couch. Everything else is relaxed but I feel a pain all the way up to my hip which starts just above my ankle at my shin..

Does anyone else have experience with this? Or advice?

I am in the process of finding a chiropractor or a doctor of sorts.. but it's a bit tricky since I am not in my home turf at the moment.

Thanks

I get awful growing pain-like pains in my ankles and shins, and my hips ache sometimes. I just stretch in the most awkward way until they go away, or take a pain pill.

I haven't seen anyone about it, and it hasn't gotten much worse or better. It couldnt hurt to see a doc or chiropractor though.

Urgh doesn't it suck? I too try stretching awkwardly but nothing is reliving his leg pain unless I was like a barbie doll and you could pop my leg off and pop it back in

If I do find one (if.. since I have no clue how NZ health works) I'll let you know if it helped and what I was recommended or w/e.

Could be anything, really. Your best bet would be to find a doctor. My "growing pains" turned out to be a bone infection.

I'm actually from Europe (long story..) just living in NZ temporarily :) Rugby is a blast to play.. did so about 3 yrs ago competitively. Have a few concussions and gnarly scars :P
