I was working out and felt the burn right away in the left leg. The next day my left leg swelled up and made the back pain worse. I went to chiropractor but only made it worse. I went to regular doctor and she gave me muscle relaxers which was only temp. Went to ER due to pain was given more muscle relaxers and lidocaine patches and like the other only temp relief.
