So I have a new issue popping up. It also happens that I’m trying out a new saddle. I’m definitely on high alert then maybe it’s just not working for me although and every other way I feel good in it. So I’m not totally convinced that I’m just not having physical issues in general.
I’m having this numbness or vibration feeling in the muscle and basically my right buttock lol. It’s not painful in any way just a bit distracting and annoying.
Tonight I rode just a few minutes and it seems to coincide with the posting trot more than anything. Which I find pretty weird… I did try a different saddle immediately after which was different everywhere. I hated riding in it and I still had that feeling but maybe riding in the first saddle started up.
I’m wondering about sciatica nerve or piriformis syndrome which I guess is like a tightening of the muscle near the sciatica nerve.
It sure is a bummer to be dealing with this with this saddle on trial. Of course maybe the saddle is the cause but I’m not convinced yet.
I figured I would put in a call to my doctor too. I do have Elher Delanos syndrome which causes all kinds of wacky stuff to happen with my body. And my dad has a history of some pretty gnarly back issues… I hope they are not genetic but I want to be surprised if they were. Fingers crossed. If I had to choose I would hope that I just needed a different saddle!!
