        Hearing him talk about not getting treated due to lack of insurance makes me glad to be British and have the NHS.

            ROBERT! These stories are horrific. Your legs were numb for 2 months and you kept on training? You could have been paralyzed from further injuring yourself. I don't have insurance either and it sucks. Every American should be able to have insurance but what is a joke is 100 % coverage insurance(Medicaid) is given people who refuse to work and rich people can obviously afgord ins. so only the working class struggles to pay for ins. and ginormous medical bills. Aaaaaaggghhh!

              Don’t need an mri for herniated discs. It’s precisely as he describes the symptoms. They never ever ever go away.

                This guy reminds me of when i started deadlifting. I brought iron plates that were shorter than usual olympic plates(much more pressure on the back) and started deadlifting in my home ,very uneven surface with absolutely no experience or knowledge. Pulled 220 easily,got overconfident. So pulled 265,easy. So went for 308,wasnt pretty but i did it. So pulled 353. I did complete the lift out of ego but i got the same thing Robert had-couldnt move for 2 months. Im lucky i didnt slip a disc or two.
                For reference i was 17,6'1",165-170 range and not athletic. That was basically my first year working out.

                      I did that to mine i believe doing a heavy deadlift,well heavy for me,not 800 lbs,475 and my side did something and i heard a pop and now when i lay down i get a pinch in my left side and it shoots down into my legs and causes a numbing.
