Wednesday morning I tried again, but same story. I couldn't even bike to work, which takes 5 minutes. I consulted my doctor who said it was over training, and that I should take 14 days off. I was/am a little skeptical because I have never heard of over training bringing on such severe pain. And I haven't experienced any of the symptoms related to it.

CoachFergie wrote:Will leave it to medical professionals to discuss your symptoms but I have seen two riders have similar pain. Both at the end of very intensive training phases where they either had 2-3 days rest post training camp or to a day to travel to an event. Both were 2-3 mins into a warm up or light ride and encountered similar pain.
With treatment both were fine to race in days one winning a Bronze medal in NZ U23 time trial 2 days later.

So, yeah ... maybe that's the issue for you?

The thing that confuses me is that in my, and the other cases, it seems to come after a period of rest.

This happened to me a year ago after I had been cycling for a couple months after 10 years off. Then almost a year to the day it's happened again, just after I'd hit the best form of my life. I usually have a couple of rest days but had to have 3 days off and a few mins into my ride my quads just felt like they were going into spasm/cramp. I have been seeing a physio to get to the bottom of it but she's flummoxed, suggesting a prolapsed disk. She's sending me for an MRI. If anyone has had any sort of diagnosis then please share. I will post again after my MRI but after a year of this on and off I am at my wits end :-(
Kinda (well, not really kinda, but sorta): that was gunna be my next point had the guy replied to my previous post, but he didn't, then i forgot about it.Stingray34 wrote:Anyone suggested a vascular issue?
A few years ago I had a kinked and entrapment popliteal artery behind my left knee. Produced very similar symptoms to the ones noted.
Several pros have had femoral artery issues, including Stuey Mate and, lately, Steven Kruiswijck.
