Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To

Image
Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone who might not have already heard. I went last week for a follow-up. I was actually in a lot of pain, as much pain as when the injury began. The x-ray did not show any fractures, BUT I was told that I could still have a fracture. I will need a bone scan or MRI to completely rule out any fractures. What did show up, however,

I'm Sorry But I'm Injured And I Need To Whine

I apologize in advance, I really do. But I just need to whine - just a little. I am SOOOOOOOOOO over being injured. In fact, I'm so over being injured year after year. Since the year after my son was born, every Winter I have been injured. First it was 3 stress fractures in my foot after my 1st half, then it was tendonitis, then it was a torn calf muscle, and now it's a hamstring injury with a side of massive knee pain from trying to cross train. And I was just starting to really enjoy spin class!

I'm writing this with an ice pack on my knee.
And yeah, I've shed a few tears this afternoon - not so much from pain, but from sheer frustration.

I have a call into physical therapy. (I called after hours tonight. So I'm not sure how long it will take for them to get back to me). I don't know if I can get in without a dr's referral. I'm not sure where to start. But I guess I have to start by asking questions.

But I'm frustrated... I was just getting back into the groove of early morning workouts and my mental health was much improved. But it looks like I won't be going to spin class in the am. I'm just hoping I can walk without pain. Because by this afternoon, well I'm limping.

Anyway, just needed to vent for a moment. Thanks for listening to me whine.

I'll let you know what happens with PT/Dr appointments as soon as I figure it out!

  1. Have you thought about working with a trainer? I've had my share of injuries...then last year I went to work with my CrossFit trainer ( who is also a corrective exercise specialist). OMG what a difference she's made in my life. I've been running for over 20 years and this was the best year, running-wise, of my life.
