2 miles @ work (11:24)

11 Feb

Comments: My family doctor thinks I pulled a muscle (rectus abdominis) and that’s why I hurt (I do not agree), and I was too flustered to say anything. He suggested physical therapy. My Gyno doesn’t know why the left pelvis/ovary area is still sore, so he’s referring me to a specialist. I asked him if it is ok for me to run and he said yes unless the pain gets worse.

I was in moderate pain on Saturday and Sunday, it eased up Sunday afternoon. So today I went for a run; I needed to get out and didn’t let cold weather stop me. I enjoyed the run and hope to do it again soon. We are suppose to get 3 to 7 inches of snow tonight through tomorrow so I don’t think I’ll be running then (no, I don’t have skies).

Nancy, thank you for your comment on pain leading to depression, I didn’t even think of that. Make so much sense though. So now when I get down I try to tell myself that there are people out there who are in worse shape then me and that I should stop feeling sorry for myself! 🙂 And it helps that I have a very supportive husband! All the support I have received, be in via blog on irl is appreciated.

    Well, it is just something to be aware of. If you find that you can’t pull yourself out of it, then you know to get help, but I’m guessing you are a long way from that. Is anything effective on this pain? aspirin, tylenol, ibuprofen? I’m sorry for your frustration over not getting good answers. It is so hard when often the way we figure out what something is, is to eliminate everything it is not. I have faith they/you will get this nailed down eventually. Hang in there.
