Two Weeks

I finally went back to my family physician about my left leg pain.
I've been suffering from this pain since May.
It comes and goes, but it never COMPLETELY goes away.
I've probably been "less than smart" about putting this visit off, but what can I say?
I'm a runner. I love to run. I am also stubborn.
They took X-rays and found no fractures.
I'm scheduled for an ultrasound next week to rule out a bloodclot.
I started physical therapy last Friday. The PT says it's the posterior tibial tendon that has been bothering me.

I've been doing exercises, stretches, and ice massages to my leg. For the first time ever, I'm feeling hopeful that I'll soon be running free from pain!

Have a happy and healthy week!

So glad it's not a fracture! Just keep doing the exercises and stretching, and I'm sure you'll be fine!

I hope the pain goes away. Sucks to run in pain!

I'm glad you went to the doctors, you don't want to hurt yourself. I am like you, very stubborn and will push myself to the point where I can't move. On this journey I've learned to listen to my body! You have come so far and are doing a fantastic job, keep it up!!!
