Blah

I’ve been suffering with a variety of aches and pains lately. I’ve had migraines off and on for the past three weeks. They’ve left me feeling tired and washed out. Added to this is my regular lower back pain, which has flared up for reasons unknown.

A new problem is hip pain. When it first started a few months ago, I just figured I wasn’t stretching adequately after running, but it’s become progressively worse to the point where I’ve had to stop running altogether – since it hurts the most after I run. This makes me so sad. I love to run. It’s great exercise – good cardio, it gets me outside, and it clears my head. I’m really missing it.

I suspect that the back and hip pain, the migraines, and the shoulder and arm pain I’ve had for ages from OOS are all related. So I’ve booked in to see a chiropractor, following advice from a trusted friend. My basic assumption about this kind of practice is that it costs a lot of money for not much result – I’m a skeptic. So we shall see if it gets results. At this point I’m willing to give almost anything a try.

    Good Luck. I hate it when health issues prevent me from doing the things that I love.

    Paul had hip problems when running a few years back – chiropractor worked out good for him, but takes a few visit. Nothing to lose eh.

    Dad had migraines for years til he went to Stuart Craig in Latimer Square and his upper back was out. Ping it back in and no migraines since. A good chiropracter is worth their weight in gold. My uncle was given up on by the Nelson Hospital years ago. He was a chronic asmatic and got to the stage he was coughing up black blood plugs. They couldn’t help him. friend told him to go to a chiropracter – he did and his back was out. No asma(not right spelling) after that or plugs. Don’t be a sceptic – if they are good they will fix you and it sounds like you need one.

    No and Way!! Maybe it’s a global parasite brought on by exercise.

    In the mid of August I somehow unknowingly messed up my lower back and subsequently it affected my hips. And my wife and mother-in-law were afflicted with the same lower back/hip pain. I was gimped up for weeks. I rehabbed myself and was able to start running again at full tilt just last week.

    Well good onyah Bebe and here’s to a seedy recovery straight from the Great White North.
