Rozzie - I will do everything I can to scam out of a run adn cry if someone tells me I can't run. I am so sorry. Did I mention that the osteopath I saw last year told that I really shouldn't run anymore? As long as I keep up with my yoga, I am ok. WHile I don't want to hurt yourself if it is your back, I'm not betting against nono. Sure sounds like sciatica to me.
Cross training - I do yoga adn bike. Used to do Curves, just no tiem with runnign and yoga. Tomorrow, I will try my first swim to see if I can do a tri in July. :shocked:
So y'all, I'm jealous of those of you who bike to cross-train. I've barely even been on my Beach Cruiser bike since I had ITBS back 2 yrs ago -- 'cause ITBS is even worse for a cyclist than a runner. Mostly I walk and throw my kids in the air for cross-training. And yoga when I can (2x a week).
I have been going to Curves & I also ride a stationary bike.
I bet on sciatic nerve issues...a six pack of Yuengling.
I had a partially ruptured disk in my back from a fall and then a car accident kinda finished me off. It didn't hurt near as much as the sciatic nerve problem did...only I did have problems with it 'locking up' meaning that I could get into the jacuzzi but then sometimes couldn't get out. (same with getting in and out of car.) After the car accident I did some PT on it, but felt it was too slow going. Pretty much just waited it out and it finally got better. For me, the disk was definitely lower spine. The sciatic was definitely one side sort of center of my buttock and pushing in on it (like sleeping on a cup) was really the way to get relief. Like Carrie said, the sciatic nerve seemed to be a problem while lying down and not so much walking around. The disk seemed to freeze up at weird times and sort of dull ache at others...but not at all the same kind of pain as the sciatic nerve.
Did I tell ya the one about going to a doc for a neuroma in my foot? He had me walk and then took X rays and THEN told me that I didn't have arthritis, $500 please. You can bet what I told him...or actually what I told my X ABOUT him. There are good docs and bad docs, but for buttdocs you need a masseuse.
Awww Rozaroo I'm sorry about all you're going through. I'm so glad you managed to get in next Friday. I'm with everyone else--not a disk, it's a nerve thang. You're going to be a-ok.
Pet peeve of the day – 06-21-2008,05:48 AM
I can't tell you how many times people say to me, "How 'bout your knees?" when they see someone of my ahem, age, running.
I've been moving crap 6 working hours a day for a week-- up and down stairs, on and off trucks, big heavy boxes, small furniture, etc. -- by myself, and I have YET to have one person ask me about my knees! WTH???
For the record, my knees are freakin' KILLING ME. Running doesn't hurt my knees. Trying to be a 30 year old burly mover sure does! I had to ice my knees (both of 'em) yesterday.
I really think there's a sickness in our society when a 43 yr old woman who does something for fitness is constantly questioned and subtly discouraged from maintaining fitness. But, when she does something outrageously strenuous which won't have any long term health benefits, well, that's OK.
I meant to comment on this earlier. I love your openness to things changing in the future. I never "got it" as far as running 'till I was 40 and Carrie and Mike Scopa kept encouraging me to run. I wasn't ready until then. Some people will never be ready as it won't be their sport. My sister is one of them. She's 8 yrs. older than me, and she loves to walk and lift. She's not closed to it, simply found her thing, and is happy with it. She loves the fact that I run.
BUT, I sure wish more folks were open-minded like you to the possibility that at some point it might just be the right sport for them.
Thanks Mararoo, Carrie, Laura, Gail, CB and everyone else for all the hugs and support. I am much better emotionally today. I am just ready to get this "party started" and get on with the rehab, whatever it is. I have always been bad about waiting around for bad/not so bad news.
CB, after reading your post, and the differences in sciatica and disk pain, I am going to continue to believe it's a nerve thang too. If I am up working, moving around pain is just bothersome. Trying to sleep, sit, lay down, well, I am glad small children are not around.
So for Carrie and nono, on your Yoga, do you do a DVD, class, or just some poses you have picked up on? I was doing some Yoga thing I TIVO'd off fittv. It was a little more advanced than I was, so I NetFlixed a beginners workout, Wang Fi, or something like that. I can't remember her name but it has lots of long stretching poses, not a lot of balance stuff I can't do. My Doc says I can do Yoga as long as it doesn't hurt my area. Err, Sherlock, I am in pain all the time so I guess that's also off the list??
