Good News & Bad News

GOOD NEWS!!  I don’t have a stress fracture!! Yay!!  Yippee!!  Hooray!!  I’m so happy!!  I was really worried about that.  I didn’t want to have to be off for a long time, and I didn’t want to have to worry about it coming right back.  So, I am really relieved.

I went in this morning for my MRI and I was really nervous.  I don’t know why.  It wasn’t a big deal, and I have done one before.  I think it was just that I was so worried about the results.

They asked me a ton of questions, and then put me on a small metal bed that slid me into the machine.  They had to Velcro my legs together so I wouldn’t move them.  That just made me want to move them even more.  Once they started it, it took a little over an hour.  I had a really hard time being still.  When I lay down, especially to go to sleep, my muscles start twitching.  The longer I laid there the more they were twitching.  I couldn’t stop them!

Bad News – Now we have to figure out what is causing all of the pain, and how long it will be until I can run again. I have been really nervous that an MRI wouldn’t show anything, that’s one reason why I’ve put it off so long.  And, that’s exactly what happened!  All it showed was a lot of inflammation. (I think they made a mistake on my medicine!)

So, we are going to try some steroids and the doctor is going to get me some insoles.  I still can’t run for a few weeks, but it’s not near as bad as what I was thinking it might be.  We are hoping that if I continue to stay off of it, and give the steroids a chance to work, then it will totally heal.

I was talking to a friend today, and I told her I feel like I’m on edge all the time and she pointed out that I haven’t been able to run for a couple of weeks.  I realized that’s exactly what it is!  I feel so good when I’m running, and I am really hating this that I have to sit all the time!

Hopefully in a few more weeks, I can get back to posting about running! ( I miss it!!)
