Curse you knees :(

Monday, May 14, 2012

Went to the Dr today regarding my knee's lack of cooperation with me this past month or so. Every time I do something exercise worthy, I pay for several days after in knee pain and stiffness. My Dr checked them out, prescribed minimal ambulation and prescription strength ibuprofen for 2 weeks. He also had me get X-Rays, we'll find out the results later this week. Really hoping this is nothing big. He's thinking some form of degenerative arthritis, but we'll have to wait and see. I hope he can figure it out soon, because I really want to start exercising more. For now I'll stick to sit ups/crunches and arm exercises. This really bums me out, but at least I'll get things figure out so I don't hurt myself. Also, I can take the next 2 weeks to get my organization and planning for healthy living going.

It all will work out, I just have to be patient and not stress about it.

    It is a bummer trying to get where you want to go when your body is saying "NO!" but hopefully the doctor will have some answers for you :) Try some yoga or light bicycle rides that are easy on the knees but still let you get that cardio time in.
