Over the past week I have been doing a bit of research…
Research that is not in and of itself a pain in the arss but is in fact research on a pain in the arss
it seems.. that Judi and I both are suffering with Piriformis syndrome…
It started for Judi about a year ago… and for me 6 months or so ago. When it started I thought it was just normal soreness… a slight hamstring issue due to a change in my running gait.. I just ignored it like I do for most of my aches and pains but… this time it did not just go away
And now…for me it has gotten to the point of debilitation
Running = Pain from my buttcheeks radiating down to my calf in both legs… I can’t generate much power… I have to keep a short stride… and the speed is just not there
Sitting = discomfort in the area as well… I have even contemplated a standing type desk.
And picking stuff up off of the floor… oh, that has been difficult for quite some time now… and makes me feel like an old man
I’ve started doing research/rehab and treatment as I, once again, try and fix up this old body… but all that said..
Anecdotes and/or antidotes welcome…
I’d love to hear some success stories
