Update September 8, 2008

Went to the doc (different one!) yesterday. I have shin splints. They prescribed me an NSAID (non-steroid anti-inflammatory drug), which is much kinder to my poor little Red-Haired Girls belly. It’s nice too because I only have to take it twice a day rather than every six hours or whatever. They suggested I wrap my arches to help support them and to get new running shoes (the cause of my shin splints!).

Today my swelling is down some–thanks to the NSAID, and I am having much less pain–thanks to the wrapped arches. YAY! I’m not allowed to exercise at all for the next two weeks (at least). Then I am to start slooooowly with some walking which I can work up to running as it feels right. I’m definetely going to go slower this time.

Now I just have to find the money to buy some new running shoes! =) Donations welcome! **wink**

    About 3 or 3 1/2 years ago, I fell down two steps. I landed funny on my right foot and caused some pretty serious injury. X-rays said no breakage, but docs weren’t completely sure because of the swelling. They knew I had at least pulled and ripped tendons. They did a second X-ray but never gave me the results. However, I think it was actually broken, as now it is…not quite the right shape towards my arch.

    So that’s the story.
