POST-TRAUMATIC PAIN


It has been over a week since my bike crash and I thought besides a little soreness in my neck and left. rib that I was fine. My run and bike felt great over the weekend. Today at lunch I went down to the Shape Shop for an arm and ab workout. I was starting to crunches with a medicine ball then I felt it---where there had been a small ache became a big ouch. I immediately stopped the workout and left.

Tonight I went for a short bike. I felt ok but that one rib hurt when I took in a big breath. Then I hit a bump---YOWIE!!!. I'm not getting it checked out because they won't do anything but I just needed to complain about it. Thanks for listening.

BIKE : 6 miles-MTB.
Waddling while gentle breathing...............

I told you so! It always happens. You think you will be okay and then wham! Out of no where, it seems, something catches you off guard. That is why I am taking it completely serious with this ankle thing. I don't want a surprise sometime in January! Hopefully you can get this checked out and under control before your next event!

Could be you just need another day or so of rest. Hope you keep progressing

Ouch!!

Yeah, I'd guess there will be some residual issues...hope they clear up for you. Patience will probably be rewarded...hang in there!!!
