Guess What I Found Out...

NOTHING!  Yep, that's why I hate going to the doctor.  He looked at my leg again.  Then said we could do two things, either go to physical therapy and see how that helps OR do an ultrasound, see if we can find what exactly is wrong, then do injections.  Well, first off, I'm not a big fan of physical therapy.  I get bored very easily. Second, I want to know WHAT IS WRONG!!  Really, don't guess, let's find out.  Third, I have to get this leg fixed by August.  That's when I start my serious training for the marathon.

So the doctor did the ultrasound.  And guess what, found nothing.  Couldn't see anything wrong.  Just my luck.  Again, this is why I don't go to the doctor.  Always happens to me.  It hurts.  I know it hurts.  It's not in my head.  Yet can't find anything.  I sometimes wonder if doctors think you are exaggerating about the problem.  Or you're just a pansy and it really doesn't hurt as bad as you say.  All these things run thru my head as I'm sittin' there.  So tomorrow I am having an MRI done.  I told the husband I'm sure it won't show anything either.  Don't get me wrong, I want to find something.  Something to give me validation for my pain.  But the reality of it is they may not see anything which just ticks me off!

Of course, the doc said if it hurts to run, don't run.  But he knew I wouldn't stop. Plus I've ran on it this long hurting, why stop now?

One positive note today, I've lost 5 lbs since June 3!!! This calorie counting thing is so easy.  Just have to be disciplined and stick with it.


  1. I'm sorry to hear that Girl! Although I'm not are stupid! Good luck and be careful!

  2. You wonder why they even have Doctors sometimes! The prices they charge alone is enough to make you stay home! Good for you you! every little pound counts!

  3. I'm sorry you didn't get any answers. Have you been researching online at all? What do you suspect is wrong?

  4. Oh girl I totally know what your going through! I have spent the last 3 years trying to get a Dr to find the problem with my back. Even after having positive test results on my first discogram they told me nothing was wrong WTH?! As you know I finally have answers and a good Dr! You just persevere until you find a Dr that is good enough for you!
