Day 178

My legs! My legs! I can't feel my legs!!

Um, yes I can. That's the problem. My knees are shot. I feel as though I need a double knee reconstruction. What is that all about?! No seriously, I need to know - what is that about?

I haven't injured myself to my knowledge. Could it be a residual recovery issue from the Relay For Life run? But if so, why didn't I feel the pain during (or at least directly after) the event? Perhaps this exercise caper isn't all that wise after all. Could it be fibromyalgia pain? There is a low pressure system right now and I am in fibro fog but I've never had targetted pain like this before. Or could it just be wear and tear on my poor limbs from being middle aged? Is this what it's like to be deep fried fruit?

I don't know what it is, but I am wishing I didn't have so many freakin stairs in my house.

    It'll ease by Good Friday?

  3. Ironically, my right knee has been bothering me so much I haven't been able to run for two days. I had NO injury, yet it's swollen and throbbing! Is this what it's like to get old? Yikes!

  4. Lay on the sofa and demand everyone around you brings you food and drinks. Do this for three days.

  5. Ahhh - thanks so much for your comments. Very refreshing! I am glad I am not the only one experiencing seemingly random pain, and I am totally going to take Vicki's advice. And if you are actually right Lucy then my hat will go off to you :) Happy Easter!
