A couple weeks ago I started having this awful feeling in the front part of my lower leg. Kind of felt like a shin splint. But one that never goes away. So, after doing the asinine approach- ignoring it and not taking proper care of it right away, I allowed it to get worse. I think… After a visit with the doc, it was determined that I have tendinitis.
Recovery regimen: RICE. That’s it?! No time frame. Just RICE.
So, he popped a shot of cortisone in my leg and sent me home in a boot. A BIG boot. It’s been two weeks and I’m still in recovery mode. I haven’t been good about resting it because of work now, instead of 2 weeks without dance and gym time, I’ll most likely be 4 weeks without. And let me tell you something… it is NOT easy to sit still in the city or in general for that matter. This is my nightmare.
Take home note: All of you machines out there- take care of yourselves. Stretch and take it easy sometimes. Or else you might find yourselves in the exact spot I’m in… On the couch, taking off work and bored.
Going. To. FIght. This.
