but that's only because i'm sitting on a heating pad. right now. seriously, it's quite hot. by the end of the day yesterday my bum pain had faded quite substantially and i could walk without writhing in pain, but this morning i can hardly move again. it's very frustrating. even though the symptoms are the same as sciatica, it's not that because i had x-rays on my spine done last summer. i think it's just the performis muscle pressing against the nerve - the same one that is affected by sciatica. i guess i might as well have sciatica if the symptoms are the same. i just found this video on youtube and it's telling me it's all sciatica. i am probably genetically disposed to have this condition.
anyway, i don't want to go on and on about it. it's a shame that i avoided running ALL THESE MONTHS and then it's back for NO REASON AT ALL so i'm basically back where i started again.
i am going swimming again in a few minutes. yesterday it hurt at the beginning and then seemed to make the pain go away, so hopefully that will happen again.
tonight i am going to the LEAFS GAME! i can't wait. i have a long list of things to do today. i have to be ready to leave tomorrow before the game tonight. i am a horrible packer... it's too stressful. i always bring too much and think i'm forgetting something because usually i do forget something!
