a growing lump in my right elbow forced me to make a trip into my family doctor’s office. the bump expanded so much, into something i believe to be a tumor. it bothers me so much, i would be in much pain every time i rest my elbow on something. i consistently press on it thinking it would flatten out, but so far that doesn’t seem like it’s working. my doctor referred me for an ultrasound and also got me an xray referral for my ankle. we’ll figure out what it is first, but she doesn’t suggest i trade in the cyst for a scar
my ankle was obviously not in good working form so getting it checked up because i can’t afford to have any time off. the faster i fix it, the faster i’m on the roundoff back tucks again. the reason i love my physio is he’s good at what he does – fixing my injuries since highschool. he knows me so well that every time i visit, he would work his magic on my many failing body parts and get me back to my sports in a jiffy. this was time no different. it’s amazing how much better my ankle felt after he did some adjustments
late into the office because i had to go in for another regular physio checkup. what was suppose to be just stretching became rolling, and from rolling it became dynamic exercises. it seems i’m always doing exercise like i’m in circus school. as usual he went through my standard list of ankle, hip, back, neck, shoulder and thumb, and then more. i had no idea my knee cap was out of alignment, again. my knee cap has been stable in the recent months but clearly needed a little attention today. fun fact is i’ve been a part of my physio clinics existence for fourteen of the twenty years.
saturdays are sweatpants and frees kind of day because i’m in a judge free zone. running around all day, literally, and it was a very brisk run that also included an eye appointment and none other than taekwondo. i’m experiencing some dryness and haze so will require another follow up appointment sooner than expected. it’s not alarming, but not what i wanted to hear
getting my hand checked out gives everyone a peace of mind, but knowing it’s more serious than i thought isn’t what i wanted. he was not surprised of another new injury plus my preexisting list of injured body parts. to my physio’s dismay, he told me not one, not two, but three tendons were sprained. i guess the pain i felt was real but forcing it very hard wishfully thinking the pain isn’t real. having high pain tolerance is good but it does come back to bite me. also got my knee and hip adjusted as per usual and wasn’t expecting my knee cap to be out as well. aside from my knee, he was quite happy with the shape i was in
i have always detested going to the dentist as a kid and i still do to this day. the constant rattling and ringing of the machine bothers my eardrums even well after i leave the office. even well after i leave the office. and at the end of sixty minutes, my dentist will tell me how many cavities i have. being calcium deficient means i can’t do much to avoid cavities
a morning physio appointment puts restrictions on physical activities for the rest of the day. the check up was good, but i was terrible at what i did; not impressed with how i did the exercises i was assigned. the good news is he said i recovered well and has little issue with me to resuming most of my activities. maybe the weather change overnight is the cause of my headache and dry throat. i will just sleep it off and hope i will be better tomorrow
