Good day all
Apologies for not reading back but i'll have a go when i have some time. I hope you've all missed me terribly - i know Lit will have for sure And i hope everyone is fit and healthy and running well.
9 weeks now since i started getting problems with my heel and in that time i've managed to get in 12 runs for a total of 71 miles. The pattern over the last 3 weeks ( which was around about the time i went to my doctor and he said he thought it could be PF even though i didn't have any of the classic symptoms ) has been 3 miles on Monday - 2 days of hobbling about - 4 days of thinking about running - repeat.
Yesterday i went to the doctor again and told him i wanted to rule out some sort of bone damage / break / stress fracture and he referred me to the hospital where i had an x-ray. No signs of any bone damage.
Last night i was lucky enough to get an appointment with my physio for today and off i went to see her at lunchtime
After a brief explanation of symptoms and a few questions she decided that PF wasn't the problem and the real issue/source of the problem was further up my body.
At this point i nearly shouted out " i'm sure Skinny on the Overdoneit ? thread has mentioned that in the past "
The problem seems to be that my pelvis is locked up / over-rotated (?) on the right side which became more evident as we went through a series of tests/stretches.
So, good news i think and she said it's definitely treatable and i may be back to normal in a few weeks.
She even said i could carry on running every day for 30 mins max and didn't expect the pain in my foot to get any worse now.
Fingers crossed !!
