Back from the doctor. He doesn't think it's a stress fracture. He did not take an xray or suggest an MRI. I'm a bit worried. I've never seen this guy before. And he's not an orthopedist. Does he know what he's talking about? He suggested taking an anti inflammatory for 3 days and trying to run on flat ground, not hills. Easier said than done around here. He said not running until I was pain free would be the best option but he didn't seem to think running would cause any more damage. This is where I'm concerned. I'm super excited he said I could run. But what if he's wrong?? I've always heard shin splints can turn into stress fractures. But....I've never gone to medical school. I'm assuming this guy did, I didn't check. I'm not sure what to do.
One more good thing about the doctor visit...I am an inch taller than I thought (So much taller than you, Kelly!) and I've lost 3 pounds since I last checked :) To celebrate (not really) Brian and I took Little Dude out to lunch. I ate a 3 pound burger.
Right now I'm going to take a nap. Pnut had a nightmare last night so I spent a good part of the early morning hours in her twin bed.
