If anyone is looking for me ....

.... I'll be in the fallout shelter hiding from the rest of 2010!!!!!!!!!!

Took my knee to the osteopath last night. Saw my usual guy this time. Usual Guy says it's likely nothing to do with my back / sacroiliac joint / whatever, but is the knee itself. He spent a lot of time poking around in the back of my knee - which was completely hilarious NOT - then announced that it was "a bit of a mess back there" with the popliteus muscle being extremely tight. Suspicion is that it was all that stop - start - stop traffic on the way to the hospital last Tuesday night.

So I'm on rest and ice.

So much for upping the activity levels.

I am officially Not Happy.


  1. Sorry to hear that.

    My experience is that whenever I see someone different about my back they each have a different explanation! Hope the knee gets better soon.

  2. Hey Chris

    My usual guy knows me really well so I guess he knew exactly what he was looking for. He did say that I seem to specialise in presenting with atypical symptoms which doesn't help diagnosis! He reckoned I should be good to go again shortly, but definitely to lay off running for a while.



  3. No wonder he beat you at running the other day - you were injured! Hope it heals soon :-)

  4. Hi Sue

    Nah he beat me at running cos I'm short, fat and slow! Oh and I've just got wee legs lol.
