Re: Sports Drinks - useless or worse? (TV alert: Marketplace

Re: Teacher missing after run

The runner and Smitherman's partner seem to have similarities. Leave, come home. Leave again never to come home. Very sad. :(

Re: Metatarsal Stress Fracture

I had one. Taping it up helped a lot. Something I would recommend for your vacation, as you'll likely be walking around a lot. Watch out for soft sandy beaches, and uneven ground. The only other thing that helped was some sort of laser treatment my physio provided, and time. Though, yes, you would t...

Re: Carpal Tunnel or...?

I think it's stemming from something in my shoulder blade area. I have been rolling it out, splinting my wrist, and taking Aleve. I have had a much better sleep last night, and hopefully, my massage therapist can fit me in tomorrow. :)

Ugh. Up again! Ache in my trapezius then wrist, then sleepy, prickly thumb, pointer finger, middle and ring fingers. Took 2 Advil and rolled my shoulder blades. No relief.

Carpal Tunnel or...?

Something is keeping me awake at night, and it's getting worse. I wake up b/c my right hand, particularly the middle and ring finger are "asleep". There's a bit of toothache-like pain in the hand, wrist and forearm, as well as the shoulder area. Not sure if it's a pinched nerve or somethin...

Good. I'll just keep doing the assisted pullups, and work on all the other stuff to build strength in my lats, traps, deltoids and forearms!
