I would call for an appointment tomorrow.

It can take weeks or even a month to get an appointment with a good orthopedic surgeon/sports medicine MD. They have protocols too. You will not a prescription for an MRI right away. They will put you on physical therapy and some sort of anti-inflammatory for a month to see if the condition gets better. If not, then you will get an MRI. Depending on the results you may need surgery and that can take months to arrange.

Orthopedic issues, especially the shoulder joint can be a "stitch in time" issue. If you don't take care of a problem sooner, it will become a bigger problem.

I would call for an appointment tomorrow.

Thanks for the advice, I know I shouldn't wait, I think part of me is waiting because I know i will have to go to PT and I just got done with PT for the second time. I swear the people there will be like family when I'm done :lol: I promise i'll call to make an appt. I talked to my primary doc. already but they didn't seem too concerned (go figure)

So guess what! I went to the Doc. and apparently I messed up my trapezius and something to do with my shoulder. He gave me meds. (daypro, which I will not take! He gave me the same thing for my ankle, didn't take it than either) and he also prescribed Physical Therapy. I have been to PT twice in the past 2 years. I feel like I live there. The people that work there must think I'm crazy lol :lol:

I have been wanting to do the personal training thing ( with Veggie Princess for sure :D ) but it would most likely be better to wait until PT is over with don't you think?
Also, I joined a gym to help get my friend motivated to get herself in shape, I just got back in town and have not gone yet, but I will as soon as I get back from visiting family out west. until than it's cardio city.

I know what you mean about feeling like a jerk ending up in the same physical therapy place over and over again. I had a knee, shoulder, then plantar fascitus problem. Sometime this year I want to go back to PT to get help evening my legs out. One side is much more developed from hobbling around with a knee problem for years. I will feel the same kind of silliness that you do.

quick update...
I missed my 1st PT appt. because I was stuck in San. Fran at the airport with a delay so I didn't end up getting into Baltimore until around 1:30am (my appt was at 8am needless to say i was a bit out of it) on top of this delay I have a cold and an ear infection! ouch! I haven't been doing any fitness related stuff much this past week (my classes start monday and I need to be better asap) When I was in Idaho I did run a bit and went snowboarding twice so I did get something in there. I bought a new pair of running shoes, this time I was fit professionally so I won't end up hurting something else :lol: I will be starting PT in Feb.

well I need to go hit some serious vit. C!!

Started this week at the new gym I joined, It's not too bad. they have nice equipment and it's not too crowded. plus, I saw a kid the other day there that used to make fun of me in school so it felt great to be like, "and what? look at me now!" I have just been doing cardio and abs until I have met with my physical therapist. Today I did and hour on the treadmill (mixed it up between running, walking fast and inclined.)

If I am not on here that much it's because Spanish class is kicking my butt! pray for me :lol:

GET IT CHECKED OUT! My shoulder injury has not gone away, even with laying off it, it never healed. It happened last June. I just can't afford to have it looked at at the moment. If you can, please do as they are a pain. I have similar problems. Hurts to sleep on it, swollen, etc. I just work through it now but it def prevents me from doping certain exercises. Keep us posted!

Congrats on the new gym; super envious of your snowboarding. I am dying to get out over here on the slopes. Wish I knew you were here visiting.

It took me how long to just realize now that your avatar is a tofu kicking a bacon slices butt!? lol, i love it :D

started PT today, i'll keep you all posted. in the mean time I am sticking to an hour of cardio 6 days a week, see if I can loose a bit of body fat. I was at 30min when I was doing weights as well. I think I needed to increase my cardio to see more results (besides alter my diet)

I am not feeling that "awesome I just worked out feeling" anymore. any suggestions on how I can get that back. maybe my cardio is not intense enough?

There is, I can't remember the name.

It involves doing intervals like a swim coach will have you do. You speed up, go hard then go slow and repeat in a sysematic way. PM me to look it up for you so I don't forget. Warning, the joints you do it on have to be strong.

Where are you going for PT?

like walking 2 min. and running 2? I try to vary my work-out by running and than walking fast at a high incline. Tonight i'll try the interval thing. I think I have a hard time on the treadmill because I have long legs and feel like I can't run right so my shins/top of feet start to hurt.

for PT I'm going to fitness forum in Annapolis, they're AWESOME! they helped me with both my back and ankle.
