Well, my new insurance finally kicked in, so I finally got to see a much needed sports doctor.
I was initially looking for just a general doctor because I needed a physical for work, but ended up finding one that was both general and sports and thought- perfect!
He seemed very nice and listened as I gave him the long list of problems and what I had already tried. He ran me through the normal tests which, like always, didn't show much. From what I said and what little he could tell, he thinks its the pireformis (sp?) muscle pushing on my sciatic, which makes sense from the research I've done.
The plan is to get him my file and test results from before, and then come pack in a few weeks for a follow up. There's a treadmill in their building, so he'll have me run on it and then run me through some tests to see how they effect things. He also knows of some good PTs that are great with tough cases.
His plan is to get me back to ultras, which he thinks is totally possible, so I'm feeling optimistic!
