getting worse

Yesterday I did 45 min on the elliptical. It felt fine, and my piriformis felt better. So today I tried a repeat of Saturday's 3 min walk/1.5 min RW, but this time on the treadmill instead of outside. I focused so hard on keeping good technique. It hurt though. Usually the pain would diminish by the time I finished each 1.5 min RW segment, and it didn't hurt at all on the walk segments. But now, several hours later, it's really bothering me. Just a dull ache all the time; I'm now sitting on a tennis ball to try and loosen it up.

Back to square one I guess. I have PT tomorrow.

Later today I'll go to the gym to get some cardio and to do my PT exercises.

Yikes! I just caught up on your blog and I see you've had a run (or a walk?) of bad luck lately. I am so sorry. :-( It sucks especially during winter when things are blah anyway. Hopefully focusing on PT will help. Feel better soon.

The piriformis seems to act this way; you get a painful flare up...then it goes away....then it has the old dull ache.
