My Leg is Killing Me!
So, I woke up today with trobbing, dull pain in my left leg; right around my vastus medialus. I noticed redness as well. The pain and redness appears to be following a vein. Anyway, it hurt like h*ll to bend my leg and walk, etc. So I went to see a doctor and he tells me that it could be a couple of things, but it is likely "phlebitis". This is apparently the swelling or inflamation of the vein, sometimes caused by a blood clot. So the doc throws me on Naproxen 375 and now I am dizzy as hell. He tells me I need to stay on the Naproxen for at least 1 week. I obviously cannot train legs with this condition as it may make things worse and would hurt like a MOFO. I am wondering if I can train at all being this dizzy. So, it looks like my training for the next 2 weeks is out the window...one week on this anti-inflamatory and then I have an appointment to get a vascectomy next week ! That is probably another week off! Oh, well, I guess 2 weeks off won't hurt me too bad and obviously my health is more important to me than my training. I am not cycling right now so all should be good...I intend to hit up a cycle right after I recover from the snipping

Take the time off and heal. Come back strong... it won't be a big deal in the overall picture of things.
