From what I've read, "walking it off" isn't really a remedy. Well, that certainly explains why the shooting pain increased after a nice jaunt around the town....who knew????? I've started on a little regiment of gentle yoga to stretch everything out & it's helped so much. I'm still not perfect, but I'm getting there. It was crazy how much better I felt after my first little yoga session. I used to do yoga several times a week, but for some reason, I slowly stopped....now I realize how much better I felt when I was stretched & flexible. It's still too early for a full yoga routine, but I'm happy to settle onto my purple yoga mat in my bedroom for 15 minutes & slowly pull the pins & needles out of my back & leg.
Hopefully I'll be back with new thoughts, ideas & pieces very soon.
