enjoying the sun

I went for my first sunny ride of the new year yesterday. It was a pleasant quiet hour long ride on my recumbent. It’s about to rain more, so I’ll have to take advantage of the sunshine while I can. On days with heavy rain I am working out in my indoor gym or using my exercise bike. In light rain, I still go out with my rain gear and my utility bike, which has fenders.

All the rain has made it nice and green around here.

sciatica follow-up

I saw my doctor late last week about pain in my right leg, and after poking, prodding, and trying to see what movements caused the pain, she came up with a preliminary diagnosis that it was sacroiliac ( There is a problem in “SI”) ) combined. This can cause pain that radiates down the leg, similar to sciatica. She is sending me for X-rays and MRI tomorrow for further evaluation and to rule out other possibilities like spinal problems. She doesn’t think it’s piriformis syndrome this time, which I’ve had in the past. Turns out that doing all the PT exercises I learned earlier didn’t help much. He has also referred me for PT on the current issue which will start from 10th. In the meantime, I’ve been practicing what I’ve learned on the web for SI dysfunction and using heat and cold. It seems to be helping some so I hope professional PT helps even more. Fortunately, biking is good for the SI joint as long as I don’t overdo it, so I can stay active while it’s rehabbing.
