I have MS playing into the mix -- so that is just one level of complexity but I thought I would pose the question - scenario:
I've had pretty sharp pains (or pain sensation which could be MS too) in the mid-spine in the place of the latissimus dorsi on the left side. It's been about 2 weeks standing and has not stopped me from training (I push through it since I am accustomed to weird pain at times). I've been treating it with 800 mg. of Ibuprofen and an occasional Lortab if needed to sleep. It's worse after resting or sleeping and better when moving (and on pain meds). Sitting on the couch propped against a pillow feels best.
Mechanically, I am guessing that I either took a hard fall or I am straining it repeatedly with left side kicks like roundhouse kicks and some MS weakness in my quads (and perhaps overcompensation). I don't quite have the strength on my right side to kick like I can on my left. I
Any expertise on this type of injury. I'll be seeing my neurologist in May and will be seeing my Primary doc soon.
I do make sure to do really good stretching (gentle stretching) before kicks and training. I know I have to be ultra aware of this because of my situation with MS.
Any advice out there for certain stretches, remedies, etc.
Thanks MT! I hate the idea of resting -- I love training but know I need to be sensible.
Oh, did I say I love training
