I have not hit any PR’s in a while.
Unfortunately, I have had a long string of injuries that don’t have a diagnosis.
I have a slap tear in my right shoulder
I have knees that constantly lock up and have arthritis flare-ups
I had an ER visit on my low back on Xmas, and another one a few weeks ago for what felt like gallbladder stones.
I have had over 50 vials of bloodwork looking for autoimmune or metabolic disorders. Everything came back clean. I am scheduling for a back MRI this week to see if something is off causing pain to shoot from my back to my knees.
Luckily I am able to train, but not 100%. A PR for me is just being able to show up and be consistent with training. I am spending a lot of my free time stretching and doing rehab work to try and minimize the pain on a daily basis.
Hopefully after a few out of state visits for a Rheumatologist, a back MRI, and multiple doctor visits I can pinpoint what has back tracked me the last 13 months.
