I haven’t posted in days, but finally have something

This morning I had a new symptom pop up and I am rather worried about it.  I was in the kitchen during my break and getting a cup of coffee which is nothing unusual.  Then it struck.

I had this intense tingling pain in my right leg from my heel to my knee.  It lasted maybe two seconds but my leg felt like it was going to collapse out from under me.  After that my whole leg went numb.  At first I was worried but with all my symptoms not too worried since I am hodge podge of odd symptoms.

However, after sitting back down I had the same pain occur again.  I noticed that this was odd so I tried moving the toes on my right foot and the toes on my left foot moved.  I tried again and harder this time and my whole right side tensed over.  My wife said to stop doing that, but I had to see what all was going on.

After the first round I have had a few more of the tingling sensations. They feel more like electric volts up and down my leg.  Now my leg alternates between the occasional tingle sensation, numb, or my knee cap throbbing like it wants to popup out of my skin.

I’m scared cause I have a half marathon in less than seven weeks.  I always know at any day my running could be over.  I’m just always scared of that day getting here.  I always want one at last one more day of being able to run and be free

About thejollyrunner

There's so much and so little time. The two most important things to know is I suffer from a condition caused Generalized Dystonia and that I love to run. Ironically, two things that don't mix are what now defines me. I have a whole variety of other interests such as my long standing devotion to the Texas Rangers. I am also quite the hunter, fisher, and all around outdoorsman. If I had more time and less dystonia pains, I would fit in more gardening, home improvement, and probably some amatuer astronomy. And lastly, while my life is regrettably being slowed down from the dystonia, I am trying my hand at writing. I have a lot of ideas and it would be nice to see if I have what it takes to create some works worthy of publsihing.
