|**admitted then released....|
i was glad enough to work near a hospital where i can have a check-up during my lunch break. i told the Dr my story (i.e. being a runner), he did some little leg movement and advised me that i have an iliotibial band syndrome or ITBS for short or IT band pain. he said that this is a very common injury for most runners. he requested an x-ray just to make sure that there were no bone fracture.
i am glad that it's nothing serious but i'm just a bit bummed out the fact that i am sidelined - no running - for about a week. currently i am in training mode and this is not helping me at all.
oh well, i guess i just have to relax for now.....as the DR prescribe.
