How are you today? Post your ailments here

Seeing as the average age of the forum regulars is ever on the increase (even the youngsters are knocking on) and the elderly enjoy a good moan about their health but no one actually listens or cares, I thought it my be cathartic to post ones daily ailments and maybe give your operational percentage. Obviously anything potentially serious needs a professional diagnosis.

So, how are you today? 😃

    Thanks for asking 👍 Currently operating at about 75% I would say. Right shoulder and ankle still sore after an argument with some very unpleasant stairs and weirdly two on my toes don’t seem to be getting on anymore. I feel constant friction but there’s no physical sign that they are rubbing together 😕 Oh well, onwards and upwards.

    Tore a muscle in my neck, can't look left very easily. Lingering upper calf strain, seems to be irritating hamstring or glutes. Hard to say. Usual arthritis in ankle. So actually pretty good.

    Still recovering from whiplash and arm cast is rubbing my surgery wound, plus the ligaments are still sore from starting work again.

    Back to running again after a two week post-marathon break so aching from the back down. Also, fresh skin on my elbow following a wound infection is itching.

    Ouch. Bike accident?

    Sore lower back has returned overnight without explanation. The frustration at not being able to do things (and in this case the lack of sleep) is worse than the pain.

    Elbows have both been sore for a few weeks for reasons unknown.

    Where about on the elbow? Does any exercise involve your elbow joints?

    I forgot about my own wrist. Can't take me doing dips at the moment, and feathering the oar with my left hand makes it a bit sore.

    But I really do feel great.

    Whatever ligament goes over the bony bit that sticks out on the side. Cycling and core work uses elbows, although there's not been much of either lately.

    I'll confirm when fully awake, but my permanent back ache is a little worse than usual. Wrist is still painful and stiff, need to start on my physio exercises. Back to see the consultant end of next week then I find out if I need surgery. Hopefully not as movement is coming back and i can finally ride a bike a short distance again. Lower legs a little stiff after yesterday's run, I still hate running.

    Lingering dull ache, and slight stiffness, in the obturator internus; it hasn't felt as good as the other side for about 3 years following a hamstring injury, which, I believe, wasn't helped by having tight hip flexors.

    Have you tried a foam roller on your forearms and soft tissue of elbows? I often get elbow gip if doing pull ups regularly and a hard couple of mins with a knobbly foam
    roller always works for me.

    I have an in-growing toe-nail.

    My knees sometimes get a bit stiff and clicky. It's not all the time. My wife (a vet) has diagnosed me with osteoarthiritis. I need to see my Dr.

  • On the plus side... above ground and still have a pulse. And for now, my left foot feels good.

    On the minus side... everything else hurts to some degree.

    Ran a 5k 3 days ago - it was part of a challenge with my football team so pushed it as fast as I could - still hobbling.

    Nerve problem in my neck /shoulder still very slightly playing up - not anything like it was but can feel it doing pull ups, tinnitus slightly more noticeable than usual.

    Apart from that lack of cycling means I'm sure I've put on weight but the scales aren't working.

    Pretty good for my age as nothing actually wrong. My right shoulder never quite got back to the same level of strength as my left after tearing my supraspinatus tendon 3 years ago, but I don't notice that unless I'm doing some weights.

    Oh and my knees ache if I run for too long, but there's an easy solution to that...

    Never fully-recovered torn adductor which means I stopped playing football 12yrs ago and can't even kick a ball back to the lads playing Sunday League;
    Fragile knee from an injury when I was ~14;
    Knackered hip from years of running;
    Anxiety;
    Depression;
    Stress; and
    Slept funny two nights ago so sore neck/shoulder.

    But...

    More a case of still being able to cycle despite all the injuries from other sports.

    Sorry Stevo, you are right.

    I blame Boris and the Tories for having nothing to moan about.

    That better? ☺️

    I promise to try my best to pick up some minor injury to moan about.
