aight. just giving an update.
i really think the pills i was taking has prolonged this. since i got all jacked up i was taking indomethacin for the swelling and pain. and since i work 2 jobs it got me through the day. every time i woudl try to stop taking it it would be so hard to walk and everything that happened right before my foot and other stuff started to hurt. i had a sore neck that came back and i tweeked my shoulders a little. my right shoulder healed up but my left wasnt all the way done
man i would stop taking that medicine and i could barely move my arm, couldnt really walk, and couldnt turn my neck. and my kidneys would feel swollen. i went to the ER sunday night and they ran cat scans, drew blood and everything and couldnt see anything wrong.
i figured since they couldnt find anything it might just be the medicine. so i say the F with it and just stop taking the meds and the next day i wake up i felt horrible. shoulder, neck, parts of my leg. so i tell myself im just gonna ride it out. low and behold that night my ankle was so swollen it made no sense. i wake up the next morning. it went down dramitically. still hurted like hell but felt a little better. my neck and shoulder feel like they have been getting better drastically. i still feel it a little but not nearly as much. still hurts like hell to walk but it feels like it got better just a tad.
since i stopped taking the medicine, i feel more pain that i feel like my body can get rid of opposed to weird shit like my kidneys being swollen. i really think taking that med just jacked me up. i feel like i will actually be ok now withing th enext few weeks. i dont know how the tendonitis in the foot will go, but i do feel like i will be aight.
just wanted to give you guys an update. hopedully i will be bakc in the gym in the next few weeks. i will see where my body is before i mess with the 5x5 program though. i gained some weight since i been jacked up so i need to get it off asap. but i love the fact that i was squatting 3 days a week.

well i actually had some old medicine i used from when i had the reactive arthrtis. it did wonders for the pain i was in back then but it just killed my stomach. so after like 2 weeks they put me on smoething weaker called naproxin.
so since i knew how good the indometacin was i took it to help up my current injury. so it wasnt prescribed for this situation. i just took it because i knew it would get me through the day. and i just took it upon myself to not take it anymore once i went ot the ER and didnt see anything structurally wrong.
i figured my shoulder was progressing well before the pills and it felt like it was worst off once i stoped taking it. so i wanted to see for myself what would happen if i stayed off. when i went ot the ER they told me to try the narcotics they prescribed instead of the anti inflamitorys i already head. but fuck it. i never filled the prescription. whenever somethign was wrong with me i always got better and i never took pills. the only instance i can say when i actually need pills was the reactive arthritis because thats like a bacterial type of thing.
but now instead of thinking i am dieing i can norrow it down to just tendonitis in the foot and swelling in some of my joints from limping and a really bad sprained ankle. my doc appointment is next week and i see the foot doc tomorrow.
i have cruthes to help me stay off so ill be aight soon.

what up fellas. got in the gym today to see if i can do a little something. didnt want to over do it so i just did a little bit of shit.
did a pyramid with the bench
3 sets of 225x8
some curls and ab work
10 minutes on the bike
i didnt go really heavy or nothing. i did few pushups the other day. only like around 100. i just wanted to see where i was at and it felt ok. but the numbers suck from me being off for months i figured i would go back tomorrow and do a little bit of shoulder and back work. im just gonna move real slow. dont want to mess anything else up and who knows when i will be able to squat. this shit sucks. but whatever i do i will post just to show my progress and then when im ready to get back in it heavy i will start a new journal. this one is filled with a shit load of injuries and time off. i want to put together something more constant. so i will keep this for a while but when i feel like im back at it for good ill start a new one. thanks for all the support from you guys

lol i wish that did help. i would do just about anything if it helped me lol
went to the gym today to do a little bit of shit. didnt do the bike today because my foot was a sore as hell. ankle seems to make a tad bit of progress, but i just said fuck it. im seeing the doctor next week and i have some physical therapy lined up.
3 sets 145x10. wanted to see where my shoulder was at so i exploded up with the weight. everything seems good. yeah i know the numbers suck but i just want to see where im at and make sure i aint fucking nothing else up
shrugs, and a few machines that work the back, and some hammer curls.
i hate machines..........................
i miss squats :( i cant wait till im better. this shit sucks
