Barbara, your comments are so familiar to most of us. I crossed my eyes at my PT and everyone else a year ago that said I needed to rest. I simply could not imagine giving up (even temporarily) sports like walking, running and aerobics. Now, I cannot walk at all for exercise. I can only do what is absolutely necessary on my feet, for as little time as possible.

You WILL NOT regret taking it easy for a few weeks to see if you can get things under control. You WILL regret it forever if you do something to make your condition worse and/or permanent.

Posters to this board certainly don't know everything - and sometimes we don't know much at all....but this is one thing many of us know FOR SURE.
