"Insert a very very VERY bad swear word here"

My ITB started to hurt last night. I woke up in the middle of the night couple times because it hurt and it kept bothering throughout the day today.
It does not hurt when I ice it though probably because I tend to freeze all my nerves (2 years ago I caused myself a serious frostbite. It looked like a huge blister at first and later like a nasty bruise and I had no feeling in that spot for couple weeks).

Come on! It has not been hurting for past two weeks and I was able to run painlessly so what's the deal?!?

Maybe it is just a one day thing....


  1. i'm sorry :( i understand how you are feeling :(

  2. There's got to be something biomechanical going on with you if that IT band keeps coming back... you're going to have to get to the root cause if it rather than just putting a band-aid on it if you want to be fixed for good. Core strength, hip strength, glutes, etc... any chance you have insurance that will let you see a good PT?

  3. I think it is worth it to get a pair of good shoes.
    Sorry about this. I would use lots of 4 letter words, too:)

  4. I have tried a pair of good running shoes. Nothing helps:(
