RainyCoast Posted June 9, 2017 Share Posted June 9, 2017 i recently started working out again after having completely neglected exercise for like the past three years. i thought it'd be very difficult to get back in shape, but i am pleasantly surprised with my progress so far. early this morning i did a full body workout and some kickboxing. nothing too advanced. it felt great. i didn't feel like i was injuring anything, but my right leg felt a bit more sore. i figured it is possible i step out with my right leg more often, although i doubt, since i'm ambidextrous and my right side isn't much stronger than the left. anyways. this evening my right knee and calf felt tight. they look swollen. it's not extreme, but the calf is obviously bigger than the left one. especially the outside of the calf. that part itches too and feels warm and red, but i have been scratching the itch. my ankle and foot look fine (i had a nasty right foot injury this winter, that left the arch of my foot lower than it was. not sure whether that could have something to do with it). i don't think i've had too much salt. i mostly eat pretty healthy (at least i do now). i am 32, normal weight, history of neuroboreliosis, but pretty healthy now. not on any medication. i gave up jogging when i had neuroboreliosis because it made my knees hurt and swell. both knees. no itching or redness, or uneven swelling. this feels different. did i just put too much strain on the leg? this happens to you folk, right? i'm so friggin scared of C.L.O.T.S. and DVT and cardiovascular stuff in general. i'm terrified. i will keep the leg elevated and cooled, and see if that helps. i would hate to slow down or skip my workouts. do i need to see a doctor? please tell me this is normal workout sh*t, i'm so done with C-words. it's 2.30 am here and i can't sleep because i have worked myself up with this.
