emoticon Trying hard to combat this pain. I really want to continue with this regimen on staying on track with eating. I enjoy Spark People and all the support that is given. My problem is this: once I began the program different types of illnesses or pain has crept up. I generally can handle it as I have a high tolerance for pain but this is getting to be ridiculous.

Now I have been diagnosed with tendonitis in both arms. How could this be. Thank God its not what was originally thought (rotator cuff tear). I really do not like nor take the medicine that is prescribed so I guess I will be in pain. I am currently looking for a second opinion to get me over this hurdle.

Any suggestions. Thanks much. emoticon

    I definitely recommend physical therapy if it is an option for you.
Also if the meds they have prescribed you do not help or you do not like how they make you feel, I suggest you let them know, they can try a different approach. I always recommend a second opinion also, just to verify what is wrong.

I hope that you get to feeling better soon. If it hurts too much to workout right now, I suggest just trying to stick to the eating right now.

    Do find a way to modify your exercise and continue on you food tracking. Can you focus on core work and legs while your arms get better? emoticon
