Do you have pains in your joints? Have you ever had them examined by an orthopedist? I had discussed the pains I was having in my knees and ankles with my primary care doctor and really didn't get any advice on what could be done to make the pain go away. When I tried to train for a 5K charity race, I knew that I had to get something done because I wasn't able to make it through the first half-mile without being nearly in tears. Go to my blog to find out what I have done with the help of my orthopedist to make the pain go away so I could continue running.
