All in the head ......

Could all the glute pain/tightening that keeps recurring be all in the head? There has been no evidence of pathology of any kind. The original symptoms were consistent with iron deficiency and there was initially a good response to iron supplementation. However, since that time it's all been about tight uncomfortable muscles (predominantly the glutes) that make running hard work. Where is that coming from? The brain is capable of much, could the brain be the source of these strange symptoms? Certainly the signs are consistent with neural dysfunction. Final diagnosis - head case. Treatment - try and retrain the brain.

  1. Really was the last place to find a " cure" for next to no running. Can you just think away the problem ?

    1. Been trying to run for the last 2 years, don't think I'd call that 'next to no running'. Recurrent dodgy back and symmetrical muscle symptoms (consistent with back issues), seems to me that 'last place' could be a possibility. Can you think it away? I guess time will tell.

  2. I heard a good story on 666 about retraining the brain: http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2010/05/10/2894981.htm I'm sure it can be done, even at what you'd think is the relatively simple level of using muscles to run.

    1. Thanks ET. Yes the brain is amazing in what it can do. Both on the positive and on the negative.
