Here is the question or actually more of a statement. I'm freaked out!
Short Summary, I transferred jobs from Florida to Georgia for an Ex-Girlfriend a few years ago. I was starting to get older lets say around mid twenties and I needed more energy. I started working out like crazy and felt like I can take over the world. Probably got to 195-200 lbs in physical weight which felt great.
Then we broke up I switched jobs again and have been all over the place up and down trying to remain in shape.
Then like always all of a sudden I found a new lady and got married. She is wonderful but a few years later I got into some kind of small depression and was playing games online staying up late eating pizza and really crashed and burned.
I went back to college and still in college making straight A's; but between the small depression hit and having to make straight A's pressure.
I think I injury my right hand towards the knuckles and bottom right toe. The toe problem I have always had for over ten years I think it is a small bone spur or something that always comes on goes; but lately with my toe and my hand it is getting really worse when I worked out.
The hand could have been from being on the computer too much from my job and from when I got home. And the toe thing I am just unsure. The only difference is now offcourse is that the pain is not going away.
So ofocurse I had a relevation and wanted to power house out of this rut. I don't know what happened but its like I finally found the runners high. I mean I can literally for my brain to do anything and I will do it.
I bought the 910XT Garmin watch and literally have been tracking everything. I went from zero activity back to running 6 miles, swimming over 1000 meters, weight lifting hard-core , and biking on the trail easily 30+ miles.
I know its bad to jump right back into working out without going into it slowly but I use to work out 24/7 for years and my body still looks good.
I am 32 188 lbs 5,11 with 15% body fat. No where near the goals that I would like but I would say fairly healthy.
My main question is why are my joints not healing and now causing severe pain? Am I just getting old or do I have a under lining problem?
I had panic attack before with finals and stuff from college; but I wonder if this is also stress related. The main problem is that I can't sleep sometimes. Like last night I had to work out a little late because I had finals and thus I went to the gym around 6:30 workout biceps hard core, then did abs and cavs like crazy and swam 1000 meters like 40 laps. Came home around 8:30 and eat a huge meal and then tried to watch some TV and go to bed. That was an epic fail.
So to sum it all up I just wonder if I have an auto immune problem, arthritis, stress, or simply just getting old and over used my joints and need more rest. I could have pulled my muscle in my fingers because I was writing extremely a lot in college. It just sucks because I cannot afford to take a break and get out of shape again it would be disastrous. I need to get back into shape to feel healthy again and live my life.
I am just tried of these small anxiety attacks right before bed because I am unsure of what to do and I really do not want to go to the Doctor just so he can pump me full of pills. I'll probably go anyway just to make sure I do not have Diabetes or something.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day.
