Diagnosis Belly!

Close followers of life of Jude will know that I have been chasing down the origins of some pretty bad abdominal pain in the last few months! Well I am pleased to announce that we now have a diagnosis..

I have a sore muscle. Its a big one (the psoas major), which is linked to your spine and leg.. Its the muscle thats supposed to lift your leg to do stairs and stuff. And its given up working. It comes from having one leg longer than the other and driving lots and all that... (pulls pelvis out of line and overworks muscle or something!) And can be fixed by doing core strength exercises.. Pilates here I come..

So I start spine rehab tomorrow.. should be fixed in no time!
