Well, I was right. It's piriformis syndrome and it's a pain in the butt. The doc said less running (not happening), ice, heat, motrin. She offered an anti-inflammatory shot in the butt, and I balked. I generally elect not to get stabbed with sharp things. But when I told her that tomorrow's run is 17 miles, she said "get the shot." So, I feel better for now - no stabbing pain, just achy - but this will only last a couple of days. The orthopedist will likely only be able to do the same - steroid shots and that nasty look they give when they say "and lay off the running." *sigh*
