The last 2 times, during and especially after working out, I've had toe swelling and soreness, I guess from pounding the treadmill. I have a bunion there (right toe). about
20 years ago, I had a major injury there (shattered the bone). It healed okay but I was guaranteed arthritis within 7 years. That didn't happen (I think) but it does flare up at times. I'm going to take a break and resume my gym workouts early next week. I may need to look at an alternative to the treadmill (elliptical or bike -- any suggestions).
Additionally, I've been having lower intestinal pains/discomfort that has been worsening over the last 10 days. I stopped the OPCXTRA a few days ago on a hunch, but that does not appear to be the culprit. I'm not sure if it's the fish oil, D-3, flaxseed, pomegranite juice, Greek Yogurt, prunes (the last 2 or to help with bms), or none of those. I may just be under the weather. Period. I'll have to experiment by stopping some of this stuff. However, I have had a history of intestinal problems, so as I said it may have nothing to do with the supplements. Ugghhh.
I really hate getting old.
