I am an engineer. I like to figure out how things work. I like to figure out why things don’t work. And when things break, I like to figure that out too. My leg is not doing well right now, so it is time for me to do some real troubleshooting.
Some may ask why I don’t go to the doctor for professional help. Actually people have often told me to seek professional help, but I think they were talking about my mental state. Anyway, if I go to the doctor, he may tell me something I don’t want to hear. And since I don’t want to look childish by sticking my fingers in my ears and screaming “NA NA NA NA NA I CAN’T HEAR YOU” while he tells me I can’t run, I decided just to avoid him altogether.
So in the next week or so, I am going to attempt to pinpoint the cause of my pain. And if possible, I will surgically remove it. I am sure there are some body parts we really don’t need anyway (think appendix.)
I have already started this process, and I have eliminated the following:
1. It is not a bio-mechanical lean issue caused by additional wind turbulence due to parting my hair on one side only.
2. It is not a long repressed phantom pain from my vasectomy that is now showing up in my lower leg.
3. Contrary to popular opinion, it DOES NOT have anything to do with me being hard-headed.
I will continue this list as I rule out more possibilities. Actually, I need one of those whiteboards like on HOUSE that I can put random things on and cross them out.
If you have any ideas, pass them on!
