I'm just now noticing that you have an injury, perhaps a stress fracture? Wishing you all the best in your recovery and be sure to get the proper scan to find out what it really is so you don't eff it up worse.
Thanks Martin! Hoping it's more of a stress "reaction". X-rays didn't reveal a fx, I've had a few stress injuries before, this feels like a mild case but needs some time to heal.
