I feel ya. I have A TON of sports injuries. It's just, the first time I tore the labra in my hips and they prescribed me Vicodin...well, I was an exercise addict, all it did was teach me the unrivaled pleasure of running while on Vicodin! That was a few years ago, I'm getting better now. Still need muscle relaxers and milder pain killers for the occasional frozen shoulders/neck, but the hips are better and I rarely overdo it. If you can stop yourself now, take it from someone who knows, it's worth resting.
