The injury that interferes with my skiing does so more psycholgically than physicaly- my right shoulder. I have dislocated it 4 times. Only twice skiing (the first dislocation, presumably causing most of the damage, was in a car accident), but knowing that virtually any fall could cause it to pop out is a bit unsettlling.
Switching up your activities can be a good way to give a nagging injury a rest and heal up. Spend a few days snowboarding so that ski-specific muscles can recover. Or demo some tele gear. Or whatever. Even if you aren't proficient or comfortable with other sliding methods they can be a good break in the action as you scale back to slower speeds and easier terrain. When you come back to the skis you're rested and have probably picked up skills that translate without even realizing it.
This nagging headache and upset stomach thing. Oh wait that is a hangover.
What is that? (I mean, what's the symptom?) And how did you get it diagnosed?Tendinitis in my knee.

I've got my knee pain that I couldn't quite nail down (back of kneecap). There's no injury when it started and the flare-ups are quite random. I can't quite figure out the patterns as to what triggers it yet.
As is, I haven't figure out what kind of stretches that would help...
