    Ashley Wagner in Washington Post

    Really good article here about what was wrong with her muscles and how they treated it.

    Nice article - thanks for posting this.

    Spinal nerves, especially the ones in the neck, can be incredibly temperamental - what happened to Ashley is one of the most bizarre things I've ever heard of. I'm just happy that she was able to have the problem treated and is now back at 100%.

    In retrospect, coming in 5th at NHK having only done six run-throughs of her program is nothing short of amazing.

    Yeah, crazy to hear about these health issues. I'm glad she was able to figure out the cause and work through it. Hopefully with physical therapy she can continue to keep it under control.

    That's really crazy. I hope she can finally put together 2 clean programs and make it to Worlds.

    I didn't realize she was still struggling with the muscle spasms. Anyway, glad things are back under control.

    Interesting case for sure.

    Woah... She told us she was sick in her vlogs, but I never knew it was that bad!!! Does anyone think it's interesting that we learn about these thing like 6 months after a competition happens?

    Buried in the article on the 1st pg. is a sentence re Sochi 2014 - says she doesn't know if she'll last that long. I hope that's not the case

    That's to be expected. Still a ways from now. Can't predict the future. But in the video she says her ultimate goal (kudos for not being shy) is to win in Sochi.

    I recall her having heart issues during the last Jr. Worlds she competed in. And remember how much she was shaking during the medal ceremony? I'd hazard a guess that this has been going on longer than just since the summer. How terrifying! The poor girl!!

    Well at least it's treated now, so that's a good thing.

    Good grief! Way to stay private! What a horror. I hope she skates fabulously and has a ball.
    DH - and that's just my opinion

    Glad they were able to figure out what caused the problem before things got even worse. Hopefully Ashley can put together two clean programs at Nationals.

    And, it was v. nice to see Irina Romanova again! I actually saw some shades of their Malguena FD in Ashely's program...but that might just be sleep deprivation kicking in.

    I had no idea she's had those problems. Glad they are all cleared up and good luck this week!
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    Apparently (according to her twitter) Ashley has come down with the flu. How unfortunate. Maybe it will be a good distraction from overthinking about her skating and somehow she'll blow everyone away.
