Well I saw the dr. this morning about my sore shoulder. It’s been bothering me off and on for a few months. I have pain from my left shoulder down to my elbow and sometimes my hand feels numb. On a good day I have a constant nagging pain and it’s uncomfortable. On a bad day I can’t pick up Abi or pour milk from the jug …and forget about crocheting when it’s bad. Over the past couple of weeks it has gotten worse and so I thought I should get it looked at.
Here’s the funny part of the conversation:
DR.: How old are you?
DR.: Ok, it’s not unusual for this kind of injury to pop up at your age
HAHAHAHAHAHA….I knew I was getting old before my time!
So…the injury: Rotator Cuff Injury or Repetitive Movement injury. Solution: the first of many will be Physio. I have to go back in a month and to see how things are going. If at that point it’s not getting better, although he is sure physio will make a world of difference (so am I) than I may have to be referred to a surgeon to see what they think and possibly get an ultrasound to make sure there isn’t anything else going on.
So on to find a physio place in town to go to and get this thing cleared up. I might take advantage of my visits and ask about proper training for running too 🙂 We shall see. I really hope it doesn’t come to surgery…however, knowing the way things go in my life…I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised! For now I have to learn to rely on my right hand/arm for some things…like holding my coffee cup (yep, some days drinking coffee hurts). I feel quite positive about it for now though 🙂
Happy Tuesday all! Have a great rest of your week!
