Pain I won’t forget anytime soon is my reason for no recent posts. For about four weeks now I’ve had a slight catch under my right shoulder-blade that quickly became excruciating pain. I’ve been under a doctor’s care for two weeks now and the two weeks before that I was able to work but the pain kept getting worse. I was finally in tears on the third week and unable to do anything with my right arm except sit on a heating pad and taking Aleve. That third week I worked on Monday but that afternoon went to urgent care. My physician wasn’t in and the doctor I saw told me what I already knew which was that I had a pinched nerve and he prescribed a anti-inflamitory and to continue what I was doing. I missed the next day of work and my wonderful and caring husband loaded me up the next day to see my regular PA. She gave me a good going over and ordered x-rays and made me an appointment the next day to have a corti-steroid shot in my right arm/shoulder. I went thinking it was going to be a miracle cure and boy was I wrong!! This doctor laid me off for a week after giving me the shot, kept me on the pain meds, and heat and seven days later I’m better but must have physical therapy for 4-6 weeks 2-3 times a week and come back to see him in three weeks. I have been about to go out of my mind with nothing I could do and having to sit in my recliner on a heating pad for 10 days. No computer. No lifting. No pushing/pulling. Quiet!!
Hopefully this physical therapy which starts tomorrow will get me back to where I’m supposed to be. I’m been okayed to return to work and the therapy is at 4:30 tomorrow afternoon. Keep me in your prayers!!
