I've been twisted, poked, prodded, needled, x-rayed, nerve conducted, MRI’d, electro-magnetic wrapped, cold lasered, acupunctured, operated on and today at this moment I can’t hold a paint brush. I can’t move the mouse to this computer without my forearm burning. I can’t help that at the base of my skull it feels like someone has taken a whack at me with a 2X4. When I wake up my hand is stiff and sore. I haven't been able to sleep on my right side in 3 years. I can’t help that muscles in my neck, shoulder and arm seem to tie themselves into giant solid knots without me doing ANYTHING to cause them to do so.
I’m frustrated. I didn’t sleep but more than a few hours last night. And in a desperate attempt to help the muscles that inexplicably stiffen up down the right side of my neck and into my shoulder, I headed to my massage therapist early this morning who said she has NEVER seen my neck this bad.
Last week I was told by my chiropractor it’s all from “over use”. Funny - because I’m not working much these days. I can’t. And the apparent “face-plant” that a new fresh out of school chiropractor from the same office put me in, gave me a headache for days and has my right eye twitching – constantly so and especially when I turned my head to the right for the first 48 hours afterward. And now for the first time since I started to see results from physical therapy, my forearm is wreaking havoc on my hand and with movement feels like it’s on fire.
It’s time to reset. I think it’s time for new eyes to take a look at this mess and hopefully – desperately – ACTUALLY get some answers and truly, not just promise without delivery - SOLUTIONS.
