I have fallen down on the job of aiming to be "iron commenter." I hurt my shoulder last week Tuesday. I thought I pulled a muscle, nothing too bad. But, the pain kept getting worse and worse and worse. Yesterday I picked up Luv Bug and almost fell down from the pain. I have never hurt a joint or broken anything so this was a pain I had never experienced. And, the mystery of what happened was getting to me. I went to the doctor who then sent me for x-rays. I have rotator cuff tendinitis. Apparently my shoulder was almost "frozen" which is extremely painful and recovery time is 6-8 months. If I hadn't gone in yesterday, that would have been my prognosis. I got a shot of cortizone and instructions on icing and heat and exercises to do for 3 weeks until I go back for a check-up.
It was a little depressing being asked more than once before the x-rays," Are you pregnant? Any chance of being pregnant?" Little did they know what a difficult question that was for me. I sighed and said, "No, not a chance." A mental blow to an already exhausting day.
My husband said I got my injury from blogging to much! He is beginning to hate my computer. Even though he is sitting watching sports while I am on the laptop. I didn't do anything fun or exciting to get this injury so I'm telling people I received it from training for a triathlon. A much better explanation.
