I Hurt Myself Pretty Bad ........

Recommended Posts

This afternoon my granddaughtter came over and we were in the living room Grandpa and I was watching her, well she decided to climb up on the chair and stand up towards the back, Howie said no and to sit down well she tried and she went one way, I went another way and Howie went towards us. Well I did something to my shoulder and boy does it hurt. We did manage to keep her from falling on the recliner. but I hurt myself in the process of making sure she didn't get hurt. Then when I had to change her diaper , I couldn't use my left arm at all, poor Howie had to come help me. I don't care what the pain doctor said there is something diffently wrong with my shoulder, and I really don't think its from my neck.

Sam, I hope that you find relief with the epidural! I dont know how your insurance works, but the last time the doctor wanted me to get an MRI the insurance insisted that I get PT first....I am guessing to try to avoid the MRI costs.

Did you say that you had already tried PT or is the pain mainly from the accident?

Either way I am glad that you are persuing this.

Sam,

 

I'm with the others aboug the MRI. It's been long enough. And you know what you're feeling better than the doctors do. How many other things do they want to try first before doing an MRI. I know it's an expensive thing to do, but how long are we expected to go on in pain before they'll believe us!

 

Good luck, I'm wishing for fast results for you.


Happy people don't have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have!

 

Warm and Happy to you! Vee

Have you discussed with your doctor the possibility of fibromyalgia. I worked with a woman who experienced similar symptoms and her diagnosis was that of fibromyalgia. It's treated similar to PMS in that few doctors will recognize and admit that this is a condition.

 

Presently I am on Lyrica which is also used for fibromyalgia. Maybe you may want to bring this up to you doctor on your next visit.

 

Hope all goes well with you and please know, we all share your pain.
