A bad day for pain

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I have had this pain in my good shoulder and neck for close to a month now, I just think I am on the mend and wham, my bad shoulder has settled down finally and the pain level is back to its normal 7ish, that I can handle, so yes the caster oil packs are working. But today I have had no energy nada, zilch, so I have given my body what it has asked for rest, I went and laid down for a nap and slept close to 2 hours, when the phone woke me, it was my son asking about gf flour. So I got up and had a hot shower, heat seems to help the pain, my bad shoulder never liked the heat, that is why I think this is something different. But I have 2 more weeks of caster oil packs before I see the naturopath again. I am not taking today as a step back rather a huge step forward.
You see yesterday, I exercised 15 minutes on the elliptical, then in the afternoon, hubby and I went for an amazing snowshoe, we went on the trail and went to our little village and back that is about 4 miles, which is so awesome for me, it may have been a bit much for me, but I enjoyed the heck out of it. Hubby and I stood under a tree and necked like a couple of school kids hee hee, so much fun.
I seem to have a couple of good days then a bad day, soon the good days will be more and more , I have learned to be patient and go with this. If I fight I will only make matters worse, so for now I do what I can and what I can't just don't get done!!

    Can't beat necking under a tree like teenagers LOL! I am thinking that as you progress thru this, some muscles that were seized are relaxing and it is causing a domino effect on other muscles that are now being awakened to do their work etc. and they are getting tired fast because they haven't been used much in the last while...
