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!!
