My Night of Pain

Thursday, April 04, 2013

I have been doing so well lately in the pain department a constant 7, and energy to burn, a real turn around for me until last night. Bam it hit me like a ton of bricks. I went to bed as normal my good shoulder and neck were niggily but dealable, I think I dropped off to sleep quickly, then I woke in sheer pain, I had what I call a Charlie horse in my bad shoulder, but this started at my fingers and went right up through my arm into my shoulder, the type of pain that takes your breath away. I knew to move, even to twitch would cause more pain, as I lay there, I wondered whether to wake Wayne, I decided no what could he do except comfort me, as I lay there I felt the hot tears running down my cheeks, this made me mad I am not a crier, so I thought I can lie here defeated like what I used to do, or I can slowly start moving my fingers working the spasm out. I opted to work the spasm out, this is an endless task as I can only move one finger at a time or it sends a ripple effect of spasms, so last night I laid there in agony slowly first getting my fingers to move, I could slowly feel them starting to relax, as I slowly started moving and gently massaging my arm and then very gently my shoulder I could feel that whole area relax and the spasm finally leave me, man I hate that type of pain, it is like a leg cramp, they are awful and extremely painful.
I don't know what caused it, I thought back through the day nothing was different yes the day before on the spur of the moment we went to the city, had a day browsing round shops and visited with Jared, we had done that before.
Then I have gotten to thinking the only difference in my diet was last night for dessert I had made mocha chocolate moose, I needed something different, I did find it rich, although made from coconut milk, there was no soy in the chocolate chips, so I am left with an I wonder thought.
I have dessert left as all 3 of us only had a half portion, I will tuck the rest of the dessert in the freezer and will ask my naturopath next Friday if there is a connection. Or at a later date try the dessert again and see what happens.
This morning I wanted to do my usual curl up in a little ball and refuse to get up, and be miserable. But instead I chose to get up and start my day with a coffee and some healthy sparking, it is not a pleasant day outside yes it is sunny with blue skies but it is blowing a gale, so not sure what plans I have for today, it maybe a WIO day with the wii and an elliptical day, We shall see, but the important thing here today is that I am up and I am embracing the day with coffee in hand!!!

    So sorry you had so much pain, Anjay. I get those spasms in my thighs and they cause me to cry too. Hopefully you can find what caused them and keep it from happening again.
Hope you have a better rest tonight.

    I'm glad you are feeling better. I would have to wake my husband. He doesn't have a problem waking me when he is in pain. I usually have to message the painful area, so I now get him to do the same for me. Especially when I get those leg cramps. But you are a trooper. You handled it well. We must be careful with those arm pains though. They could be a sign of something much worse, hurt troubles. Keep that in mind if it keeps happening. emoticon

    I have found that those types of spams (I get them in my hands and feet) are because my magnesium is low and I take pills to get rid of them, If I miss a pill then I get those spams and they are real painful and hard to get rid of too.

    I can relate I very rarely get charlie horses in my legs...when I was younger it was growing pains, now it is due to a lack of potassium...and I really have to be deficient to get them last time I had one was about 10 yrs ago, and I still remember it !! I hope you recuperate and feel better soon. emoticon
