Ok, if that doesn't scare you, it scares me.
It has only gotten worse since this picture was taken.
If nothing gets done to fix it, I will have to endure another MRI (augh!)
When the book, came out "I feel bad about my neck" by Nora Ephron, I kind of laughed at the title because it was more about how she felt her neck looked, not how it felt. For me, things changed after that. In my case, I feel bad because of my neck.
Remember though, I am trying to stay positive, this is just the current reality:
it makes my shoulders hurt.
It hurts when I stand.
It hurts when I sit.
It gives me a headache.
It made my left arm go numb, and the elbow hurt. And there is now nerve damage affecting that side. Perhaps that is now happening to my main arm as
now, my right arm and hand is numb, and the elbow hurts, and the shoulder blades are excruciating. It hurts to even have my bra pull on my back.
Friday I did call the Dr's office. After several call backs, I will pick up temporary disability papers so that I can try to get this current situation to calm down, while I wait for worker's comp.
I will try to stay calm. Stress makes it worse. sitting makes it worse. And typing is bugging me, so I am staying off the computer more.
