Oh, My Aching Back

8 years ago

posted from: Kids In the Suburbs

I have somehow managed to hurt my back...again.

My entire upper
right shoulder area is in intense pain. It hurts so much I can't lie
down or lean against anything. I'm trying to lie on a heating pad but
the pressure of leaning on it is bringing tears to my eyes.

I
know it is nothing serious because there was no injury or trauma. I'm
pretty sure I slept wrong or something stupid like that. There's a huge
knot in the muscle right below my right shoulder blade. Oh, I left out
the best part. The huge knot is pushing on the nerves that got out to
my right arm making my entire right arm throb, twitch and fall asleep.
I need to do some exercises that will get those muscles a little stronger so this stops happening!

But,
today, I am stuck on the sofa on a heating pad covered in Icy Hot
downing ibuprofen like candy even though it's not helping. At.All. (OK,
not really like candy, 4 every 6 hours.)

 

*sigh* and *ouch*
