These were made B.S. (before shoulder).
I saw my Sports Medicine Specialist last week, finally. After doing some office-y tests and talking to me, he said I WAS DOING TOO MUCH SEWING WITH BAD POSTURE (I know Mom). He referred me to physical therapy to get my shoulder, upper back muscles stronger (2-3 times a week for a month +). And to stop with the anti-inflammatory 2x daily (I thought it was pain meds!) using them only as needed.
Well, easier said then done. Turns out my new insurance doesn't cover physical therapy. Oh no, that's not true. If I pay $250 each and every time I visit a physical therapist, they'll pay what's left over. nah. On the other hand, I immediately stopped taking the meds with no problem. Until the 3rd day, when my arm to hand was like a one-way freeway of pulsating something or others that dead ended in numbness. I'm back on them again.
Meanwhile the Doc recommended a you-tube video with stretches using a band for my scapula dyskinesis (abnormal movement of the shoulder blade). We've ordered the stretch bands from Amazon...
I'm going to show up for Visible Monday at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style even though it's Tuesday. And Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like, (even though I'm not). And let's just forget the shoes this time.
