Most people around me know that I have a little bit of pain. Sometimes it is when my 20 lb. cat sits on me, sometimes it is when I realize my dishwasher doesn't put the dishes away for me. Every other day, it is a sharp pain in my left big toe, pain in my left foot on the top near the ankle, radiating pain up my left leg, sharp pain and spasms from my left hand and wrist, and a weird pain in my left arm below the elbow.
This week, the saga of the mystery left side main broadened. I mysteriously developed pain in my ear and throat. Well the ear turned out to be lots of fluid behind my ears. the throat pain was mysterious because it was not in a sore throat spot.
A few things I hate to do: going to the doctor, going to the pharmacy, and dealing with problems. As I sit here typing with pain in my left fingers, I think, I should go back and get that checked since I've been on steroids for 4 days and still have so much pain. Maybe next year. I am convinced that even though I don't look like I am in pain, that it is starting impact me mentally. That is obviously not a long trip, but I can't go 15 hours a day like I used to. I get tired before the end of my shift. I actually starty to worry about what is wrong with me.
One of these day, my stubborn self will go, but until then, if you see me not smile or see me looking at my phone, I may be trying to concentrate on something else.
Side note: Since using essential oils, tangerine has helped my book while panaway has helped with the pain. !
