Hey there, just found the site a few days ago, and I am so grateful to have been directed here and I have a place to share without feeling like I am bringing down my friends. It's nice to have a community that understands this sort of thing.
So today was actually a pretty good day: I was at home, just doing some chores around the house but taking it pretty easy overall and only some low level pack pain, which is my normal. I had just finished making dinner when I got these horrible stabbing pains in my shoulder. This is not a new thing, but the suddenness of the pain took me by surprise and I actually had to stop what I was doing to lay down and hope it would past. Now i have this dull, warm, sort of tingling sensation going down the front of my arm: down my bicep, my inner elbow, down to my wrist. If I lift my arm the sensation gets stronger, like a warning. I feel like i cant use my arm! My partner asked me how i was feeling and i just started crying. How am I supposed to sell myself as a good employee, much less prove it, when this happens? I am so tired, and so embarrassed and ashamed. I am only 30 years old and I am so afraid that there is never going to be an answer for what I am feeling. All the doctors I have seen so far just keep telling me to "put ice on it" and rest, or do stretching exercises. I am just worn out.
