Friday...No Trigger Point Injections for Me!!
Friday, June 03, 2011
I had an x-ray of my neck yesterday...not as bad as I thought it would be. I am getting a chiropractic adjustment today instead of trigger point injections. I don't think they will solve the problem...just mask it and I think an adjustment will help more. I am then going to look for a massage therapist. I know they have one at the YMCA...but I am going to check a couple other places, too.
I haven't been blogging the past few days...major problems getting my computer to run. It has been very slow or not moving at all. I know it needs some attention. I am trying to figure out who to have come take a look at it.
I haven't exercised all week...mainly because I wasn't able to get in the pool this week and this neck problem has been bothering me... I don't feel like it is hopeless...just need to get the neck thing solved. I might do water aerobics today...if the chiropractor thinks it would be okay...or I may just go sit in the hot tub at the YMCA after riding the recumbent bike for awhile.
It has been hot in my apartment. I sure wish they would get the hole cut in the wall and put the air conditioner in soon!! I left the window open last night...I don't usually do that...but it felt so good. I should say...they are open now as it is still night time. I got 6.5 hours of sleep...and woke up in pain. So I decided to get up. Not sure if I will lay down after my tylenol kicks in or not.
I haven't entered my food for a few days...but I have written it down and at some point I will enter it. Hopefully my computer will cooperate...and I can do it before Sunday. I am usually really good about entering it each day. Guess I could use my phone...but that hurts my neck. It just isn't comfortable and it is so small...hard to see.
As long as I remember to enter it...eventually!!
It has been a long week. Bobbie is out of town...and I haven't talked to her much. We did make cards on Monday...that was fun and productive. We made quite a few cards...thank you, birthday...and she made some Father's Day cards. I no longer make those...unfortunately...the past 2 years...since my Dad passed away last year in February. So now it is no Mother's Day or Father's Day celebrations for me....now I wish my siblings and nieces and nephews good days on those two occasions.
Well, I should go but some ice on my neck. I am so glad I finally decided to NOT have those injections. That has been bothering me for 2 weeks now. I just didn't have a good feeling about them. I have one flexiril left...and hopefully I will do okay this weekend without them. I see ice and heat in my near future. I hope to so swim...nothing strenuous tomorrow and hot tub...then I pick up my bountiful basket. I am so looking forward to some fresh fruit and veggies!!! It is always fun to see what you get....because you don't know before hand what will be in your basket.
Have a nice day!!
