Or maybe wine time? ;)
I noticed on Thursday evening that my right elbow was kind of achey...but of course I thought maybe I had just overdone it rolling pie crusts out or something. By bedtime it felt a little more painful. Went to work the next day and had only 2 appointments but the second was a large man that wanted deep work...by that time, I knew that it was going to be quite uncomfortable but I managed to make my way through. Went home and iced, thinking it was a tendonitis thing.
Got up Saturday feeling a little under the weather but my elbow felt a little better. Went to work, and by the time I got there, my elbow was throbbing and I was dreading having to massage anyone. I got set up though, thinking I had a full day and that i would at least try to make it through and then I'd have a couple days off to rest. But when I looked at my books all but the last two had canceled. I spoke to a manager, called another therapist to see if she would come in early (she did!) and went home. By the time I got home I was completely congested, in pain and emotional...lol.
Iced more, took some cold medicine and rested.
Sunday, wasn't much better but the cold started to subside by the evening at least. This morning, I dropped caity off and headed to the doctor. After some poking, prodding and an x-ray the diagnosis is that my ulnar nerve is inflamed/angry probably from overuse. I've been instructed to take it easy for a couple days and was given a prescription for an anti-inflammatory.
Overall I just feel cranky. I have a headache, my head is congested, my elbow hurts and I'm cold.
But on a positive note, it's not arthritis or bursitis. And I have some taco soup in the crockpot that i'm using the last of our turkey leftovers in...smells delicious! Hey, I can smell! lol
