Last Thursday I had to lug my vision and hearing testing equipment to another school. The nursing team works together to get our 10th graders tested each year, at each of our 8 high schools. On Friday, I submitted an injury report because my left forearm and wrist are swollen and painful. I have a history of bilateral carpal tunnel and tendinitis, have been under worker's comp care for a couple of years. I wore a brace on my right hand, but not the left while I was hauling the equipment on a luggage cart. silly me. This morning I woke up with pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders, especially on the right. I also have disc issues in my neck. I'm waiting for a PT referral for neck and shoulder pain, so that has been a problem already, but had calmed down lately. SIGH. Needless to say, I plan to have someone else do the lugging on the rest of the testing days. It'll be a nuisance, but better than this pain! I took half a darvocet and a tylenol before breakfast today, and that is unusual for me. So, does this sound like fibro, or something else? It's hard for me to tell the difference anymore. thanks, Beth.
