I have pinched or inflamed or perhaps insulted a trigger point in my shoulder blade. It burns so bad and twinges all the way down to my elbow like I've been hitting my funny bone over and over again.
I dropped the in-laws off at the airport yesterday and called the doctor on the way back home. Thank God for living in a small town. You can get in to the doctor right away and get treatment immediately.
He shot me up with steroids and Lanocaine and I immediately felt a bit better. At least my toes uncurled and my eyeballs stopped rolling up into my head when the pain came. Driving like that is not safe!
But this morning I have the expected bruise from the injection. I think the doc replaced the flaming arrow with a bullet hole.

This is going to take a couple of days.
In the meantime, typing and sewing are tough since my arm jerks randomly and I fling coffee (or Diet Coke) all over myself. Be patient with me. I will be back to my normal ornery self soon!
