A Pain in my…

Shoulder sent me to the chiropractor today. We’ve been working on giving me some range of motion without making me howl in pain. At the end of the session Dr. Cal (who kind of reminds me of Matthew McConaughey) sent me to a walk-in orthopedic center. There, they x-rayed my shoulder, determined that I have some arthritis, bursitis, and maybe even other “itises“ yet to be named.

The orthopedist gave me a shot of cortisone and hopefully that, along with continued physical therapy, will help me get back to my normal wacky activities. All this pain—has resulted in my gaining five pounds, and it’s ticking me off.

I’ll be more chipper tomorrow. Oh, if you need something to read on this cold February weekend, might I suggest a couple of books? Suitable for Framing, a cozy mystery by Lori Roberts Herbst and my own novel, Mayhem at the Happy Valley Motor Inn and Resort, a quirky road trip story set in east Texas. They’re both available from Amazon and as an ebook on Kindle. And the reviews are really good. It’d probably make my shoulder feel better if you bought the books.

  1. Ouch! I had a similar problem a few years back. I had (have) several of the itises as well. A friend of mine does too. Evidently it is common for women in their 60’s to get this condition. My orthopedic doctor told me a technical term that I don’t recall but he called this grandma’s shoulder. I got the cortisone shot as well which helped a lot and then went to physical therapy for about two months . The combination helped tremendously. I wasn’t bothered by it for years until recently. My doc explained the mess my bones were in and then quite simply told me Lesley, this is what happens when we start to get old. I wanted to hit him, but I knew he was right! 😩

      1. Nope, not at all for wimps. But after battling cancer for a year I’ll choose aging any old day! I’m starting to embrace my aches and pains. It reminds me that I’m still alive, and that my friend, is pretty fabulous. Besides, you don’t look old. Remember what Billy Crystal said, “It’s better to look good than to feel good!” 😉

  2. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my left thumb from holding my cellphone. Young people walk around with their phone in their hands for ages! But I get osteoarthritis. What a slam.
