What really sucks about this tremor is that it still HURTS. This thing won’t stop its tremendous shaking. I DID finally (because of someone else telling me to) go to one of those walk-in clinics to get it checked out. Yeah, the doctor said it didn’t look good and he had me do some x-rays. This was interesting. A lady was having me sit in a chair with my arm rested on a table with a scanner above it. She’d walk to another room, press a button and then came back. I told her that my arm was “shaking” while that was being done. She told me it wasn’t a problem. (Fast X-Ray?)
The doctor took a look at my x-ray and told me that it wasn’t broken.
“So… You just going to drug me up and call it good-enough for now?”
Basically, that was it. I now have a bottle of Meloxicam that I take once a day. So, I took one when I got home today and, well, it still hurts. The one good thing is that since I have Medicare (because nearly ALL the stuff previously talked about) so that it didn’t cost me anything. 🙂 Heck of a deal, huh? (ok, the medication was $2…)
But still, even with this LOW price, I would love to be guaranteed 100% satisfaction at the moment I swallow one of those pills.
This right-arm of mine has recently become more and more drastic in the sense that it shakes incredibly worse. My fingers and my wrist are really bad. It hurts SO MUCH. Before, I would need to hold something to “hold it still”, but now my entire arm hurts from the shaking. This is killing me.
Earlier in my life, I was able to entirely relax my arm (easy at night while sleeping) and it wouldn’t shake “at all”. Now, that doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Then again, at this very moment my arm seems okay when it is entirely relaxed and this “brain of mine” is focused on typing. Today (for once) I am going to “try” and take the time for this ENTIRE DAY to NOT drink my coffee or soda. TRY is the keyword. “try…”
I’ll see what happens with that. So far nothing has changed. Still shakes and hurts.
On the 25th, I described the pain I have always had on the front-left side of my head. Always been there. This past week I could definitely feel the thing on the beginning weekend. As the week went on and on, I felt this “pain” getting smaller and smaller. It was weird. It was getting smaller in “WIDTH”. I just thought (but not wishing) the damn thing was just getting ready to MOVE from the left-side over to the right.
Week went on and on… smaller, smaller, smaller pain…
By Saturday, it was gone. All gone. I have two forehead sides without pain and today (Monday) it’s the same.
Guess I’ll have to wait and see how much more this is going to feel better. Doing pretty good there. Skin and everything on the outside is looking fine. Now I am “still” suffering on the inside. Can’t “remember” a damn thing from one place to another. I think of something, stand-up and have to sit down because I’ve forgotten the reason of my standing. YEAH, IT’S THAT BAD.
I think I mentioned this before, but this thinking and typing here is a shorter and shorter thing to do. I think that my brain just might have forgotten the benefit of knowing how to spell. Thank God for spell-check. This has only taken me 15 minutes to type, instead of ALL AFTERNOON like before.
