Pinched Nerve

I'd been feeling a little soreness in my right shoulder, which I attributed to funny sleeping, until I picked up my laptop bag to go to Montana. Ouch.

While I don't know exactly what is going on my guess would be a pinched nerve in the rotator cuff area and I spent most of the weekend with an icepack strapped to my upper arm trying to be relatively immobile.

Of course it is hard to let your primary arm live entirely without duty when you need it to help with simple tasks.... like pulling up your pants.

I've reached out via email to my Doctor in hopes that she'll refer me to someone who can give me a shot of the good stuff or just cut it off (seriously- I've had a few "sever the infected arm" Walking Dead moments recently).

In the meantime I'll just remember fondly to a time when I could hug my horse without wanting to punch someone. I have a mean left hook.
