Tendonitis frustration/vent
April 10, 2013 at 7:57 AM

I just can't seem to catch a break!  Weight training (and overdoing it) caused some issues in my arms which aggravated a pinched nerve in my neck.  Due to my unconscious efforts to compensate for the pain, I now have tendonitis in my shoulders/upper arms.  Ever try to heal from tendonitis?  They tell you to rest the affected joint for a few weeks.  Uh huh.  I'm a busy mom...and I can't do what I do with just one arm.

So....no workouts for a while.

    Boo!  That sucks.  Try to behave so you can get better, though.  =)

    I slipped when I got out of the shower 2 days ago....really didn't help when I used that arm to catch myself.

    one word:  acupuncture. 

    i swear, it cured my carpal tunnel and tennis elbow!

    That's a thought!

    A massage therapist cured my carpal tunnel...I do need to see a chiropractor for my neck and they've got a MT there.  If I don't get this pinched nerve fixed I fear the tendonitis will keep recurring.

    Ug, that SUCKS.  I've had tendonitis.  NOT a quick healing process, and definitely not easy to totally allow the area to rest!  Hugs!!
