I tried to hold off till you were feeling abit better. I am in so much pain. I can't believe how this pain is just going up, up, up! The strange part is I have been kind of taking it easy so I just don't get it.
It feels like it is spreading. The entire upper back between the shoulders & both shoulders hurt so bad, & are tight & hard, the muscles are just super tight. Even my hands hurt, especially the left one, they just ache along with my arms. Of course the chest & ribs always hurt. I just don't get it. I feel like I can't even sit up straight. Like there is a ton of rocks on my shoulders & upper back. What do you think, could it all just be because of the muscles?
I called my surgeons office to recheck on my refill & broke down & aks for a Muscle relaxer, I told them even if its just till I can get in on the 16th. That is the only thing I can think of that may give me some relief. I can't live on ice, you know? I don't know if he will do it or not, I told him I already tried skelaxin & flexerril my last vist but how much do you want to bet he will have forgotten & prescribe one of those. I just can't see trying to make it till the 16th like this & the peroc. is not helping long at all. I don't think it will with out something for the muscles. This is going all the way up my neck, its so tight that its giving me a whopper of a headache.

My daughter is having a weekend slumber party & having a group of friends over, I am so worried that I will be in this condition. I am tired of living like this, never knowing & putting my families lives on hold.
Can the myofascial be causing all of this? I just cant believe how my arms & hands hurt. I can feel how tight everything is in the scapula & upper back. Do you think a good Muscle relaxer will help?

I will have my husband rub my shoulders & back when he gets home but thats along time from now & I have so much to do, I can't wait to get into a good PM, at least I hope to end up with a good one. Hope you can answer some of my questions, thanks, Sammy
