Went to ER today

cracker Member Posts: 324 Pioneering
My left arm, which I can't really use, went into spasm. I was bent over double with the pain, and the arm kept jerking back and forth.]

The Emergency Department said I had torn a muscle in that arm. I have it in a sling and it is quite painful. They gave me a muscle relaxant which I will not take because it will make me dizzy and drowsy - I live alone and must be alert.

It seems that once one has a disability, other problems crop up around the injured part. The arm is really deteriorating now. 

So there it is. I will learn to cope with this, too. It does get discouraging to develop yet another symptom.
