I've been having pain radiating from my left shoulder, wrist, and arm (its happening to the right one too). Considering I haven't done anything to tear a muscle or injure myself in any way, most people from friends in the medical field to physcians have told me that my problem is musculoskeletal. Be it from overuse or my turning my arm/neck the wrong way, something has happened and has caused me to have chronic pains, discomforts, and tingles for a long time, but what I want to know is...would pain from muscle strain in the arm or neck, also radiate to the side of torso, around the rib?
I find I have some discomfort there near the rib and breast and occassionally the collar bone.
I know some nerves and muscles can connect in strange ways, but Ive just been rather anxious about it. Some words to ease my mind would be appreciated. Having all this pain has really been bringing my mood down and it would be good to hear back, or at least know that I'm not alone. :')
I'm feeling noticeably better as far as my mood goes and I actually am capable at times of exercising patience in public when called for. I have no idea what to attribute this change too. I think it might be a combination of my experience son this site where I am surrounded by people who are like me with respect to my illness. And also another factor is the change of weather - I just do so much...
does anyone have a hard time sleeping alone? I have my dog and she MUST be in bed with me when I fall askeeep. Even if I take a nap I HAVE to have her in bed with me. Even if she is just in the floor chewing her bone I have to bring her into the bed so I can sleep. Tonight I got home from work and after I showered I went into my parents room to get their two 65 pounds dogs cause I feel so...
