It seems like my body’s been rebelling on me in the last few days. I don’t know if I have some kind of virus or bug, or if some of what I’m going through is still nicotine withdrawal. BTW I haven’t smoked for 9 whole days!
I have Crohn’s disease some my abdomen is quite sensitive to begin with and since Saturday I’ve had so much abdominal pain it’s been unbelievable. It’s all on the right side – a cross between what probably feels like appendicitis and either having a bad kidney infection or a kidney stone. Not good.
I’m actually feeling a little better today than I have most of the week. I do have one other major problem though … I seem to have tendinitis in my wrist as well.
I saw my doctor on Tuesday for a regular appointment and told her about my abdominal pain and wrist pain. The wrist pain has been going on for about 3.5 weeks now, but it’s been getting worse and worse. It even wakes me up at night.
My doctor says I have to rest my wrist. Ha ha … I write for a living these days. How am I supposed to rest my wrist? Oh did I mention that It’s my left wrist that’s hurting and I’m left handed? Uh huh.
I still have to do some writing but I am trying to rest it. It’s hard though. You don’t realize just how much you do with your hands and your wrists until it hurts terribly to do those simple movements.
I guess I can keep myself busy editing some of my husbands draft posts. He always needs me to reread his posts before they get published – otherwise they’d have grammar such as Weight loss pills best instead of saying something like the best weight loss pills. He also forgets words like and and but and switches tenses in the same sentence.
Have you had tendonitis of the wrist? Is it better now? If so, what did you do to make it go away or help it? In addition to trying to rest my wrist I’m also putting heat on it a couple of times a day. It seems to help.
