Ironically, when I woke up Monday morning with the feeling that something was in my eye.
I also woke up with absolutely no pain in my arm our rotator cuff.
For over a year I've been dealing with pain in my right arm & rotator cuff, after I injured my shoulder doing something mundane- trying to check if I'd packed my laptop in the backseat, while driving. I kept feeling around for the laptop shock pocket in the backseat while driving. Over 40% of all rotator cuff injuries are caused by doing this, so don't do it, EVER.
The arm and shoulder felt like there was a continual lactic acid buildup- 24 X7.
I had an MRI that showed only normal ware and tare of the shoulder and arm.
Two thoracic ribs on the right side of my back kept popping out, and while my range of motion was not severely limited with my arm- it sure as hell hurt to move my shoulder and arm while doing certain exercises. And sometimes, If I moved my arm to far back behind, I'd get a shooting pain. Sometimes, the pain would wake me up in the middle of the night.
Yet, all signs pointed to a rotator cuff issue.
Monday morning when I woke up, the first thing that I noticed was that my right arm and shoulder didn't hurt, like at all. Not one bit! I'd been waking up in pain for over a year -it was indeed a strange and wonderful feeling.
The second thing I noticed was the whole right eye issue thing.
I didn't put two and two together until yesterday when I realized: WOW- my shoulder and arm barely hurt at all!
Personally, I think that in all the scar tissue in my right rotator cuff, there was a blood clot a brewing.
Sunday, I had a crazy two-hour pool workout that included weights and cardio - I was doing exercises with weights that I hadn't been able to do in quite sometime.
I felt great!
I felt great on Monday morning.
Tomorrow I will be having my ecco cardiogram & corroded artery tests and I will bring up the whole rotator cuff / arm issue.
I'm not a really a betting woman- but something tells me that these coincidences do indeed go together. I'm thinking maybe I should pick up some lottery tickets on the way to my appointment at Jefferson University.
Ahoy for now!
