Since around the beginning,of February, I have developed such pain in my left arm, I thought it was strained from lifting heaven's knows what. Most of you know I have been clearing out thirty-five years of accumulated junk and such from my parents run down, damp, leaky, mouldy (almost killed me), farmhouse. This has been going on for a month or more. So has the left arm issue. I am on a list to see a Rheumy, sometime, but in the meantime I drag this useless arm behind me. I can use it with much pain and difficulty. No, I have not seen a doctor. Last time I had a similar injury to my left knee, saw three docs, saw my doc, he said "a sprained knee is just a sprained knee, you have no tolerance for pain".It seemed to take forever to stop hurting and now, if I move that leg the wrong way, it hits me like an electric shock, in my sciatica, no less. So, I hesitate to see doc for this. However, I am scheduled for a massage tomorrow, this is hugh for me, also had my hair streaked, also hugh for me, getting my son wheels and a seat in truck driving school to round out his summer stint with Stonemasonry. Older son is doing great, on his own. So, anyone else got this kind of weird, refuses to heal. injury?

Hey Tyno... what part of your arm hurts, shoulder? forearm? bicep? It could be lots of different things. Hopefully your massage will help.
Take care,

Tyno- With all that you are doing, you probably have overdone it and it is yelling at you. If it doesn't settle down once you give it a little time I would have it checked out. It does not take me much to have an arm or leg or foot or whatever to act up after using it a little "extra" even. mad

And hoping the massage helps too!

I get simialar sounding pain all the time. For me it is from less strenuous activity (grocery shopping, doing dishes) but I am still stuck trying to find the right combination of ice and heat to calm things down.
It sounds to me like you might of upset a trigger point which is pinching a nerve. You need to get that area to relax so it doesnt squeeze or press on the nerves when you move the muscle.
Good luck,

Tyno, I injured my right arm pulling a heavy piece of luggage the second week in January and it still bothers me some.  I did have my massage therapist zero in on it last time and that did help me.  Things like that just seem to take longer to heal because we are constantly moving them.

Oh I want a massage too. I have not had one for months with everything going on. sad
 
Tyno, I was in a little wreck almost a year and a half ago and it took almost a year for my neck to get back to normal. The more people that worked on it the worse it got so when I stopped all treatment it finally got better. I had a CAT scan done and there was no damage just the muscles from fibro. So if you feel it is just muscles give it time.
 
luv and hugs

Well; I promised to tell all about my massage and that problematic left arm. I had a massage yesterday, by an excellent therapist. I could tell she really knew her stuff and was fair about going away from the really painful site, to other areas to get 'feel good"endorphins flowing and then back to the trigger point. It sure was an overly irritated trigger point, because as I dressed following the massage it stuck up from my shoulder about a half an inch. he also found an area opposite that when she touched that trigger point I saw images of my mother (odd) with whom I have no relationship, and in order to make the pain stop I had to forcefully practise mind control and gently reguide myself to images of waterfalls, etc. Finally, it let go. The trigger point on the offending shoulder id still standing at attention. It hurt soooooo bad. The therapist said she could feel it starting to soften as she put increasing pressure on it. All of my body feels better today, except that one spot. It is still inflamed and very bothersome. I booked a second session for two weeks and will try to lay off the left arm untill then. However, as I am right handed, I use my right arm for finicky details, like turning keys in locks, etc., but my left arm is what holds all the parcels, all the weight, and right now here, it's just me and two dogs and three cats and none are great at holding grocery bags while I struggle with key in lock. They tend to run away with the groceries. Dang critters. Anyhow, I'll get through.
