Well I am officially done with my second round of PT of the year. I am "sort of" better than I was :-/ At least the shoulder joint is OK, and no surgery is needed. The bad part is there is still a lot of pain and instability. For example, Monday it was 90 degrees. Then yesterday is was down to 50 degrees - a difference of 40 degrees in 3 days. My shoulders were really upset about this! Both shoulders were popping, subluxing, spasming, etc. I got a nasty migraine too.
I'd told the PT people that I only have 20 "physical medicine" visits per year. I've already used over half. So I was able to cancel one appt. and I have about 8 left I think? Something in that range. I wanted to leave some in CASE (knock on wood) I hurt myself, need surgery, have ongoing issues that need more help or who knows what. I am still doing the exercises for my hips and now my NEW!! and improved shoulder exercises.
My stomach is still not "great" so I'm debating what to do about that. I think it has more to do with my migraines than anything physically wrong with my stomach. My stomach usually cramps up before or after I have a headache. Soooo I don't think there is much a doctor can do about that. Since they can't stop the migraines, the stomach cramps won't stop either. It seems to also occur more often with rainy weather. I'm afraid if I went to a new GI doc and said I have stomach cramps during rainy weather, and I can't eat X, Y and Z, he or she would pretty much laugh me out of their office.
I'd like to get back to acupuncture. Maybe that would help my stomach. However I need to pay off some of these bills first. We just paid off my son's braces. Now we have his marching band fees as well as all the co-pays from all my PT and my MRI! Blah!
