My Thigh Bone's Connected to my ...

My thigh bone is connected to my hip bone which is connected to my back bone which is connected to ...

My' carpal tunnel syndrome' seems to originate from my shoulders and upper back. I think it maybe caused by strained muscles. I recently hauled some heavy furniture around. I know - I shouldn't do it. But I sometimes forget. I think In my mind I'm still young, fit and strong. It appears so easy - well relatively easy - its only that after a few days that the strained muscles start to react by which time I forget what I had been doing a few days previously. Once the pain returned to its original site Ii remembered while moving everything that I felt a slight pull and twist. So basically my problem isn't in my wrists - it's a back problem. I've slightly wrenched and twisted back muscles. I'm now stiff from pelvis to upper back. Which led to shoulder problem with pain which radiated down to my left hand. Once I started on the self massage and found all the sore spots I suddenly remembered what I had been doing! Next time I'll leave it to a strong man. That is If I can find one.

Well, it must be somewhat of a relief to know what is causing the pain then. But really, my little thinking gal, though you are and always will be still young, you CAN be out of practice for moving such heavy things. So yes, please do be more careful in the future about that sort of thing. But please don't hire that man in the last link, even if he is strong enough to move those things, I doubt he could do a good job, using his ears - might make a bigger mess of things. ;)

All you need to do is casually bump into a young neighbour, play the friendly old biddy card, drop your predicament into the conversation then ask directly for his help moving the furniture.

Always seems to work with me.

ps if you give him a bar of chocolate afterwards that would be nice :)
