DJD With Upper Extremity Radiculopathy


That's the fancy term for why I have not been blogging. Translation: The C4 vertebra in my neck is pressing on a nerve juncture that makes my right arm feel like a giant toothache unless I follow Homer Simpson's advice from the Guatemalan Insanity Pepper episode.

Sounds painful. Can it be fixed?

I hope the PT ultimately does more than it seems to be doing so far. I hope they aren't missing something. I will make you good things to eat to compensate for my inability to heal your body and to distract myself from worry over your physical ills. I only wish I could find some way to ease your mental stress. You are my best friend and I wish I could help.

You bleeding heart libs should just bite the bullet and quit whinin....though you might like some troll material every once in a while.

Seriously, hope your condition improves - they usually do. Until the next "thing" pops up. Life.

Get some deep tissue massage. It will help decrease the compression in the cervical region. I guess you werent aware that it was a massage therapist who invented the computer, looking for ways to drum up business. ;)

8 weeks and counting. Thanks for the kind thoughts and advice. I am receiving deep tissue massage at PT and it is helping to some extent. I am no longer looking to hire a coyote to chew my arm off.
