I hurt my arm fighting with the intruder who broke into my house and finally got up the courage to see my dr about it last week. The pain is so bad i can barely move it. The dr. sent me for xrays. The tech told me i would be hearing from my dr. Since no news is usually good news when it comes to xrays i asked if this meant that my injury was significant. She said yes and also said i should probably be wearing a cast until i see the dr. I don't think anything is broken but something must have shown up. What other types of injury would show up on an xray?
It's good to see you! I'm glad you were able to get your sugars under control and hope your are feeling less anxiety about your horrible experience.
I've tried to "20 questions" an x-ray tech before. They won't say anything! What part of your arm is hurting? I know the x-ray of my shoulder revealed bone calcification and bursitis - but those are not injury related.
I am sending you positive, pain free thoughts! Please let us know...
The worst pain is in my elbow. I can't even touch it without pain and it is swollen. The pain runs down into my fingers as well. It hurts to type and use my hand. I can't lift anything with that arm either. She xrayed the whole arm .
I'm still having a lot of anxiety over the incident. A contractor is working on the doors but it has turned into a big project. The wood frame needed to be replaced and the whole entrance way. He was working with some sort of power tool and cut my gas line. This led to a bunch of firemen, police and utility workers. The utility co dug up half my driveway to replace the gas line. Right now it is very hard for me to get in and out of my house. I'm disabled and the path leading up to the house is a mess. I have doors but not all the locks are in place and there are open places around the door frame which still need to be closed. I'm having a very hard time sleeping between the arm pain and the door situation.
It get's better. Last night during a rain storm my power went out. I tried to go outside to see if other houses on the block were lit and found myself in water up to my ankles. The entrance way, which is pretty much open to the elements, had flooded. The problem is that the breaker box for my electricity is out there and it got soaking wet. I went back inside and spent the rest of the night in the dark worrying about crackheads and electrical fires. This morning i tried to get out to go to work and fell in the driveway. My arm is very bad and i hurt my chest wall too. It hurts to take a breath.
It seems like the door/porch project will never be finished. Things just keep getting worse. I've really had it. I haven't slept in days and i'm starting to feel the effects.
I'm so sorry dusty there are mean people out there, you can even trust them, even your neighbors you up to watch out for, the world been changing every since the 1950. 1950 was a good year people gave milk on their doorsteps and welcome then. *' but time has chaged.You ake care dusty I arm feel better
