2 days ago I shoveled an icy driveway. I have shoveled on many occasions but this snowfall was tougher due to the 1 inch of ice on top. Since then I have burning in my left shoulder, numbness in my left hand and a bruised feeling right below my left collar bone that is gets worse as the day goes on.
I am left handed and had carpal tunnel surgery 4 years ago and I do get muscle spasms in my upper back. Aleve seems to help.
