"It's Just an Arm!"
My arm with the compressed radial nerve is giving me fits, keeping me up at night, keeping me from doing many things; it's a constant tight ache with sharp shooty pains from elbow to knuckles (yes, it's actually getting worse, was wrist.) I've had a few PT sessions . . . the joint is out of alignment at the elbow. Let me tell you, fixing that hurts. If it were my back, I'd be on painkillers, out of commission. But, oddly, it's just an arm and, maybe because of all my work on addressing pain in my back, I'm able to isolate and disregard the pain without being overwhelmed or obsessed. It's good, even when it's bad.
