So I woke up the other day in excruciating pain: I couldn’t move my fingers without a seriously sharp pain in my wrist.
It’s been up and down ever since.
I thought I’d got something wrong with my wrist and I’d over done typing or something.
But of course, I remembered when something similar had happened before: it’s a pinched nerve and I think I’ve almost isolated it - my shoulder.
As soon as I get out of bed (still in excruciating pain on occasion) I do some stretching, do some arm rotations on both sides and would you know it: the pain and wrist stiffness disappears.
A reminder on how connected the body is.
I think I know how I got here: the tinnitus and the slightly dulled hearing I have on one side encourages me to lie on the bad side. It feels more comfortable somehow. But I believe over time this has caused my shoulder to ‘freeze’ and this is pinching nerves.
So I suggest if you find yourself doing this, try to avoid it.
