Day 6

On Sunday, I woke up and my left upper back/shoulder began to hurt. I really didn’t think anything of it.

By Monday morning, the pain became extremely intense and it was hard to breathe.

Tuesday, I decided, ‘let’s get this looked at.’ Luckily, X-rays and blood tests all came back negative. Unfortunately, no answer for what’s going on. They did say if it didn’t improve or got worse, I should go to the ER.

When I woke up on Wednesday, everything felt the same: pain and shortness of breath. Again, luckily, things began to improve Wednesday afternoon.

Yesterday was a little better and today is a little better. The chest and upper back pain have pretty much subsided but the shortness of breath is still around.

The nerve and back pain didn’t take the week off so it was a pretty rough one.

I've been living with chronic pain for almost 30 years and I've been through the ringer with injections, medications, physical therapy, Eastern medicine, group meetings, and surgery. I'm also a group facilitator for the American Chronic Pain Association and we focus on helping others living with chronic pain. Hopefully, reading this journal will let people know they're not alone and there is help.
