Pain Update

There isn’t really much to update on at the moment; life’s been too busy to start physical therapy and so I’m kind of just hanging in a weird interim phase.

I can still notice a significant improvement in my pain level from before the steroid shots to after the shots. However, I’m starting to feel like I had less pain after the second shot – I’ve had three, and I feel like some of the pain has returned.

It isn’t the sharp stabbing pain that I associated with the C5-C6 injury; it’s more dull, although it’s sharper than an ache. But it’s still there. I’d say it’s a 3-4/10 on the pain scale – I can still function through it just fine, but it’s not ignore-able.

I don’t know if it’s because I worked too hard the day after the final injection, or if it’s because the injections just don’t last, or a fluke, or what. 

I have an appointment next Monday with the clinic again; I’ll see what they say and possibly pick up my TENS unit. And I’ll start PT next week, for real.
