I went back to the same PT I have used before, and I was fortunate enough to get the same therapist. She asked lots of questions about what brought on the stiff and painful neck. She manipulated my head, and we chatted a bit about how my diagnosis got undiagnosed. I gave her the link to Patients Like Me, and I hope she takes me up on the invitation to join.
She seems to think that the electrical stimulation (TENS) and ultrasound will help these muscles relax, and she expects to do some stretching exercises on Friday. Bless her heart, but she remembered that Friday was our Date Day, and apologized for messing it up. But DH will be fine with that, as this is only for a few weeks.
We did something this afternoon we have never done before. I made a smoothie! Hubby bought me a blender for Christmas, because I had said something about wanting to try some. I mixed a banana, raw spinach, a little parsley, some soy milk, and a touch of honey, and we both tried it. It wasn’t half bad, and we both drank it all. Not bad at all for my first attempt.
It always makes me feel better when I feel like I am taking control of a situation, and getting the PT started and learning a way to improve our nutrition is a good start for one day. Yippeeee!
