So it turns out the c-spine stenosis is caused by early onset arthritis! Saw a neurosurgeon on Friday and he really thinks my symptoms can be alleviated with some PT. I start PT this Friday. I can also apply heat and take Advil (since celebre... Read more

I totally ate horribly yesterday. It was part lack of planning, part needing groceries, part having a busy day, and part just pure laziness. But today is off to a great start. Healthwise anyway. We got about an inch of snow, and the wind... Read more

My arm hasn't gotten much better. I really need to get in with a massage therapist. Especially now that I am uber stressed at work. They added a major job duty to me yesterday (completing home studies!) with no extra pay and in addition to my... Read more
