No cross stitching for now...

I have been a dental hygienist for more than 11 years now.  Unfortunately this job causes many back, neck, shoulder, arm and wrist problems... About 3 weeks ago, my right side from neck to hand got hurt and I have been in a lot of pain since.  I keep getting muscle spasms, and my entire arm keeps going numb.  It is quite scary, because I can't do much anymore. 
I went to see a doctor who gave me pills and showed me some exercises to do.  The pills are not helping much, but they make me feel woozy! I had to stop working for a week or so until my arm heals.  I start physiotherapy tomorrow and I have an EMG test in 10 days.  I hear they are quite painful! 
The worst part is that I can't even touch any of my cross stitches.  Too painful! I haven't worked on any of my projects in a month now, and it's driving me crazy!  I really hope my arm heals soon!

  1. Hi Annie, I'm so sorry to hear about all your health problems. I hope the physiotherapy does the trick and you can be pain free very soon.

    I love all your wips, especially Scarlet Lips she looks amazing. Thanx for following my blog and I'm glad it led me to yours. Take care and I truly hope you feel better soon so that you can get back to doing the things you love!
