I was watching Corrie last night, and felt an ache in my wrist, I didn't think anything of it, after all these things happen don't they ?
As time went on, I became aware that the pain had spread up to my elbow, it was getting more severe as it hit my shoulder and neck.
I took some painkillers, the pain was awful. I hadn't lifted anything heavy or done any repetitive work like pruning or crochet etc.,
I really could have cried with the pain, and by now I was convinced I was going to have a heart-attack ! - it was my left arm.
It took the tablets one hour and 10 minutes to kick in, I couldn't lift my arm at all and waited for the impending attack.
I must have dropped off eventually, I awoke this morning with relief, at least I was still alive ! with no signs of pain or discomfort. Very strange.
I can only think it may have been a trapped nerve, it was on the side I always lie in bed.
Just in case there is a heart attack coming on - it's been nice knowing you ...
