Not-so-small glitch!

Saturday, January 17, 2015

Right after I paid my gym fees in December, I started having trouble with my right knee. Finally on December 30th, the doctor drew fluid off and gave me a cortisone shot. When I am not working or playing music at the church, I am spending a lot of time with brother Tylenol and Sister heating pad. The pain is so "de-motivating!" I can do my housework...barely...but haven't been able to exercise. In the meantime, my money is trickling away at the gym. I am calling them today and asking for a temporary suspension. I sincerely hope I can get one!(Well, I am whining, but if I can't whine to my Sparkfriends, to whom can I whine?) emoticon

    So true. This is the 1st time I've had physical pain ongoing. I'm 62 and it's the car accident that has hurt me. emoticon 😍

    The previous messages were so right. We are here for you.
    Pain is no fun, some time back in the middle of the night my right hand started burning like it was on fire, and curiously the first knuckle of the ring finger on that hand had a piercing pain to go along with the burning. Had I been living alone I would have cried out. Doctor had no explanation, which seems to be the case too many times.
    I do hope some of the seated exercises given here on Spark will help until your knee heals.
    I too will be praying for you.
    Hope it is sunny where you are it is so gloomy out. Have not heard a weather report today. It it were going to rain we would all be happy, we need it so badly.

    So sorry you are going through this. I know I've had times where I couldn't exercise because of pain or an injury. Your gym should be able to suspend your gym membership until you can go back to exercising. Most gyms do that. I am glad you have this wonderful place to come and talk about things that bother you. That's what friends are for.

    May God put peace in your heart and ease your pain while you heal. emoticon

    Blessings, Alice

    Sorry to hear about your knee problem. I do hope you can get your membership suspended. Are you able to do any chair exercises? I know they have some here on Spark. I have trouble with my knees, but that is caused by my weak hip muscles. Trying to get that taken care of. We are all here to lend a shoulder to cry on or an ear to listen. You are never alone on Spark!! Hope you feel better soon.
