Since early last week, I have been experiencing upper chest/shoulder spasms with increasing frequency. I've had them once or twice a day for several years, but in the last week it has gotten progressively worse, until yesterday the spasms were occurring no more than 10 minutes apart.
It is very difficult to do anything, and I don't know what is causing them. They seem to occur more often, and more severely when I am trying to use both of my hands simultaneously. They are very painful, they are causing my shoulders to sublux, and they are making it somewhat difficult to breathe normally.
Preliminary research on the internet suggests they could be caused by TSH imbalance, iron deficiency, renal failure, or diabetes. I am currently awaiting blood test results which could possibly rule out 3 of those.
I am once again wondering "Why me?" What else could possibly go wrong?
I shall be going to the walk-in clinic this afternoon, once I get off work, and possibly call my chiropractor for an appointment. Maybe even a masseuse. Anything that could possibly help would be nice.
I am exhausted.
You may call me "Spaz," I won't mind.
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
On a lighter note, my best friend had her second baby, a healthy little girl on Thursday, and she is so cute, and little (a bit over 7 pounds). I made her 2 little blankets, and her big brother (13 months) loves them!
Edit* For updates, I occasionally comment on my own posts.
Update: After work, I went to the doctor, and he prescribed a medication for Parkinson's disease, as well as sending me for more blood tests.
