I told you yesterday that the discomfort in my chest had transferred into a pain between the shoulder blades.
As yesterday afternoon went on, the pain got progressively worse and I was really uncomfortable on the train going home last night, so much so that I decided to take a rest night. Those of you that know me well and have followed the story know that I dont do unscheduled rest.
The doctor in the hospital suggested it was either a muscle pull somewhere in my chest wall or a trapped nerve issue. The doctor's diagnosis seems pretty much spot on right now. As I breathe in and my chest expands front and back, I'm in pain. Its pretty much smack bang in between my shoulder blades.
Can I put any ibuprofen gel or Voltarol on it? Not a bloody hope. One of the small disadvantages of being single. I would have done anything for someone just to rub a small amount on me last night. My Mum offered but that would have meant a two bus trip to Bexleyheath, so I opted for a scalding hot bath and some Nurofen Plus tablets in the end. I felt a lot better as I went to bed and slept pretty well but its really sore again this morning.
I will see how I feel later but as it stands, I dont know whether I will run with the Plums tonight or even hit the Gym. I'll just have to play it by ear.
