Where to start with this?
A little background: Around the start of April 2012, I fell at work (Tripped over a wheel chair >.> don't even ask I'm a clutz.) busted my head open on the floor and fractured my right elbow. Glue (the alternate to Stitches), a half cast, then a brace, and 6 PT sessions later I was cleared by the workman's comp doctor as "cured".
December 17th I woke up for work at 8 am sat up and groaned, both of my knees and my right elbow were so stiff I could barely move. I got myself in a hot shower to hopeful loosen my joints up thinking my knees hurt because of an odd sleeping position and that my elbow likely was hurting because of a lack of a full run with PT since when I was released I did not have full range of motion on my arm.
Progressively over the next few days, I woke up every day aching, sore, stiff joints. To the point that right before Christmas I was in so much pain I could not walk. I was limping and still unable to bend my arm.
I made myself a doctors appointment. I sent sent for xrays. It took over a week for my doctor to get results back to me. There was fluid on my right knee. When I asked my doctor why my left knee was hurting she said it was because I was babying my right. If you remember above I said they both started hurting at the same time.
So I was sent for a MRI. After waiting over a week for my Insurance company to approve me to go for a MRI, I had to wait for another three days before I could actually get an appointment to have it.
So here we are a week after my MRI (by the way never wanna do that again. Small places and me are not friends apparently.) There is no apparent injury to my knee, nothing torn, nothing odd. Just fluid on my knee and a diffused joint. (From my understanding this just means swelling?) Because we have no idea why this is here I have another appointment with a Orthopedic but I'm waiting for a referral to go see one.
Also this morning my doctor had me come in and have some blood drawn, she wants to check me Lyme disease and a few other things not sure what the other tests were she was running are.
So here I sit, in pain, uncomfortable, unable to bend my knees, unable to walk without limping and I am at a loss. What's wrong with my body? My knees wont bend, my right elbow wont bend. They ache. I cannot put pressure on my arm, my knees the act of sitting and standing is at times unbearable and all I do at work all day is walk, sit, stand, and walk some more.
*sighs* I suppose this is the end of my rant, thank you for those of you that read this, I just kinda needed to get my frustrations out there.
