I don't know if I fell due to tripping on the hose or dizziness but I did fall and got a bruise on right upper arm and lower spine. I also have pain in the left arm that is worst at the elbow and radiates up and down from there. X-ray of elbow showed no fracture, but x-rays of spine and neck showed severe degenerative arthritis at all levels which apparently has gotten worse over the last few years.
I can't get in to see the spine specialist for 2 weeks and the same for PT.
My primary care doctor wants to see me Friday to discuss several issues, including hypothyroidism, prediabetes and the spine problems. I don't know what can be done but my overall pain level is not good and I am using a cane to help me up and down from a chair and also to keep my balance when walking. In addition, I have a severe headache.
I was hoping to go back to work tomorrow but I do not feel well enough and since my primary doctor gave me an appointment for 9:00 a.m. on Friday, I will not go in then either.
