The ibuprofen just wasn't doing a thing to help. After struggling thru a one handed shower and trying to dry off, get dressed, do something with my hair and make up, I drove one handed thru the pouring rain to have something....anything that might help relieve this pain.
After the doc attempted to
I laid down, looked in the other direction, he wiped the spot and then in went this needle that I never saw but could have sworn went straight thru my wrist. It hurt so bad I lifted my back side right off the cot while he is still trying to administer this steroid with pain reliever into my wrist. You can only imagine the reaction on my end. Pain....Ouch, ouch ouch....Never again!
It only lasted maybe 2 hrs, the little bit of relief from the shot that is. He said because it was so painful while he was administering it he didn't give me the whole dose....and that's fine. I have very small wrists, it doesn't take much.
But, he did give me prescription pain meds and told me to ice it and that I couldn't ice it too much. So that is what I have been doing since last night. And he told me to not wear my brace, but to use an ACE bandage wrap (which they had just used their last one on the patient before me), so I had to pick one of those up too.
Rough night last night! Rough morning.....still icing. Spot of injection is bruised and very sore. The spot where that tiny needle went in is still very noticeable....it isn't so tiny can I just say!
Oh BTW, he labeled it Neuralgia. Well, just thought I would update! Back to my ice, Thanks for stopping!
