I had a snowboarding accident, I’m always either in pain or dull and achy- am I cursed?
I had a snowboarding accident 6 years ago. I tumbled down a small ski mountain and landed on my left shoulder at an odd angle before I stopped flat on my back with my feet twisted completely backwards (with the snowboard attached). I was driven to the urgent care clinic and told I sprained my shoulder, my ankles, and have concussion (that lasted 6 months). They gave me a sling and crutches and sent me off. A year later I came back with a pinched nerve and my shoulder, and in checking it out they uncovered a long list of issues connected to the accident: weakened ankles and knees (I’d have sudden shooting pains and my legs would give out), left hip at a lower angle than the other, and as well as a pinched nerve in my left shoulder that had been numbing my entire arm, the muscles around my shoulder blade were so loose the bone was winging out. Rock hard, painful and aching muscles that were so tight neither my physical therapist nor a professional masseuse could work them out, even with electric -therapy. I’ve been in physical therapy for 6 years straight, get a massage here and there, try and work out knots with the thera cane I was given, but I’m always either in pain or dull and achy in my left shoulder, neck, and sore all up and spine and near both shoulder blades now. When I walk too much my left tilted hips aches. It’s hard for me to sleep as I sleep curled on my left side. I’ve been to the hospital and they told me it was all a muscle issue and that I ought to just keep doing physical therapy, but other than taking away the brunt of the agony, it’s really not doing much. Am I just cursed to do all this physical therapy for the rest of my life and be in pain, or is there anything at all more I can do??
No you are not cursed,you are being tested by God…
It seems you are doing everything in order and doing your best in the treatment ,you have to be patient and do your physiotherapy , but try getting good hydrotherapy for the strength of your shoulder and lower limb muscles,eat well vitamin B rich foods, ask your physiotherapist to teach you postural correction exercise and maintain a right posture of your pelvis and back..
if physical therapy isnt helping you,then there is no point in continuing it. At present, you can get an mri done of the concerned parts and see to what extent the internal wounds have healed.
if there is a persistent muscular or ligament swelling in any region,then treatment options like laser therapy, local steroid shot injections are the other options available. You should stop having that feeling of being cursed. Science has advanced, and you can always use latest advances in treatment.
DO NOT FEEL SO MUCH GULITY OR CURSED. THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE AROUND WHO ARE SUFFERING FROM MANY DISABLING MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND STILL FIGHTING IT OUT.
DO NOT LOSE HOPE. CONTINUE TO FIGHT. YOU WILL FEEL RELIEVED ONE DAY.
