I'd forgotten about the lower back pain until I did laundry a few nights later. Okay, we can check that one off the list.
This morning, I got to work and pulled my cart out of the van. Rather than lift things and use my Vera Metro bag, I've taken to using a teacher's crate on wheels. In doing so, I dropped my keys. I thought it was just me being the klutz I tend to be, but noticed the left arm (unaffected side) was really heavy and numb.
I went to grab the keys with my left hand and it was like I was watching that claw game where I'd just nicked something, it got pulled up, but falls back into the pile of prizes. Crap. So I tried again, same thing. Then a third time without success. Crapity crap.
I gave up, picked up the keys with my right hand and hooked the ring on one of my fingers to make sure I didn't drop them again. The numbness went away after about 20 minutes and didn't come back, but I'm worried about whether it'll come back tomorrow.
At least I have the EMG scheduled with my neurologist Monday, and I will mention it to him. I sure hope that doesn't get me stuck with needles on both sides of my shoulders!
