What part of your body is giving you problems today?

--my right eye has felt like there's something in it for weeks. grr.

--My right elbow HURTS LIKE A MOFO!

I've had trouble with my left elbow for a while (pinched nerve/tennis elbow whatever), but now my right's acting up too. Prob'ly 'cause I'm fat and everything's squished and inflamed in there, but don't know what to do. Don't want cortisone injections. any ideas?

What's wrong with cortisone injections? I ask because the pain in my wrist is not improving with R.I.C.E.

you have to go to the doctors office, with all the hassle, stupid testing, and expense that entails, and I think it's only short-term symptomatic relief. I'm not saying I wouldn't do it, just that it's not my first choice.

Did a parents vs. 5th grade girls soccer game yesterday. Now my legs are a little sore. Didn't stop us from doing a nice father's day hike this morning.

It seems to me I remember a baseball player getting an improperly administered cortisone shot that put him on the disabled list for a little while.

My right hammy is tight today but it didn't mess up my ride.

Same as its been for months. Complete overall exhaustion, I am so tired of being tired all the time. My sleep opportunity window is not mine to choose and it just isn't enough.
For the last 3 days its been my neck. I tweaked it somehow and it hasn't been right since.
Oh an my ears have been ringing for about 3 weeks as well. BP, pulse and all the easy stuff checked out fine.

Are you drinking enough water?

My ears have been ringing for about a quarter century now. It continues to suck.

I think so - I drink a lot - probably 4 - 12 oz. bottles a day.

The physical part. My etheric body is crescent fresh. In fact, it's super cress!
