cervical radiculopathy Pebrero 24, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,my immortal life,nurse's notes — nixinne @ 1:25 hapon

in short, pinched nerves on my C6..

yea…the doctor said i probably have a nerve damage on my C6 form pulling 300 lb patients. first, i got the rotator cuff injury on my left arm..now this…i dont even want to think what else will happen to my health on the course of this career…

i love my job…i love helping sick people…i love my staff… i think they are the best staff to work with…they yawn, whine and groan but ultimately we all help each other. we also put patient’s first before anything…they were very considerate about my cervical radiculopathy with for me is “cervical ridiculousness”…

symptoms include…numbness & tingling sensation shooting from neck to fingers of the affected extremity. if you are a little bit more unlucky like iam, you will also experience severe pain from time to time. in my case, even if i need rest, i cannot stop working not just because i have to pay bills but because we are too short of nurses as it is and ther is only 2 charge nurse at night – one being yours truly…

doctor prescribed a nerve pain pill called lyrica and a non steroidal anti inflammatory drug called lodine. i will also have physical therapy on monday then another doctors appointment next week. i am hoping this will heal soon coz it israther infuriating when you are helpless yourself in the medical field…i would like to be able to help my staff in moving patients but i am limited to


circus adventure & the pub Pebrero 23, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,hobbies in my mind,party pack — nixinne @ 12:56 hapon

once again, i regressed to my childhood.

we went to ringling brothers / barnum baileys circus last night. the greatest show on earth! it was so awesome! i got to eat some hotdogs, french fries and snow come on a clown cup! yummyyy! the knoxville civic coliseum is small ehough for us to see everything that was going on from our high end seats. i loved everything about it. the clowns and their funny antics, the dogs and their bouncy adventures with the clowns, the tigers with their very very brave animal trainer (funny part of that was one of the tigers was humping the other tiger infront of the crowd! ha ha ha!), the horses and their acrobatic riders, the elephants and their modeling show. They also have death defying stunts that i almost couldnt bear to watch such as the aerialists who would wrap themselves with this massive curtains in their body and just dangle form the ceiling, the flying acrobatic stunts, the man wo was walking upside down and most of all, the crazy motorcyle roundabout of 7 motorcycle inside a relatively small metal cage!…ugh!!! anyhow, i had fun…

the irish pub and restaurant was aour next agenda since we were all starving…for beer and food. so we went to turkey creek adn sat on that pub. the late night meals was obviously great! i had a corned beef and potato soup along with my corned beef and cabbage meal (which is my favorite irish meal anyway). the booys were hungry for sheperds pie but could not get it late night so they settled with some sausages and sandwiches. the nectar of the gods was served perfectly on a guiness glass. yummy!

rotator cuff injury Pebrero 20, 2007

Filed under: english alphabet,nurse's notes — nixinne @ 2:28 hapon

personally? it’s painful! i have never taken drugs so much in my adult life! i was basically a zombie after such drugs but it numb me i guess. anyway, i thought i should post an article about rotator cuff injury since its a personal experience!

thanks to mayoclinic.com

Rotator cuff injury

Your rotator cuff is made up of the muscles and tendons in your shoulder. Four major muscles (subscapularis, supraspinatus, infraspinatus and teres minor) and their tendons connect your upper arm bone (humerus) with your shoulder blade. They also help hold the ball of your upper arm bone firmly in your shoulder socket, as if holding a golf ball on a tee. The combination results in the greatest range of motion of any joint in your body.

Rotator cuff injuries are fairly common. Causes of the injury may include falling, lifting and repetitive arm activities, especially those done overhead. These activities may include throwing a baseball, reaching up to work on a car on a rack or placing items on shelves above your head. The injury is also common among people whose jobs or hobbies include heavy demands on their shoulders, such as athletes, archers and people in the construction trades. Poor posture, especially as related to your shoulders hunched forward, also can contribute to rotator cuff injury. As you get older, your risk of a rotator cuff injury increases.



end result of the clinical problem

Filed under: english alphabet — nixinne @ 2:24 hapon

my day yesterday was a big hassle. not only to my job but also to me! i went to my appointment with the work comp doctor. he is thinking abnout two things: a rotator cuff injury or a c6 disc problem. he injected some lidocaine on my left shoulder to numb the area before injecting in the very, very painful corticosteroids, i thought it would be very painful but i was crushing my small finger with my fingernails so i can divert my attention and it was not so bad after all (well..my finger had a dent mark on itfrom my fingernails). he said that this should decrease the swelling on that joint and if that worked then it must be a rotator cuff injury but if not, then we might have to look at my neck though magnetic resonance imaging (mri). he then gave me some topical corticosteroids for ym painful shoulder (between scapula and clavicle) which i have to wrap with saran wrap! awkward but is need. then employee health made me do some drug testing. then on to getting prescription. i have to be back on friday for follow up and if it does not improve at all, we might have to do some physical therapy and pursue the cervical mri. it seems today that the pain was alleviated a notch, i will have to see how it goes today. then back to work tomorrow!!!

i agree. drama is much more exaggerated when we were younger. i guess, as we grow older, some of us realized the inconvenience of such thing.

But sometimes, “adult drama” is more dramatic. Redundant, eh?

– and this is what my reply is…

would agree to both of you in some way (darn, i think im becoming more and more of a relativist than anythign else!). i guess we have so much emotion growing up that everything is exaggerated i.e. lost paper, a fight over a spilled soda, a bruise on the knee etc then it becomes worst when you become a teenager, when friends and lovers becomes a part of your being. it cooks up a much rather mixed portion of emotions. then as our hormones and neurotransmitters shrink in numbers to oblivion (as we grow old), the aftermath of these are less emotic human being that has a broader view of the world…that is, if you ever find the right motiviation to do so! so what im really saying is it is not just getting older that makes you wiser…the drama prevails in everyone’s life, be it may a child, adolescent or an adult, it is also the experiences that comes along with the everyday chaos we have to undergo everyday, how we perceive the experience and how we deal with it!
