Aching

Went to a Chinese Doctor today because I think my sleeping posture cause me to have a sore shoulder that eventually the aching pain travelled down to my arm and leg on the left side of my body.Cost me RM103 to go get acupuncture from him and a medicine that taste like “Bak Kut Teh” without the bak kut haha.

This morning, my index finger and my thumb were painful and any pressure on it would make me want to cry. After visiting the Chinese doctor, the fingers are finally no longer painful. Only the shoulders now and the neck are slightly sore now. At least I can finally bend my arms to reach for my other arm… I couldn’t before.
The doctor said it could be accumulative of the wrong sleeping posture and stress. Here is what I wonder; I don’t think it is my sleeping posture; I blame my lousy mattress that is flat and slanted. I need a new bed… badly and a new pillow too! Haha.

It is finally raining! After a hot night; and a hot Saturday and Sunday; it is now raining very heavily at my place here. Be glad to go home and sleep tonight! Cold night means nice to sleep.
Here is a comic I found for a rainy time like this.


Hope you all have a great Monday!

Get well soon. If pain persists, why don't you see a chiropractor? Sleeping in the proper posture is important.

cherie said...

oh! i am sorry to hear that! i hope you feel better soon!

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : Well, that is very true. But I will be moving soon so I don't want to get a new mattress now yet.

ladyviral said...

Mei Teng : Thanks! Yea if the pain persist.. though it really has nothing to do with bone though.. cause I myself can feel my shoulders being stiff.

ladyviral said...

cherie : Thanks, cherie! I am better today ^__^

foongpc said...

hi! Now I'm back from China, I can go blog spamming again! Haha!

foongpc said...

Ooh! Sorry to hear about your body pain. So it's not your sleeping posture but your mattress? Better buy a new one with good support. Very important since you spend one third of your day on it!

foongpc said...

I always suffer neck pain sleeping in hotel beds, because their pillows are either too soft or too low. I need firm pillows to support my neck!

foongpc said...

And sleeping in AirAsia planes is killing! Really bad for my neck! No support at all! Won't consider AirAsia if travel far ie more than 4 hours! Or maybe bring my own neck support cushion next time! : )

foongpc said...

Medicine taste like bak kut teh without the bak kut? Hmmm, can't imagine how that would taste like! Hehe

foongpc said...

Love the rain when I sleep! But these days, mostly sleep with the aircon on if not cannot survive! I'm such a city boy! Haha!

foongpc said...

Sorry to be spamming your blog, can't help it! After almost 2 weeks not spamming and blogging in China, it's payback time! Haha!!

foongpc said...

Haha! The cartoon is funny. So desperate, your umbrella or your life? Take the umbrella pls! : )

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Welcome home! I think this is the 3rd time I am welcoming you home! hahaha! You were missed!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Oh yes it is true.. we do spend most of our time in bed.. but since I am moving in with my husband to be soon, so I will not get one now :P.

Oh I need a firm pillow too! My neck is always in need of that support, else it aches very fast!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : AirAsia flights huh? Sounds like a good tip to me! But if I were to take AirAsia, I swear I would be afraid to sleep! hahaha. But then again, any flight sleeping sitting will hurt the neck >.<;

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Hahaha yea bak kut teh medicine without the pork taste :P. My colleagues said it smells like bak kut teh too! So I am not insane ya see hahaha.

Oh yes I love sleeping when it is raining too! Cold and comfortable! Heat sucks and since I don't have an air-cond, I always have problem sleeping when it is hot. Naw don't call yourself a city-boy hahaha... eventually with such weather now, I bet 99% of the people are relying on air-cond!

ladyviral said...

foongpc : Hahaha go ahead spam all you want! I am more than welcome for you to spam me all the time :P.

Hahaha! Yes the cartoon is xD. Poor people, getting rob for umbrella! hahhaa!

xin said...

take care my dear! my colleague had some posture prob too and ended up with a slipped disc. it got so bad that he couldn't walk and had to rely on pain killers for some time. so i hope yr prob can be treated asap so it will not develop into something bad

ladyviral said...

xin : I heard of this sli disc thing before... It is really a major issue if that happens!

Thanks, xin. I must definitely look after my back bone.. too senstive to let overlook again.

Faisal Admar said...
