De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis – Lefty | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

In my last real blog post, My Ganglion Cyst – The Tetralogy, I had mentioned my hand pain once again, as I have in many of my posts. As I have mentioned before in blog posts like Ganglionectomy, Lumpy and Bumpy, One Step Forward, I suffer from a ganglion cyst that won’t leave me be.… Continue reading De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis – Lefty | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

In that case, I have a lot to discuss. From injections #3 up until #10, I have gone through a lot, so you can… Continue reading Stelara Self-Injections 3 – 10

I’ve Caught This Migraine Too Late | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

It is after 3 o'clock in the afternoon and I'm back in bed. I had just gotten up around noon. My head is pounding. I've caught this migraine too late. Now I get to suffer until it goes away. It could take hours, even days. I've taken medicine. I've taken a lot of medicine. And… Continue reading I’ve Caught This Migraine Too Late | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

My Wonky Ribs and Neurectomy | IT COULD BE WORSE BLOG

Thoracic Thoracic seems to be another clinic that I frequent. I have suffered from rib pain for about a year now. Sudden onset of pain, with two major areas of focus on my left side.

Well, shit. It has been over a month, almost two, since my last blog post, and it'll probably be exactly two months time by the time I get this written and edited, photos added and the post uploaded.

And then, of course, Saturdays post happened - Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down - and I couldn't focus on this post… Continue reading No Luck of the Irish for Me
