Shoulder Update
Bar Harbor

Yesterday I met with Dr. Comeau, the shoulder specialist, and had some X-Rays done.

Diagnosis:
• Impingement Syndrome (as expected)
• Arthritis
• “Golfer’s Elbow”

He’s prescribed Physical Therapy twice a week, and for me to see him again in 6-8 weeks to see how well that is doing. He is confident that we can improve things significantly, though not necessarily fast. My first appointment is for next Wednesday morning. Not sure yet if there will be a regular schedule, or if it will be more arbitrary…

He didn’t have any clear way to address my sleep issues, but did prescribe a new painkiller to try. It didn’t seem to work last night, but I’ll keep trying for at least a few more before adding it to the (sadly long) list of “drugs that don’t work for Alexx”. I have an appointment with my GP Monday evening. Hopefully she will be able to address the acute sleep issues, or at least make a stab at it.

Here's hoping it all works.

There's a new sleeping pill out there (they've got me on) you might want to ask about-Intermezzo. It's under-the-tongue . . .
