OK well after all this wondering what all my shoulder pain is about, we have something of an answer. We've all been guessing at what it might be. If you're looking for a frozen shoulder to cry on, you'll have to look somewhere else. My shoulder is not frozen. I have a mass on my arm. The humerus, to be exact. The funny bone. the one that runs from your elbow to your shoulder. I'll tell you what's funny: the things that run through the mind when you finally get a diagnosis for something you've been suffering with for years: "a HA! it's real! i told you so! Oh crap! it's real! is it going to kill me?" A mass. that sounds so... massive. What does it mean? a mass of what? So of course I can't get any kind of game plan or more specific diagnosis until I go to an orthopedic guy/ gal. Sign. I hate limbo. I don't even like to do the limbo. But I can't go to the doctor anytime in the next couple days. I do guitar lessons and performances. I can't just cancel those unless i'm nearly dead. So I have to just get through the next few days then see if I can get into the specialist. First the MRI. Then the XRays. Backwards, I know. Next I may have to get a catscan. What's the difference between a catscan and an MRI? Is the clanking sound more annoying? My right arm is getting so many pictures of it, it's starting to feel like Lindsay Lohan. If I don't look out it's going to start running around drunk to dance clubs with no panties on and buying designer clothes. And my left arm is getting a complex. "Hey I'm cute! Someone take a picture of me! How come the bad arm gets all the attention?" My theory is that it's arthritis caused by guitar playing in my case. Ot the guitar case in my playing. Or too many wise cracks, trying too hard to be massively humerus. I'm getting really tired of going to the doctor. Where's my &^%^ lollipop, anyway?

connie gray May 05, 2010 @12:51 am Must be the day for medical news...my daughter just found out she has a 4X3cm mass on her thyroid and is scheduled to see a surgeon on thurs. Due to size will have to come out even if not cancerous, so at least no needle biopsy, they can do pathology after it is removed (good news!) Diff between CT and MRI is MRI shows the magnetic imaging of the living body and a CT shows the structures only. No diff between a ct result on a living person vs a dead one (would matter to the dead person...well not really cuz their dead, you get what I mean) so they show different stuff. Often times brain tumors don't show up on CT but will on mri. Have you read up on epigenetics? Fascinating explanations of what flips on those switches for illnesses which we are genetically programmed. Take your vitamins!
