Happy Tuesday! It's so lovely that it's not Monday. I hope you enjoyed the long weekend!
My week started out with a 7:15a chiropractor appointment. I've never been, but since my neck/back pain has now been around for about 2 months, I figured it was worth a try. I didn't feel that it was an injury as a result of something, so I thought maybe a chiro was a good idea. I did an informal poll on facebook and got VERY mixed results, but I decided to give it a try.
Based upon this morning's appointment, he thinks I have a nerve issue which is showing itself in one of the muscles in my back. He did some poking and prodding to find the pain, then took two quick x-rays and sent me off for some electro stimulation (if that's what it's called) and icing. I felt it but am not sure what it did, if anything. He'd like me to go back 3 times in the next week, which is easier said than done, but I will try. I'm a bit nervous since my insurance likes to not cover things but I guess I need the treatment.
I was freaked out by the thought of an alignment or any cracking so I guess this was better. While it does hurt, at least it doesn't impede me from doing anything.
Now on a COMPLETELY different note, I'm going to take back my endorsement of the OPI Axium gel. Or maybe just throw out a buyer beware. I'm not sure if it's because I removed them myself, but these took a huge toll on my nails. They're now super weak, uneven, and brittle. I got a pedicure on Friday and the woman actually advised me to only use the gel on occasion and never more than once a month. Interesting. Maybe my nails would be in better shape if a salon removed them, but I don't know. As much as I loved the way it looked, I probably won't do it again any time soon.
Well, things to get done. Have a great day!!
