Christ. My rotator cuff is trashed. I can barely lift my arm above the shoulder, it keeps spazzing out on me randomly and going in the wrong directions, and it feels like somebody took a sledgehammer to my clavicle. It’s hot to the touch, and every time I move my arm my rotator cuff pops and snaps like a bag of popcorn in a microwave.
This explains, of course, the pain in my elbow and forearm I mentioned a few days ago. It had been so long since my rotator cuff had acted up that it hadn’t occurred to me that that was the problem.
Luckily I can still type, if I just rest my wrists on the laptop. Playing guitar is pretty much an impossibility — which sucks, since I need to drop some final tracks for the album.
Apparently, rotator cuffs don’t heal themselves. So I have no idea what to do about this, other than to not move my arm.
