ok, so i have calmed down a bunch. the weird thing is that the pain is worst when im relaxed. i can work all day without the pain being above about 4 on the 1-10 scale. its when the shoulder relaxes that the pain gets intense. hence why im not sleeping. any way now that iv been up a wile the pain has gone away for the most part. but of coarse it will be right back tonight. any way i am blessed as to who i am friends with. one of my friends wife's is the patient advocate at the VA hospital i go to. i talked to him, and she is going to see what she can do to speed up the process, and get me all the necessary pain meds to deal with it untill i see the orthopedic speshalist. will keep you guys up on how its going thanks for the prayers.
