So, I have this pain in my upper arm/shoulder area that’s been there for more than a week now and it just won’t go away.
If I were to describe the pain, I would compare it to tennis elbow, which incidentally I did suffer years ago when I was playing tennis routinely.
The good news is it’s on my right arm and I don’t have any other symptoms associated with a heart attack.
The bad news is it’s on my right arm and I’m right-handed, which means it slows me down considerably. Simple everyday chores take double the amount of time they normally take. That includes typing and therefore, blogging, which is frustrating.
On the upside, I’ve been receiving a lot of daily TLC from the hubster which includes therapeutic massages. Yes, he fancies himself a sports team physician owing to his watching sports on TV 24/7. Silly man! Oh, well, at least I have something to laugh about.
Now take a look at these!
“Have you seen anything this pretty?! Maybe you have, but have you seen COOKIES this pretty?! Surely NOT! Just wonderful! I’m getting myself some mooncake molds, oh yeah!” — Angie
“Oh my, Lizet! These are just so gorgeous, and pretty clever at that! Deciding what to put in them will be the most difficult! Yummy!” — Laurena
“If you’ve never tried this decadent British dessert, here’s the perfect recipe! Kate has a great story behind this recipe too (watch the sound clip)!” — Laurena
“Yes, look again! This is vegetable for dessert! Swati has made a delicious halwa with options for everyone! Five a day the easy way!” — Laurena

Oh no Angie – hope you get better quickly. Hopefully you can have a rest this weekend! Sending healthy vibes your way! 😀 xxx
I’m trying to rest as much as possible. My arm does feel better with rest. Thanks, Laurena!

Thanks, Jhuls! And thanks for cohosting, too! ?

Thanks so much!

Sorry to hear you are in pain Angie, I can so relate having had my wrist fractured towards the end of last year. I bet it does make all the activities so much trickier but at last you are getting massages 🙂 Hope the pain goes away very soon! x
Ouch, fractured wrist sounds too painful. I don’t think I’ve fractured anything, I’d be crying and screaming if that happens. What I have is most likely tendinitis. Still, the pain is real and I know it’ll take time to heal since I had it before. Thanks, Jo!

Oh my gosh Angie get to the doc! I am having so many issues, and it took me forever to get through the process of docs, xrays, cortisone shots, referrals, MRI’s and to physical therapy which took a while to get into, where she basically told me since it had been a couple of months (October) it will take longer to get in shape. And surgery is warranted for my other shoulder.
And then there are all the other issues in neck, elbow and hand, partially from compensating. oiy! – that’s why I missed last week! I never miss FF! And why I’m not visiting around like usual!
But, I’m getting better! And I’m here now!! And so far so many interesting posts!! And I want to make a bakewell tart!!
But what was the diagnosis they gave you? I’m baffled by my condition. I don’t think I did anything that could have explained it. Occasionally after stapling a bunch of papers I do get sore, but it’ll go away in a day or two. This time the pain stays, and hasn’t really abated much. I’ve made an appointment to see the doctor but it’s not until next week!
Owwee, I feel your pain, sounds stress induced if you ask me, I always get a pain in my neck or between my shoulders when I’m dwelling on something. In other news…LOVE the collection of recipes in your round up this week, great to see Kate’s gluten free Bakewell in there too – all the yums!
You may be right; I should learn some de-stressing techniques. Maybe meditation? It feels calming already just thinking about it. Love that Bakewell tart, too!
Even I have similar pain for 2 yrs now in my right hand…still haven’t improved as I’m right handed too though I try to use my left hand when the pain becomes severe. Regarding the round up, all these delicacies makes me want to try. Will start from breakfast cups.
2 years is a long time to be in pain, Lathi. I hope it won’t take me too long to heal, whatever the problem is. I’m going to give the breakfast cups a try, too.

May you get better soonest, Angie! And likewise Frugal — both of you heal up and take it easy while your body does whatever is needed to get you both there.
Thanks, Diann! Been trying not to use my right arm as much, and it feels like it’s getting better at times.
Take care Angie don’t stress the hand too much try to do less work and enjoy the massages!! Thank you so much much for featuring Gajar Halwa in the roundup!! It is one of the most loved Indian desserts during winters!! Loved all the featured posts!! @ Laurena thanks for your lovely words!!
Thanks, Swati. I’ll try to follow your advice; I do feel better after resting. I think your Gajar Halwa sounds delicious!
I hope your doctor will be able to accurately diagnose the problem and find a solution for a speedy recovery; take care, Angie!
I hope so, too, Irene. Thank you!
