since my last update on PTS, i have been going for physio and have been told on my last visit that there is nothing more that can be done for me. so i went home and started my own exercises doing wall climbs etc. what seems to help is push ups. i have been following Chris Drake on youtube. he highly recommends push ups. i can barely do 1 because of the pain and arm/shoulder weakness so i do something called "girl push ups (using your knees intead of the feet). also i have started with planks. it is very slow but progressive. i was prescribed lyrica meds but have read that the side effects are dangerous. so i have not been taking any pain or nerve medication for the past few months and deal with the pain on a day to day basis. i have slowly stated to move my am towards my head. with pain and some difficulty i have been able to do some movements above my shoulder. everyday i try grabbing the top of the wall which is about 2 meters high with just my affected arm. i do this for about 3 or 4 times depending on how puch pain i can tolerate. the muscle waste is still there as well as the numbness. i still do not have most of the range but have been making slight progress in terms of raising my hand above my head. the outwards range is still very painful and difficult. i guess we have to take things 1 day at a time and keep being positive.
