    I'm off to the doc's later this morning as things aren't getting any better, in fact my other wrist is quite sore too. I'm thinking it's something like tendonitis, guess I'll find out soon enough!

    Hmm, that doesn't sound good Greys. You've given it a few days to get better, so a trip to the Dr is the best thing. Please let us know what the diagnosis is.

    Oh yeh. We used it at stud, I use it on the dogs, and myself. Its great stuff!!!
    Also if it keeps up it is a good thing to have a wrist brace in your draw. You can get them fron the $2 shop if you dont want a really good one. As sprains can take quite a while to heal it is a good thing to have on hand when you have to do the heavy lifting!

    If you seek understanding listen to the music, not the song.

    Well I'm back from the doc's - all signs point to tendonitis. I have to rest the wrists as much as possible (yep that'll be easy NOT), as well as a bit of massage with some deep heat or similar, and we'll review in a week. He's given me some panadeine forte but only IF I need them.

    If no better in a week then we x-ray.

    So I don't know, good news? bad news? Neither, although now I really do have an excuse not to do housework!

    Nah, one week away was too long. Grab some chopsticks and poke the keyboard with those. Won't look much different from all my typing errors. Lol.
