    What Hurts Today??


    Here's how to play:

    Wake up, get out of bed like this

    Think to yourself "What the hell have I done to myself?"

    Consider recent activities

    Try to find the MOST POPULAR ANSWER TO THE QUESTION:

    WHAT HURTS TODAY???



    I have an unexpected thing going on in my left shoulder, almost over the odd butt sciatica that has been twinging me the last couple of weeks. Much to do and this is kinda normal coming out of winter slumber and ramping up activities but grows a bit worse as I get older.

    I could do 12 episodes if you're shooting in my off season (Dec~Apr) from Murdoch Mysteries. I can do "old/cranky", "get that dirty old man away from my 50yr old daughter" , "63 verging on 19" kind of stuff...easy!:D

    Be careful what you wish for! I could belly-ache about my ailments for a whole solid page.

    The tinnitus is getting loud and persistent; the arthritis that has been slowly getting to my finger joints for 20+ years is starting to become a real issue; I feel compelled to go "Urgh" whenever I bend down for anything; I have a compelling need to go for a pee at the least convenient moments...

    You do want to read the full page, don't you? :sneaky:

    The little noises are certainly getting more common for me as well. I swear I was once able to bend down and pick something up without going "oof." It's strange because I don't try to say "oof" it just comes out on it's own.

    It's always going to be my right leg, remnants of a horrible hip injury.

    Takes all the fun out of the game. It's supposed to be random and unexpected... The fact that my ears don't work is really annoying, but never a surprise. The fact that my shoulder hurts and I am not sure why, provides some entertainment value.

    Sorry to hear about the hip, though.

    I'm sorry to hear that. I saw my school friend Jim on Friday. He's fine now, but he had a hip operation maybe 35 years ago that didn't work out and left him in really bad pain for years.

    Luckily for you, he's not on Strat-Talk, because he has several congenital conditions.

    While I probably share some of the aliments that will be listed in this thread, I reserve the right to keep as silent as I can, sparing any interruption of joint cracking, grumbling, and/or flatulence.

    I've been in commercial masonry for 30 years. The pain is no mystery

    Oh, if you want 'fun', going back maybe 40 years, my friend Jim forgot he had a hospital appointment. He was late for work, saw his mom had a load of washing dry, and grabbed a pair of what we often call 'pants'. I mean the underwear you might call shorts, or boxers, or briefs.

    Later on, he remembered the appointment with a 'specialist', that is to say, someone who is a medical professional who is an expert in certain types of medical conditions. What he didn't know is this man was a professor, and therefore demonstrated what he knew to his students.

    All of this would probably have been OK, apart for one thing. Jim had grabbed a pair of his Dad's 'pants' off the line. And they were massively too big for Jim.

    And that is how he ended up in a large lecture theater, being twisted and turned by the professor, while he exposed his genitalia to row-after-row of students while wearing his Dad's massively unglamorous over-sized underwear.

    His friends like to think he is fully recovered from the psychological trauma, but we can never be entirely sure.

    Not a big deal unless there was a surprise guest appearance.

    All my teenage/early twenties skateboard related medical mishaps are starting to make their voices heard now, looking forward to the late twenties/thirties mountain bike free ride misadventures kicking in soon. Still it was fun while it lasted...

    Basically, you're masking it. We live near the sea, and walk along the coast most days. The imaginary noise of my tinnitus is often louder that the sound of the rolling waves, but it is less noticeable.

    Another way to think of it is this: your brain so wants to believe it is receiving information at the frequencies your ears can't actually detect any more, it creates a 'hash' of imaginary sound it thinks 'must' be there.

    Some people find hearing aids help, because the signal-to-noise (imagined) ratio improves.

    You want to hear the really crappy part?? You can go totally deaf and still have the tinnitus. I would think this points toward it being a brain or auditory nerve function.

    Yep...
    I suffer (suffered?) from Sudden Deafness Syndrome. Happened when I was 11 or 12, woke up one morning and the hearing in my right ear was completely gone, except for a ringing.
    The ringing is still there... it's about the same sound as the flyback transformer on an old TV. Too bad that's now about the only thing I can hear above 5khz.

    But the eyes have been wonky lately.
    I got a new prescription last summer. A few weeks ago, I noticed my distance vision was worsening. Got the RX adjusted, and at the same time saw the regular doc and she confirmed Type-2 :facepalm:
    So last Thursday, I went in for dilation and retinal photos.
    I don't know if I strained my eyes trying to focus while dilated or what, but my distance vision is now 100% "hawk eye".
    I'm able to read street signs and license plates at distances I haven't been able to work without glasses in 30 years.
    The problem is, my near-field has gone to crap.
    With my bifocals, I'm still good for reading and middle-near field, the problem is, monitors... a week ago, were at a distance where I didn't need glasses. Now I need them, but have to tilt my head back to bring the bifocals up.
    I need to get a set of readers with the same script as my bifocals... I don't want to pay another $600 for a new pair after just getting a new pair.

    Trip to the Eye Doctor

    TD: I've just got new glasses last year but cannot see very well anymore.
    Doc: Mr TD, I have good news and bad news.
    TD: Give me the bad news first.
    Doc: You have cataracts.
    TD: So what's the good news?
    Doc: After we do cataract surgery, you'll have 20/20 vision.

    One of the smartest men that I have known in my life had a philosophical saying that he was fond of expressing.

    "Life sucks....and then, you die".
