Knitter Down...I Repeat, We Have a Knitter Down...

It's probably not that dramatic, well maybe it is, who can say for sure....but I can say this, right now from my elbow to my wrist is some gnarly pain that was flared last night after knitting 6 rows of the Shawl...SIX ROWS and then WHAMMO! so much pain. This isn't the first day I've had this, I've actually been ignoring for a few days...okay, I've been ignoring it for a couple weeks but this is the worst it's been...So, I've made inquiries as to which doctor to see and am waiting to hear back to make an appointment...while I wait ice packs, and copious amounts of pain meds (don't worry by copius I really mean, recommended daily dose) are being taken with the shedding of a few tears while I fondle my knitting...
stay tuned...this can't possibly last forever
xoxoxo

p.s. Fati...don't worry I have a plan if this whole wrist issues blows out of control...

OH NO! Not a knitter down!!! So sorry to hear it -- hope you get well soon! It might just be tendonitis, which needs complete rest in order to get better. It may help to wear a wristgaurd (the kind that keeps your wrist from bending) especially at night.

I had severe tendonitis in both wrists when Nathan was really little from having to carry him around so much.

Feel better soon!

P.S. - I like your blog's new color scheme!

Thanks Kelly! I've been wearing a wrist brace at night butI think I really irritated it this time!
I like the new scheme too..I was just playing around with it a bit..I might play some more at home tonight!

oh no!! I hope your wrist is felling better soon- I find that I can get a lot of achy-ness in my wrists if I knit too much in a single day on small needles.
