After undergoing a few months of physiotherapy during which the symptoms I had seemed to get progressively worse, I revisited my doctor who then suggested I get a few blood tests. I received a call a few days later that confirmed there was nothing wrong. Though I don't remember exactly what was said, the Doctor pretty much told me she was out of ideas and couldn't pin point a particular reason for my ongoing pain. Her suggestion was that I give yoga a try to strengthen my overall body. This was particularly disheartening as it had felt like I'd reached a dead end in my attempt to overcome my arm and shoulder pain and had began to begrudgingly accept that this may be something I have to deal with on a permanent basis. Thinking back to that period I remind myself that I have come a long way since then. Although I am by no means pain free at this early stage, generally speaking the pain isn't accompanied with the same sense of fear and confusion as before. I am becoming better at identifying certain stressful factors on a day to day basis that contribute to the occurrence of pain and therefore it's not an issue that concerns me as it it did before.
