Thank You

I would just like to give a big shout out and THANK YOU to WebMD. Have you tried their symptom checker? It's great fun....especially if you have like muscle pain in your arm and want to see what is causing it, but then find out you could have one of the following:

fibromyalgia
median nerve injury
shingles


or, and this one is my FAVORITE:

chemical burns.

Don't you think I would know if I burned my arm with a chemical or damaged my nerves?? All I really wanted to know was why my arm hurt. I was hoping they'd tell me which muscle I pulled.

SO, here is a BIG FAT THANK YOU to WebMD for SUCCESSFULLY and TOTALLY FREAKING ME OUT! It's a good thing I just went to the doctor and she told me my heart and lungs sounded fine, because when you search for heart burn you get a whole bunch of scary diseases!!

My best advice? If it keeps bugging you after a week, call the doctor. If it hurts enough to make you cry, go see the doctor ASAP. Of course, that's just me though.... to each his/her own!

Are you Pregnant? that can make muscle aches and anxiety. Just remember the story of Jana putting in her symptoms and being diagnosed with Downsyndrom. at least a chemical burn is treat able.

Dang You Lynsey!! You ruined my comment!! I was going to say...
Joanna, It sounds like you might have a bad case of anxiety. Either that or downs syndrome!

Curses! Foiled again!
