Thorn in my side

So now I am getting a little concerned about the rib. I woke up this morning with severe pain on my left side. I couldn’t breathe deeply and every movement hurt. The first waking memory I had was an audible click in my ribs. We tried a heat pack before I tried to get up and then a hot shower to see if it loosened or relaxed the surrounding muscles. It did not really help.
I am back on the painkillers and anti-inflammatories and when they kick in I will try and lie down again. Walking is difficult. Laying down is difficult. Pole-vaulting is damn near impossible.
We have been googling a bit this morning to see what connections there are to myeloma and there are too many to make us feel better about the situation. So we stopped doing that.
Another excuse to have a relaxing day. I am getting more and more frustrated about not being able to move as I want. I can’t go into the studio, I can’t go to the beach, I can’t get jobs done around the house. I have never been so enthusiastic to get things on the move. The only thing that is letting me down is my body. I feel like my brain is hyper-active but has to drag a reluctant passenger around.
The codeine has just kicked in. Night.
