So today I have extreme joint pain in my left elbow. I went to flush the toilet with my left hand and literally yelped in pain. I couldn't help but laugh at the metaphor, though; I have always had trouble letting things go.
I looked up my new symptom set on the internets, and found fibromyalgia, but I don't have any of the other symptoms for that. So for right now I'm just going to live under the assumption that it's just atrophy. So I'm going for a walk. It's gorgeous outside. You'll recognize me as the woman walking slowly, eyes closed, singing loudly, and probably flailing wildly to work the muscles.
