Probably I was overworked before the Chinese New Year, ........ the preparations of the festival, the numerous deliveries of CNY goodies to my elders and business associates, clearing my payments and chasing for payments, the end-of-the-lunar-year meals and my father-in-law falling again the day before CNY eve...... my right shoulder was aching and my right hand was turning weak.
I ignored it and on Saturday morning, I woke up with an extremely painful right shoulder and a very weak right hand. I didn't want to go to the hospital as it is considered inauspicious to be there during Chinese New Year. The Chinese physician whom I use to consult is also in festive mood, his clinic would only open on the 5th day of CNY (11th Feb).
I applied a herbal ointment on the hurting part. On Sunday morning, the right side of my body was too painful to move. I was worried it might be a stroke but yet I endured the pain and waited for my Chinese physician to come back.
First thing on Monday morning I went to see the Chinese Physician. After a thorough investigation, he found that it was only a bad sprain and overworked muscle. Phew! I was given a massage and put on a heat therapy.
The massage was a really painful one. I'm bruised and still in pain. Fortunately I'm able to move my right hand now. I hope to get better in the next few days and visit all my blogger friends. Thanks for your visits and comments.
