Once more the medical community has reinforced my belief that they are little better then a witch doctor. That instead of the tribal mask and loin cloth of small bones they use a stethoscope and a prescription pad but the results are the same. Well actually I think a witchdoctor may have better track record as if they make a mistake the patient doesn’t die from their negligence, they die of whatever is ailing them but it isn’t the fix that kills.
Ok what I am on about…
Girl started out Saturday with a small twitch in her shoulder. It came outta nowhere and grew steadily worse as the day ground on. On Sunday she awoke with a full on spasm. Her right shoulder was in a 10 to 12 second cycled twitch.
It was no small “blip” either.
No small “Oh my goodness I think I may have inadvertently moved my shoulder but cannot tell.”
It was a full on cat lady, shopping cart, talking to yourself and shouting “DUMDUMDIDDY!!!” kind of spasm.
My poor girl.
Last night gave her a muscle relaxer and watched her still spasm as she slept.
Took her off to the doctor this morning.
To which they said “Well, she is having a muscle spasm”
Really? 12 years of school and you came up with that all by yourself?
So they tried a back adjustment
Shockingly this did nothing!
So they tried this thingy treatment and received the same result.
So what does the Doctor do from there?
Ok let’s segue to analogy world real quick.
***cool rippling special effect***
You take your car to the mechanic saying
“It is making a noise in the engine and doesn’t start”
So the mechanic tries one thing and that doesn’t fix it.
Then the mechanic tries something else and that doesn’t work
So what would be the mechanic’s next step?
Remember this is a qualified mechanic so he has all sorts’ car mechanical knowledge and stuff.
If you answered:
“The mechanic would then tell you to take the car home and stick it in the garage and not drive it for 2 days to see if that fixes the issue, right?”
Then you too can be a productive member of the medical community! Just send in your 12 box tops and a paragraph essay detailing why you want to be a doctoring.
That is what the doctor said and that is what the doctor did.
Told Girl to go home and to rest and relax for 2 days.
Even if it was not my daughter I would think it odd that a perfectly good 15 year old started having deep muscle spasms that made her look like a mad scientist with a twitch.
Could be Muscular dystrophy
Could be nothing.
Whoops forgot to shut off the analogy channel
