Things that are difficult with TOS
Carrying a bag or purse-in fact, I do not ever sling any bag or purse on my shoulders anymore.
Backing up out of parking spots-wrenching neck around.
Pulling open doors-I use my foot alot to help get doors open.
Clothes shopping-pushing clothes on racks at shoulder level fatigues my arms super fast.
Planning-the unpredictability of symptom flareup.
Chopping, cutting, stirring when cooking.
Figuring out a good, ergonomic way to sit, (to avoid slouching) or what to sit on, that does not aggravate symptoms.
Traveling, going through xray scanner with arms up, and pulling a suitcase.
Waking the dog
Turning radio station in the car-arm extension-zappers.
Looking down to read...book, computer screen.
Wearing anything on my neck-scarves, necklaces, heavy clothing.
Pulling house windows up or down.
Scooping ice cream.
Fixing the back of my hair.
Pulling open doors.
*I'm sure my fellow TOSers can relate.
Gentle hugs to all of you for your courage in living with TOS.
