Today I am in a quite a lot of pain, but not as bad as yesterday... Where is this coming from?

Well, on Sat. morning I did two boat dives on my new rebreather unit, in between dives I was very hot on the boat so I decided to jump from the side into the ocean like I always used to do. So I did a "cannonball" dive and once I hit the water I felt this incredible pressure in my back and going up to my head... but I was alright.

The rest of Sat. I was very busy getting everything ready for my husband birthday party (which was great btw) and I felt fine the whole time.

Yesterday morning I woke up with a very tight muscle on my back and shoulder blade... took some pills, took a very hot shower and called my chiropractor and left a message.

Hours went by and the pain did not get better, in fact it got worse, so I iced the area for about an hour, by that time my chiropractor got back to me, so I went to see him at around 7pm... Well, I was very tight, and because of my symptoms it looks like a have a dislocated rib.

Well, today I woke up even more sore all over because of the adjustment (but not as tight). So, I'm home, resting and trying to get better so I can finish my dives and get my certification.

Oh no I hate that you are feeling bad. Make Mark wait on you hand and foot. You know that 'in sickness and in health' thing. Aleve really does the trick for me when I have a pain like that. I hope you feel better soon. Don't get back to the diving too soon, let your body have a rest.
