So, I have a strained muscle in my shoulder. I must have did it last Tuesday, when I was traveling, since it showed up around then. After it didn't go away by the time I got back to Ithaca, I called the nurse, who suggested 48 hours of ibuprofen and heat, and then to come in if it's not feeling better.
It wasn't feeling better. The doctor looked at it and did a lot of 'move this' and 'does this hurt?' tests. She also said I was sitting crooked -- because of my shoulder hurting, I was tilting my head, and she wasn't terribly happy with my posture. She explained what was wrong, but I managed to already forget the names of things -- basically, that a lot of muscles and tendons and ligaments run around and through the gap between my clavicle and scapula, and something up there is swollen. There are some exercises I'm supposed to do, and I'm supposed to call the physical therapist, which I did, but they weren't in the office when I got back to my apartment and called. I hope it was a 'stepped out for a late lunch' and not a 'gone till classes start'. It's an on-campus thing, so that's not a problem.
It's making things a pain in the neck to get work done, since the last thing I want to do is sit at a computer and type. I'll have to focus more on working in the morning until this heals up, since 8 hours lying down tends to make things feel better.
