PaPang Posted September 5, 2009 Author Share Posted September 5, 2009 Muchas gracias Asgneto, Petoscal and nicky_82uk, I appreciate your comments. I had to get a pinched nerve at his moment and lost almost a week of time. In certain positions, it was really painful and the nerve even affected my left hand so I could not even type.This has only happened to me twice in my life before and it takes a long time to go away. I have kept up somewhat with the progress of the forum however and luckily I could click a mouse. With help from a chiropractor and meds (no cortisone shots through the back-I'm chicken) I began to slowly add to my mod by Thursday and today type. It is funny that for this type of ailment, the chiropractor prescribed exercise (even cardio). He said that it only gets worse if I just sit or lie in bed, that in order to get blood and nutrients that will relieve pressure on the nerve, one must exercise and even stop smoking (sorry, no can do). What he thought funny is that I pinched a nerve while only modding, not from exercise or lifting, so modders beware, you CAN get PAINFUL nerve ailments while modding! Ahh, definitely my age doesn't help so beware sunnyextremist and slipperyskip, you could be up next! It might have also been the pressure from the contest (boy, is it that bad?!), so ANYONE running to finish his project, COULD BE NEXT! So if you don't want to go through what I had: exercise and do cardio, eat regularly and well (no junk food-calcium and potassium promote muscular and nerve health), sleep well, don't drink alcohol (who mods and drinks?) and take breaks from your mod (right now? Are you crazy?). Oh and stop smoking (are you kidding?). Also thanks guys for "stepping up to the plate" on comments which makes this contest rather unique and fun (kudos to nicky for his effort-just have to send him to grammar school, hehe). Cheers and Saludos Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
