So generally, if there's a significant and rapid barometric shift, my bionic arm tends to ache. Much like when folks who have broken bones have weather related pain. See, when the air pressure changes, it causes our bodies to swell or contract ever so slightly. With breaks, the new "healed" bone contracts at a different rate than the surrounding bone, causing the "Storm's coming" feeling. For me, though, the bone of my left arm is swelling or contracting around six titanium screws, which don't swell or contract at all. So if the change is rapid enough, I get six points of shooting pain in my left arm. Generally it only lasts a few hours... a day at MOST.
Except that I've been having arm pain for about six days now. It's worse at night, but the thing is constantly tender, and today I noticed a little swelling near my wrist around the scar.
So I've got me a doctor's appointment. First one available was Wednesday. Wheee!
