I guess this starts last summer. I started lifting more weights (including forearm workouts), landscaping as a part-time job (throwing mulch usually), and playing some more tennis. My wrist got pretty tight, and i went to see a doctor. They diagnosed it as tendinitis, and put me on therapy. PT was okay, and my arm certainly got stronger. I was feeling about 85% in my arm and then went off to a tennis camp for a week. As part of my therapy, I was told by doctor+therapist to have a constant amount of ibuprofen in my system to aid the therapy. Pain went away a little, and i was probably back around 95%. Pain every now and then, but nothing major. I ran cross country that fall (last fall) and kept doing therapy on my own and only taking ibuprofen when i was really really sore from a tough workout. Now it's mid-winter, and for around a month i have not been able to take ibuprofen. If i take an ibuprofen, a nosebleed is guarenteed. I took one today because I played badminton in gym class and was playing tennis tonight. It had been roughly two weeks since i last took any ibuprofen and figured i would be okay if i took just one. NOPE. I got the worst nosebleed i've ever had, and i was at the tennis club. It didn't bleed badly until i got into the bathroom thankfully! I did the right thing and put pressure on it, tilted slightly forward, but it didn't stop. After 3 minutes of pressure, i went to change cloths. Put a piece of paper towel up my nose, and it didn't really work. The blood must have just piled up a-la water balloon, because i pulled the towel out and ~5oz of blood FELL out of my nose. What is wrong with me? Do i have like a low platelet count, or is something worse? My mom and i agree that i should have bloodwork done. BTW, turns out i don't have tendinitis. After a bonescan and mri last week, there's a new diagnosis. My pinky pulls on my wrist tendon in a weird way, and bruises it. That's why it has been hurting all along. :-/ There's a pretty good chance that it's going to be operated on...which is what i'm hoping for.
