If you’re of a certain age, then you’ve probably experienced a few aches and pains. Usually, they’re just part and parcel of getting older; on occasion, though, seemingly ordinary twinges could signify something more serious. That was the experience of Twitter user gwheezie, who told her alarming story on the social media site in December 2018.
A professional nurse, gwheezie had started to feel some pain in various areas of her upper body – from her shoulders to her arms. Perhaps using her best judgment, she originally put the discomfort down to nothing more than a bad case of muscle strain, and so she continued on with her life as normal.
