As a result of studying for the bar I have:
- Had a severe stress rash
- Had to be treated for a UTI & Bladder infection
- Had multiple nervous breakdowns (mild)
- Been treated at the Chiropractor for severe back pain
And now the latest development of the bar saga is a sudden onset of severe Thoracic outlet syndrome that has rendered me unable to type or write without pain (essential functions to take the bar) and sends shooting pain down my back and neck. The two groups of people most likely to develop TOS are those suffering from neck injuries due to traffic accidents and those who use computers in non-ergonomic postures for extended periods of time. I now have a Dr.’s note so that I can wear my newly acquired wrist braces into the exam.
