My mother walked around for 2 days holding her arm and groaning loudly in pain with every step. We decided to take her to the er and she wouldn't let me change her top. She had spilled food on it and I wanted her to be clean but she would yell in pain if I tried to lift her arm so we just took her that way. As soon as we got there and they put her in a bed there was no more groaning or complaining of pain. When asked if she could raise her arms she raised them both high above her head with no complaints. They did x-rays and found nothing but a little arthritis. We thought maybe she had fell and hurt herself. My son wheeled her back to the car and the very minute he tried to get her in the car she was yelling in pain again. She is still doing it. I sleep in a recliner because of my scoliosis and she was in her chair close to me last night. The room was dark cause we were going to sleep. She was very quiet. As soon as I remembered I needed to set my alarm on my phone and turned my phone on and the light lit up my face she yelled "Oh it hurts so bad". When my phone was back off again she stopped doing it. I feel like I want to treat her like a child throwing a tantrum and just ignore it. One night at 4:30 in the morning I was still awake because of this so I turned on the light and got her up and got her in bed so I could get some sleep. Am I treating her unfairly by ignoring this or should I run up a bill each time in the er...I'm afraid if something does happen I won't believe her and she will actually be ill.
