Despite years of experience in helping friends, family members, and pets with various medical issues, I’m afraid I wasn’t so smart with my own health. Thinking I had a strained muscle, I used a heavy-duty sports vibrator on my calf constantly for a week. Turns out it was a massive DVT… from six inches above the knee to mid-calf, involving three arteries. Eight days in-patient, as a result, with no medical insurance. Geez, I’m a TARD!
