Just When I Thought Things Were Settling Down
Tuesday, April 24, 2018
Well, since the end of March, I've been experiencing tingling, numbness, and pain in my right hand. Several times I woke up in the middle of the night with my hand totally dead. My physical therapist strongly suggested that I talk to my surgeon about it, and I have. I saw him yesterday. He's ordered a CAT scan and a Nerve Conduction Velocity test. That's as much fun as it sounds. Not. I'll have the nerve test on Thursday. Have to wait for pre-approval for the scan. Got a new soft collar. Sometimes it helps when I wear it. Sometimes nothing helps. Because of the tingling/numbness, my fine motor skills in my right hand have worsened. I dropped one of my favorite earrings this morning in my bedroom. I looked for it. DH looked for it. I looked again. No joy. So sad. DH gave me those earrings. Heavy sigh. Not a good couple of days. Thank you for reading.
