I went through my comments in moderation because WP has been moderating everything again. I need to fix that – but meanwhile, I want to thank everyone for your well wishes. I truly appreciate it.
While going through the comments, I almost approved all the ones for “Lunesta” – I’m in the middle of reading Harry Potter, and I thought it was someone’s name at first. Until I realized I had about 250 comments from her. Then I remembered it is a drug.
I was zapped, poked and prodded yesterday. Literally. I had an Electromyography (EMG) and Nerve Conduction Study. Needles in my arm to record the muscle activity. Electrical pulse being applied to the skin forcing my hand and fingers to twitch. It was like a torture scene from a movie. (Ok, it wasn’t that bad – but that was what it reminded me of.)
The result is that I do have carpal tunnel syndrome. The doctor informed me that I have mild to moderate nerve damage, and he is writing up a report to send to my doctor. Funny thing is, my wrist doesn’t hurt anymore since the shot last Friday. Sure, my fingers get tingly still after awhile, but it still seems to be linked a lot more to my shoulder, which the neurologist said is a joint issue. I start physical therapy next week for that, so hopefully it will help.
Lunesta. Not the same as Luna. But now I feel Harry Potter calling for me. 200 pages left to go…
