I went to the hospital yesterday to get my arms and hands tested to see why I am experiencing numbness in the fingers. I had the carpal tunnel operated on my right hand back in 2002, and have been having the same symptoms recently which are only getting worse.
Anyhow, the outcome of it, is that I have to wear tensor splints on a night on both hands for the next eight weeks to see if that helps calm them down, as again it is the carpal tunnel in both hands again. However this time it's my left hand that is worse. I am not at a point where I need them operated on, thank goodness, but I am catching it early enough that hopefully I can nip it in the bud. I need to find one of those small stress balls that fit into the palm of your hand as that is also a good exercise for my hands.
This was the first time I had been to the new hospital in Brampton for any treatment and I must admit I was really pleased with it all. Can't say I was thrilled with how much it cost to park........$12, but I guess that's typical of large inner city hospitals.
Today I am heading to the dental surgeon to have my tooth out. Can't say I am looking forward to it, but at least I won't have toothache either when it's done.
Still stinking hot, I know I shouldn't complain, but there has to be a happy medium with this weather???
Will write about Appleby Horse Fair tomorrow, didn't have time today.
