So it's finally gotten to the point where I can't ignore the pain and numbness in my hands and wrists anymore. I went to the doctor today and am now on anti-inflamatories and have been told to wear braces on both wrists at all times. The pain is much better since I took the pill but it makes me sleepy and now I'm really scared of what the next step will be once I go to the hand specialist.
So I'm laying off the internet and knitting for a while. I've been sewing in ends instead . . . maybe I'll get that part of my projects finished now that I can't really do anything fun.
A direct quote from my doctor: "It's kind of like when someone says, 'every time I put my hand in the fire it burns' . . . "
