After a 25-year absence, my carpal tunnel syndrome has returned with a vengeance – and this time in both arms.
So I’m cutting way back on my tweeting, facebooking and blogging.
I can just about get through a normal day’s work at the keyboard without hitting my pain tolerance limit, and that means limiting my extracurricular keyboarding and even my detail-intensive model railroading.
I’m also in a holding pattern for a couple of weeks while some blood tests and an EEG are analyzed after a bit of an episode several weeks ago in which my left arm/hand and left foot/calf started to swell, turn blue, experience intense pain, and then just as suddenly returned to normal a few minutes later. I was a bit disoriented – not thinking at my best – and instead of going to a doctor, napped it off.
I’m hoping it was a one-time thing, and nothing serious.
And that I can get back to my social nit-witting soon.
