Stay clear of the tunnel

Saw my regular doctor on Tuesday morning. The verdict is now that I do not have carpal tunnel syndrome (yay!) but, instead, have tendonitis. No numbness or tingling in the fingers was the main clue.

So that bodes well, I think, for this being a more temporary aberration. I'm taking steroids to reduce the inflammation. (erickavan is disappointed that the doses are so low that I'm not getting the side-effects she sometimes does.) They appear to be working well and I am wearing my braces as much as I can stand.

I hope this passes quickly. It's frustrating to not write as much hear as I sometimes do and to no comment on as many of your entries as I normally do. I feel a little disconnected.
