Well, this stinks.
Three years into therapy I’d never had more than a tiny tingling in my toes. This would go away nearly as soon as it came, so I figured I was just lucky. I had told BB about this and he surmised that some people are physiologically disposed to neuropathy, while others are not. So when I had a little bit in my feet, I figured it would go away, and all would be well.
Well, I’ve got it pretty bad in my fingers today and it’s terrible.
I had noticed trouble in my right thumb after the surgery to remove the carcinoma on my right index finger. The doctor thought it was a dressing wrapped too tight that impinged a nerve. Even then, though, it felt a little numb but not painful.
Yesterday, I banged my thumb against a large binder on my desk. It hurt last night but even then, I assumed it was just sore from banging it.
Now, both thumbs actively hurt and I can’t use a remote control for fear of too much pain. Both index fingers are the same. The rest of the hands are okay for the moment, so I know it’s the one nerve in each hand that affects both the thumb and forefinger.
This is very disconcerting…it’s actually quite painful.
We’ll see how this goes.
