So I went to a Neurologist this past week because of my thighs going numb after walking or standing a longer periods of time. I have also been having horrible pain in my arms as well as numbness in my hands and fingers. I have had this for years in my hands, since the 80's and was diagnosed with Carpel Tunnel in my right arm. I had a steroid shot back then and never did anymore about it. Well now it is interfering with my crocheting and I can't let that happen.
So now he has done all the testing and I have severe Carpel Tunnel in both arms as well as a bad case of Restless leg syndrome. He has put me on Mirapex for the legs and I have been on it all week and it seems to be working well with no side affects. As for the arms, I go back on the 29th for a shot in each wrist and if that does not help then we will do surgery on both arms at the same time.
Sigh... that is my news for the day. Not so bad, it could be worse. I am blessed and happy and that is all that matters.
Hope you all have a beautiful day! *HUGS*
