Still having physio on my blasted neck. Physio last week said he thinks I have OA at C2 area which is either compressing the disc between that and the next vertebrae or has made the disc prolapse. Either way the disc is pressing on the nerve, hence all the symptoms I'm having. Some days I can't hold a pen even so life is a challenge! I regularly have electric shocks and pins & needles down my arm, into my hand and into my fingers. All the pads on my fingers are numb and I'm now dropping things at times or am unable to grip with this hand. MRI is 29th May but I'll be ringing regularly to see if they have any cancellations before this as my physio says the MRI is very urgent.
Yesterday I had my right big ingrown toenail sorted out. The podiatrist felt it was best to take both sides of the nail off rather than the whole nail. I went with her recommendation.
The local anaesthetic injections were dreadful as they went into nerves on each side of the toe. :shock: I didn't watch them do this, but instead stared at a very boring ceiling. I came out of the clinic hobbling, on both crutches with sandals on. I spent all of yesterday with my feet up, with bed socks on as I couldn't get anything else on over the huge bandage. Today the bandage was removed and a dressing put on. The podiatrist I saw today was happy with things. I came out of clinic today - still hobbling - and clutching a box of dressings. There are 50 dressings in this box so it looks like I'll be dressing this for quite a while. :!: I go back to clinic in 2 weeks to have this checked. Once the left big toenail is healed I have to go back and have the right big toenail undergo exactly the same treatment. Gulp!
Turn a negative into a positive!
