Ang, great news about your hands & wrists! It's nice to see noticeable results in such a short period of time, huh?

Have you guys seen this video that is going around on FB? It is similar to some of the feel good hs sports stories that we have heard about over the past couple of years, but there is a twist at the end. I love hearing about people being kind to each other :)

I posted that on FB last night (got it from my cousin who's a sports coach for her daughters' teams). It made me cry.

AS, Sorry to hear about your grandmother, and as red said, going in your sleep at a ripe old age is really the best anyone could hope for.

My gramma passed away early Monday morning.... it was in her sleep. Funeral is saturday. Spent yesterday talking with the funeral director, tomorrow i pick my parents up from the airport- they've been in germany visiting my brother & family. Friday we have 5 flights to meet... not sure who's gonna have to call a real cab. bro is coming in friday afternoon and leaving saturday evening.
i'm tired now, and bet i'll be up at 2 again.
You have talked a lot about her- keep sharing with us. Funerals and wakes are good times to gather family stories and lore- tell us the tales. I'm sorry she is gone, but glad it was peaceful. Did her brother make it to see her?

Hey, you two. Can you call a truce for a couple days to give AS a calm place to talk about her grandmother, please?

I feel for you, AS, and for your crapstorm of a Friday at the airport! Maybe a friend can help out!

Ang, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better! It must be a huge relief for you that the pain can be managed so easily right now.

Yeah, thanks for the nice comments about my improved hands! And thanks to, was it AS and Pellen?-- to push me to see the doctor sooner rather than later?

What? You mean like respecting someone's religious beliefs and offering solace even if that is not my faith, or even if I feel that the very act of having faith presents a question about my ability to think?

Sure, I am good with that. Now get the godless heathen to agree.

And yes, I promise, my last post on this till next Monday

I will say a prayer AS!

Glad I was wrong. You didn't sound like you had classic Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but that just proves the value of going to a real doctor, not just someone who plays one on line.

So on Wednesday, I went to the doctor for a diagnosis re my weak and painful fingers and hands and wrists. He said it was carpal tunnel likely caused by.packing up moving boxes, combined with how I bend my wrists when I sleep.
After five nights of wearing the wrist braces while sleeping, the improvement is AMAZING. I can't believe it. Not only is the pain significantly reduced but I have strength back. Last week I couldn't lift my lightweight typing stand to put it on my shelf. I couldn't carry four reams of paper.
I couldn't take the cap off a tube of Chapstick with my left hand.
Now I can. I called his nurse yesterday to give her the news and was very happy for me and said he'd be very pleased to hear that the progress had been so swift.
Yay"
Just curious, ho do you bend your wrists when you sleep such that it would be harmful?
