I'm a little worried, I have to admit. A few years ago I started having numbness and tingling in my hands. I went thru all the neurological tests and didn't have carpal tunnel or any other neurological issue. They gave me guards to wear on my wrists and it helped. The problem went away.
It's back. Only worse. I've been seeing a chiropractor and last week I went for an acupuncture treatment. When I researched online the possible causes of this, MS was one of them. I really don't think that's what it is. I think it's nerve related from a pain in my neck between my neck and shoulder blade. But I'm worried because it's not getting better.
And one other dilemma. I have severe mucus in my throat. No traditional doc or alternative healer has been able to help me resolve this issue. It affects my singing. Big time. I am so so frustrated.
I researched this as well and found something online I've ordered. We'll see.In the meantime, I'm doing sinus rinses, saline nasal sprays, gargling with warm salt water and watching what I eat, because certain foods definitely make it worse.
Oy. I promise, I'm not letting these things get me down. I just wanted to vent a little.
Anyone else feel like venting?d It's tell the truth Tuesday, after all.
P.S. - an update - Last night I had my first night without numbness and tingling. Seems the acupuncture treatment really made a difference. Yippee!!
