needles, electrodes, etc...

so my hands have been hurting for years.  one doc thought it was arthritis in my thumbs and gave me splints that i never wore.  my current doc thinks it's fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel.  she sent me for tests to see if it was indeed carpal tunnel.

yesterday was the EMG test.  an hour and a half of having electrical surges sent into my arms and hands, making my hands twitch like a puppet.  then it was electrode needles in my hands, arms and neck.  indeed there is carpal tunnel.  so today was the shot into my wrist.

it hurt.  and now my hand is numb.  going to ice it.  so far it's not feeling better.

there ya have it!
