I have a pinched nerve in my neck and my thumb and two fingers are frozen numb. I am much better today, but this has been a week of utter excruciating pain. It started late Saturday and by late Sunday afternoon I could not stand it anymore so I went to the local clinic and they prescribed an anti inflammatory. It may have been doing it's job, but the pain was still there. Wednesday morning I went to see my doctor and she knew right away that it was a pinched nerve. Prescribed a muscle relaxant and something for the nerve. I went for x-rays, but don't know the results yet. She also told me I should go for physio therapy. I had my first session of physio yesterday and whatever they did has helped a lot.
I'm right handed, so naturally that would be the one effected. I tried several times during this week to use the computer, but as soon as I touched the mouse I screamed in pain. Needless to say there is no stitching.
Since I felt better today I thought I would give it a try, but right now my fingers are saying that's enough.
Hope to be back soon.
