Well, I'm not sure what I've done to myself this time...
It started about a month ago... my left thumb started to go numb and I shrugged it off thinking it was no big deal. Unfortunately, it has remained numb and tingly- like when your hands go to sleep for instance.
My mom saw something in her paper about peripheral neuropathy and said she did not know what it was, but I should research it.. okay mom... I went ahead and looked just to get her off my back... glad I looked. It is a pinched nerve and I have every symptom. So, I called my Ortho. I can't get in until Feb. 4th- 2 more weeks.
The issue- the numbness is affecting my whole hand and forearm at times now... and I'm having dizzy spells as well. Dh is concerned as am I since my BP has elevated through all of this even taking my meds. *lovely*
I went to the Chiro yesterday and it seemed a little bit better until Dh massaged my neck last night to try and alleviate the knot that she found during my adjustment. Now, I can barely move my neck..
So, no workouts for me...<------- NOT GOOD since I'm a gym rat. I want to pull weights, but I can't due to the numbness issue and possible pinched nerve... not sure I can run due to my back and neck, soooooo....I'm stuck for right now... I'm peeved...big time.. how am I supposed to be a decent trainer if I can't stay healthy?!?!?
