Amongst all the other drama I have new symptoms. The docs are of the "wait and see" mind, so I wondered if any of you have ideas or suggestions. You are often more on the ball than the docs. You all seem to understand that if I say it has changed then it is a fairly substantial change, not just a trivial item. First off, I woke up Thurs am and my right hand was numb. I don't understand it, but it has that pins and needles feeling, isn't responding when I type with-o real effort, and it hurts. It is different than what I went through when I blew the disc in my neck out. No amount of wiggling, massaging, heat, cold, etc... helps it at all. Cold makes it hurt a LOT worse. Today I am more able to type as I am adjusting to how to make my hand work. I have also swollen up over 70 pounds in under 6 weeks. The docs thought at first it was the bowel system backing up as a side effect, but I now have fancy super duper shots to negate that. It hasn't made a difference. I have never been this huge in my life. It is as if there is a third me in my skin. I really did NOT need this, or the medication issue from Wed night, this week. The doctor said that they 'crossed wires" about tapering down on one medication when they raised another and it combined with the migraine to cause the problem on Wed night. So, my Dr. Moms, any ideas/advice/suggestions? If one of you is sticking a pin into a Susie voodoo doll, take the pin out of the right hand please. Hugs to all!
