Saved by a bell
This is not about the Sitcom but about the changes happening to my right hand.
This started in December when I noticed I couldn't write properly with my right hand and thought it have been an onset of RSI or Carpal. No unbearable pain was involved but fingers and 3 toes later exhibited pain when stretched.
I visited the doctor a few days later, he ruled out mini-stroke and he felt there was some sensation on my right. I wasn't completely pleased with his examination but left anyway. He told me to see how it goes in two weeks.
I later developed difficulty with any task involving my right hand. The hand also appeared to have developed it's own mind. Simple task like this is currently a luxury but hopefully, this will change.I returned to the doctor to be told I would be referred to MRI. The appointment was to be one month away, too long for my current feeling. Referral to physio led to being sent to Accident & Emergency. Admission later followed with various scans and tests and released the next day for further assessments later..
Initial results of the scan indicated lesion in the left brain. A fuller CT scan followed the next day, full results expected later this week. MRI scan to be done next week while I've been put on steriods.
What have I learned from this:
- Our lives can change anytime, I typed this blog using my left hand.
- Report of the doctor is not final but just an indication.
- There's life at the end of the turnel.
- I'm learning to use my left hand.
- Learnt that the left brain controls our right side.
Lots more to come, in the meantime send your possible thoughts!
