Not wanting to sound alarmist

with 7 comments

but I’ve woken up today (actually it was there last night but I just tried to ignore it) with swollen fingers (actually that has developed as the day has progressed), the inability to form a fist (not that I was planning on hitting anyone), tingling and general numbness through my thumbs, the spongy part of your palm and also the next finger along. It’s worse in the left hand, but present in both. I can now clench my hands but it’s really painful in that weird pain sort of way, you know, not the “ouch” jump back kind of pain, more the I can do it but it really hurts kind of pain.

On self diagnosing using the internet this morning, Chef came across some sort of disorder which basically had me in intensive care by the end of the week. And quite frankly, I could do with the rest.

I’m thinking tendernitis (sp?) or carpal tunnel, whatever it is, it’s kinda incapacitating, which is also nice as I can’t do anything for anyone. Mwahahahahahahahaha.
