it was the situation which prompted my diagnosis.
started in my hand; then in my waist; then in my foot. each area spread until it joined up, but stopped short at my chest. for this i was very happy! i think i might have lost it had i felt it creep up my neck to my face.
the point to note, is that this all happened only on my right hand side. then it started in a similar order on my left hand side.
but luckily, after a period of about 5 or 6 weeks from the very beginning of this relapse, it began to subside all by itself and my left side only went as far as my hand.
the only lingering remnant of it almost two years later, is my right hand is fuzzy; kinda like pruned skin from being in the swimming pool for too long.
typing, writing, putting on gloves etc were tricky. if my eyes were closed, i wouldn’t have been able to tell you what my fingers were doing. but tried to adapt and overcome.
another aspect of all this, was walking would result in a sense that tight bandages had been applied around my knees. similarly if i wiggled my fingers, it would feel like my knuckles were being inflated from the inside out. of course no such thing was happening and although it felt that mobility was being impaired, my range of motion was never inhibited.
i chose to use ‘mind over matter’;
i didn’t mind it, so it didn’t matter!
good luck. it will improve. it will not last forever!
