I may have turned the corner

This neck/arm/hand thing has been feeling better for the past day or so.  The pain is down to a dull ache most of the time - much better than the roaring pain I had been feeling for the past three weeks. 

I actually sat and stitched for a bit last night.  It was really weird holding a needle with a numb thumb, but I managed a couple of rows of stitches and it felt like a huge accomplishment.  Heck, just sitting here and typing this seems huge, too!

Maybe I'll be back to my normal and idiotic post-writing self soon.

  3. Boy, that nerve must really have been pinched, Lee!! I sure hope you'll get the feeling back in your thumb very soon--it's amazing how small accomplishments can seem so huge after you've been doing without for so long! Hang in there and hope you'll be back to normal very soon :)

  5. A little bit of advice that might just help. I'm always reluctant to suggest anything but your trapped nerve sounds similar to a problem I had a number of years ago. The advice I was given was to stitch with my head raised level rather than looking down and also try to extend your neck as much as you can to release the nerve. Hope it keeps improving.

  16. Great to read that you are slowly better off. Must be a great relief to be able to stitch and write again. Hopefully this won't happen again in the new year. Happy 2012!
