I have spent the last couple of hours writing emails and reports laying on my hotel bed and this has raised a medical question, hey why not?
You see my left arm has been supporting me on a pillow and typing and this seems to be a position that elicits a good deal of pain. Now obviously the ‘right’ thing to do is to change my position, but I will leave it to you to conclude from the typing and the inverted commas that I am not one for doing the ‘right’ thing. It was mentioned to me the other day that the pain could be from a trapped nerve and this seemed to make sense so I have been experimenting with moving my hand to stop the pain and this leads me to a question, do trapped nerves get hot?
Now I know that my blog is not an appropriate way to gain medical advice, but hey some people even question my use of google to decide matters of medical urgency so what next? The feeling is very hot as if there is an internal heat source, no swelling so it’s not bleeding and it seems, to my medical mind, that a compressed nerve released could well feel like that. Now I may discuss this with my consultant on Friday but that invites him to open the discussion on fusing the left wrist which is a conversation I don’t want to start until he has made a declaration on the right after all I can’t lose more mobility!
In other news, there has been much discussion on the subject of my soft flowing locks which I am told must have improved dramatically with my improved hair care regime*. Rather than ask anyone to take the time to read over old posts that I have written with my crippled hands I thought I would explain here, after all I don’t want to put anyone to any trouble.
I am right-handed so having selected an appropriately coloured bottle of mystical hair care I use the right hand to dispense the potion, as you can guess this means that I dispense into the left hand. Now some of you will remember that the left hand does not rotate so you can imagine what happens to the carefully dispensed hair nutrition, that’s right it slides off! I invariably hit upon a system to get some product into my left hand and from there onto my hair but I doubt more than 50% of the contents ever sees my head.
And so to the question of my hair condition, a subject that seems to worry the girls more than my wrists, yes I have fantastically soft and well conditioned hair, this hair is subjected to a 3 step routine that I don’t actually understand. The problem is that my old friend gravity ensures that the healthy lush hair is in fact on my leg were said products fall! As to the hair on my head, it continues to thin and depart at alarming levels but the last week it does seem to have slowed down a little which seems to support the doctors theory of shock loss, it could all be coming back!
I remain completely confused by not only the array of products but the different systems, processes and chemicals required to look after hair, you girls are like mad professors mixing you arganine **and L’ethcium**the number of chemicals in a female bathroom would put a terrorist to shame, if it ever makes sense I will be deeply concerned.
