I’m still in pain from the tremor. Not as bad? Let me explain…
Last week on Friday, I saw a new doctor where I explained about my increased tremor. She understood what I was saying and told me that I’d be seeing some other doctors to get a better idea of what needs to be helped and/or fixed. Fixed? Well, that would be GREAT, but I believe that all this is happening because of one (or more) side-effects of the seizure medications I take. A major (but not common) side-effect is a, or increased, tremor. So…
Let me show you what this FIRST doctor gave me to constantly wear. Drum roll, please….
Okay, this was one of the first fittings I was trying to redo. Little tight in this picture, but I got it fixed. Basically I was ordered:
“Wear this now and ALL DAY & EVERYDAY. … just not while you take a shower.”
“So, how long am I going to wear this? Forever and Ever?“
“Yes. Forever and Ever.”
Holy Crap! This is not fun when you have a permanent tremor on the right-side of your body and this is trying to hold it still. The wrist is held like a board, but my elbow & fingers are still shaking. Drinking coffee while I type this doesn’t help either. We’ll just see how long THIS lasts….
Okay, lets go ahead with this Orthopedic doctor that I saw yesterday. Basically it was…
“Does this hurt when I do this?”
“Well, the first time you moved it & squeezed it, it hurt. The second and third times, it didn’t hurt.”
Kept trying to make it hurt, but he was unsuccessful. Told me there wasn’t any way he could help me. (For some reason or another)
