…I went for a nerve conduction test. Which basically means getting wired up to a machine and being shocked. Repeatedly.
Why? Because I have no feeling in part of my hand and 2 fingers. It has been like that for months, but I have had a hard time convincing doctors to take this seriously.
I have a feeling that time is now over.
The torture* revealed “near absence of left ulnar sensory action potentials” – which translated means (I think) pretty much what I have been saying for months. I can’t feel a damn thing in 2 fingers. Now I have to go for MRI to find out why I have “ulnar nerve palsy”. Good news is there’s nothing wrong with my motor strength. I just drop things cos I can’t feel them – and forget about typing with my little finger…
*Ok, so it was pretty mild, if kinda creepy.
