Well, I got up early this morning and had a shower and put on nice clean drawers, because thats what you do when you have a doctors appointment , right ? So I'm right on time to get my test. My fingers are all numb this morning instead of just one like most days so I'm thinking this is a good time. My doctor fumbles around in the cabinet for a while and then goes to another room, I hear mumbling and then he comes back an tells me they are out of electrodes and they dont know when they will have some in. Sooooo no test today . I mean I wasted a good bath and clean pair of drawers and a whole set of numb fingers and,,,, no test....I'll make a bet with you that when the next test date comes up, my fingers will be fine . Is that a cloud I see hanging over my head ???? rolleyes

Not a good bet to take with you Sniper, cuz I know you'll win. At least you had a nice bath:)

I hate when that happens! A few years ago, I had a migraine that wouldn't go away and the doctor wanted to do an occipital nerve block, and yes its about as nasty as it sounds, a needle to the back of the head. So after he gets done shooting me up, he asks if I'm numb. Well actually no I'm not. So he goes running out. When he comes back in, he tells me that the medicine he just shot into me expired 6 months ago and they don't have anymore in the office. We can do this all over again next week. ARGH.

It seems the doctors offices need to have someone checking their supply cabinets a little more closely.

Well if they ever stick a needle in the back of my head like Zanne ,I will probably dirty my drawers right then and there. I would also think that if my doc didn't check to see if the med had expired his time dealing with me would have just expired too.

Ohhhhhh, I've had that done for carpal tunnel.  A good doc doing the test, you will think it's very cool.  A bad doc, you will want to punch his lights out.  I am busy at the moment and will try to elaborate more in a bit.  It really isn't a bad test with a good doc tho.

Sniper, I hope the doctor got his supplies in order and you got everything done and didn't have to waste another set of clean drawers, or maybe you just turned the last pair inside out. You know you can get another whole week out of them if you do that, right?

Well, I had the test today . Not painful but then I am pretty use to being shocked ,sense i worked with circuits that carry 500+ volts and had to cut them live. Guess we will see the results in a week or so. Fingers were pretty numb during the test but I think the trouble is in my shoulder and not my wrist .

I can't belive you guys wear drawers! You could get splinters in the worst places. Not to mention that the furniture looks weird without them.
