So... my back has been slowly getting worse for the past couple of weeks, so it's about
time for another ESI. No big deal- I'll give my PM a call when the office
opens in a half hour.
Oh, yeah... my dad is coming for a visit tomorrow, so it's time to straighten up the house and run to the grocery store. Smooth sailing.
And the birthday of one of my best friends is tomorrow, so I'll be taking her out to lunch tomorrow (woohoo! Sushi!).
All good. Can't forget that my in-laws will be here next weekend... ok... scrub the house... still going along...
Oh, wait! What's this? My pinkie and part of my ring finger on my right hand have been getting numb off and on (but daily) for the past month, and my hand and elbow have hurt from time to time... I really don't have time to run to the doctor for a pinched ulnar nerve only to be told either a) just let it work itself out; or b) "let's send you to a surgeon for a consult."
Have any of you had to deal with a pinched ulnar nerve (that's your funny bone nerve)? It's not that it usually hurts (although it does once in a while). Any ideas on how to keep the nerve from pinching?
PS- Yeah... goofy mood this morning... not enough sleep... must get more sleep...
