Hey Smurfy! Its great hearing from you :)! I also have the purple strea and the doc actually said it was some of the worst he has seen! My Rhuemy said to get Vitamin D capsules and break them open, rub on the stretch marks. That it should help minumize them. I don't know bout yours but mine are everywhere and don't even know if the stores would cary enough Vitamin D for one rub down. So I don't really know if that helps. I am just thankful that stretch marks don't form on faces!!! haha He even mentioned something about once everything gets undercontrol going to a plastics person. I laughed at that idea...I don't have that kind of money and there is no guaruntee that it will work that great.
For the Carpal tunnel, have you gotten a brace to sleep in? I started sleeping in mine and it helped greatly and then when I started wearing it during the day I had minumal pain. I really hope your tumor has shrunk, and im sry bout the fibro. let us know what you find out on the 13th!!!

*clicks edit* oh yes, I do have a brace. Luckily I never had to purchase one though. I was in a car accident last year, and sprained the wrist bad. So they put my hand in a brace then, so I just took that out again. I use it when I sleep and when I type, its the most repitive things I do besides sneezing and having running eyes (allergies lol). Brace goes about 2 or 3 inches above my wrist and goes to my knuckles on fingers.
