Oh wow... I am NOT nuts. My arm has calmed down a bit now. I started wearing a wrist splint.
I am 48 and know that I am too "young" to be feeling this way. The smells things just about makes me crazy.
You are NOT nuts. During my ongoing battle with LD, I have worn carpal tunnel braces. I am only 44, I've been going through this since I was 35. The thing that gets me is that I was so darned healthy and on the go at age 35 that I still can't reconcile my illness with my "prior" life..... when I finally "come to" I expect to think I'm "35" - it's like time has stood still for me, I want MY LIFE back so bad! I also have the hyper-sensitve sense of smell, hearing, etc.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Meade
