intuition is getting the best of me and I am a big worrier. Not a good combo.
I have always been a headache sufferer. I got my first migraine when I was ten years old. They have gradually become worse throughout the years.
Three months ago I gave birth. I have been having more frequent headaches since delivery which I know can be caused by fluctuating hormones. I also am very fatigued but baby sleeps through the night and so do I ;) so it seems I shouldn't be as tired as I am. Three weeks ago I developed wrist pain. Nothing terrible...just couldn't bear a lot of weight on my wrists. Then, one night, I noticed I was having sensory loss in both hands. Totally freaked me out. I felt like it was a neurological problem...like my hands couldn't do what my brain was telling them too. It was difficult to turn pages in a book, etc. I have had the sensory loss everyday since. It is worse at certain times than others.
I went to the doctor last week and was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. He asked me if I had any other symptoms other than wrist pain and sensory loss and I said no. I am wondering now if this could be bigger than Carpal Tunnel due to the headaches, fatigue, etc. even though I have always had them(therefore, resulting in me not mentioning them.) Also, I only have wrist pain...no pain in the fingers which is more common in CTS.
A blood test was done and everything looked good, but if something terrible was going on in my body (ie:cancer,) would the blood test point any clues? As far as I know, all that was looked at was my iron levels, WBC, and thyroid.
I know I am being a nervous nelly, but I just can't shake the feeling and don't want to be brushed off by my doctor as being a hypochondriac or something (maybe I am?) lol
any insight would be terrific.
Thanks in advance!
