Few yeas ago I went to the doctor with tingling and numbness in fingers and hands.... both hands but moreso right since I am right handed. "Oh it's carpel tunnel, no need to worry, patted me on head, sent me on my way with a splint to wear at night. (No relief.)
Time progressed and now I have not only worsening tingling and numbness in hands and fingers but my arms and I am having these horrible, horrible headaches which make my eyes feel like they are going to bust out of my head, my eyes get glassy and red like I'm in a zombie movie. Light and sound are excruciating. It's gotten to were I can only hold a fork, spoon, pen, etc. for maybe 60 seconds before hand goes numb and I have to wait for sensation to return to finish eating or writing.
I am becoming confused, forgetful, (stand in kitchen and wonder why I am there), I'm tired all the time even after a 12 hour sleep. These are daily occurances and I am miserable!
