The Needless Numbness

After the exertion test, I began having problems with feeling like pins and needles were prickling my skin on my extremities. Today, however, I woke up and in my hands, it has gotten worse. The tips of most of my fingers are almost completely numb. They feel like I’ve stuffed cotton balls in them or something. Not an enjoyable feeling. I have a newly scheduled appointment with a family practitioner this morning. She’s not my normal family doctor at the clinic. Apparently, my old doctor at the clinic has graduated. She’s probably gone on to private practice, and I can’t really follow her. (It is highly unlikely that she would still accept Medicaid in a private setting.)

Tomorrow, I have another doctor appointment. I have to go for my yearly ophthalmologist appointment. I have a feeling that when it gets to time to check my vision (and see if I need new glasses), I will need a new prescription. I hate when I have to get new glasses.

Okay, so here goes my daily plugging of the message board. Please go check out Urban Sunrise. It’s getting more and more active.
