Have you ever had one of these. I have had numbness and tingling on both 4th and 5th fingers for the past month or so. I went to the Dr. and a neck x-ray showed that the disks in my neck had degenerated....yuck! I have been really worried about aging lately as I am 56 and would like to back pack in my retirement(actually DH's plan and I want to tag along) So I had an EMG today. First they send jolts of electricity thru your nerves and then they follow up with amplified pins. I think the results were good-not a neck problem but carple tunnel and ulnar problems. I will be wearing wrist splints and will see and ocupational therapist. So to celebrate, I trimmed my canadian hemlock hedge- today is dump day. I explained to DH-we have to do this as the hedge is becoming tree like.
I realize the time has come to hire someone to do this. I am just so sick of telling someone what to do. I love doing yard work. It is just the numb fingers that I don't like!
