sooooooooo, i had my MRI done and apparently my C5-C6 discs in my fuckin neck/spine have bulging and herniated discs, alongside my shitty little bone spur.
of course my orthopedist is out all of this week, so i can’t find out what i need to do for this shit until next monday… so again, i sit here for another damn week in annoyingly, tingly bullshitland. this straight almost month of tingly fingers/hand and forearm is enough to drive one to drink (meanwhile, i’ve been on prednisone, so i haven’t had any drinks… but i did pop an edible last night, which helped).
the prednisone helped my shoulder a bit but didn’t do jackshit for my arm/hand or fingers, so i don’t know if that’s related to the shit with the bone spur or if it’s just a pinched median nerve on top of this bullshit… he had mentioned a surgery, which i think is a laminectomy (which i am DREADING).
: exhale :
so yeah, the first half of january is sucking ass so far. at least i have a lot of good shit lined up for the second half.
