I went to see my doctor today about all of my strange symptoms (hand tremor, visual auras, ringing in ears), and I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I don’t have a brain tumor. The bad news is that I do have carpal tunnel. I know this is strange to say, but I was actually a little relieved when he diagnosed me with carpal tunnel because it explains a lot. I no longer feel like a wimp for not being able to take the lids off things, and will not panic every time my hand starts to spasm. Best of all, I get to wear a cool, stylish wrist brace to bed at night.
