Right now, touch your right thumb to your pinkie finger.
I can’t do that.
I’m unable to grasp anything with my dominant hand that is heavier than a pound. I can’t brush my teeth without help from my left hand, and am unable to turn the ignition of my car without using my other hand.
I’m a little freaked out. When I am introduced to people, I have to shake hands with my lefty which is very awkward. I then feel obligated to explain why, which instigates a conversation that goes nowhere about what could possibly be wrong with it.
According to the docs at our local clinic? Nothing is wrong with it. I’ve had X-Rays, had my arm from the elbow down in a temporary cast, and have taken steroids to reduce the swelling — it still isn’t better.
I’m not sure what to do from here.
