Last night, I sat down and grabbed the paper...then dropped it in shock. There was this sudden and very sharp pain piercing my left hand, and I looked at it thinking I might have banged it on something. I couldn't see anything wrong with it, and still can't, but when I woke up this morning the pain was even worse and by now, it's excruciating. It's not just my hand and wrist anymore, it shoots out to the shoulder, too. I wonder what it can be. Maybe I've trapped a nerve or something? It's not red, swollen or hot(ter) to the touch so I doubt it's an infection...and RSI? Well, it's possible I suppose...but I can't see myself as an RSI-victim!
If it's not better by tomorrow, I think I'll go see my GP about it.

Anyway, as a right-handed person, I never realised how much I actually do use and need my left. Such simple everyday occurances as getting dressed or carrying a foodtray to the table in the office canteen, all of a sudden have become major obstacles.

Please be really careful! I had a bout of RSI two years ago, and it took months of retraining all my computer, sitting and walking habits (Mensendieck)! I work out twice a week now, and it's still a weak spot. Never ignore that stuff!

Cheers!
Thanks for your concern, and advice!

I know I may come over a bit flippant at times, but I do assure you that if there's one thing I'm careful of, it's my health. And this -what I have now- may not be RSI (instead, it's your bog standard tendonitis), but it may still be worth watching it. So I will heed my GP and not overdo it for the time being...

At least, it's given me an excuse not to try those bloody handstands again in yoga class!;-)

Re: Cheers!
Eh...waarom schrijven wij elkaar in het Engels, vraag ik me opeens af? Hoezo absurd...
Ik ben blij dat het niks ernstigs is. Stel je voor, geen internet...hoewel er natuurlijk voice-reposnse software is.
Ga je toevallig soms ook naar de Harvest over twee weken?
