My doctor is in internal medicine, but says she is a generalist. Although I like her better than any of the many other doctors I have had since being diagnosed with FMS, I am having trouble getting her to refer me to specialists. I have had a myriad of tests recently, among which was an EMG (nerve conduction test) to see why my feet ache, are numb, and get electical shocks. The test showed that I have carpal tunnel in both my wrists.
Oh, goodie! Now I get to wear wrist splints.
I walk with a cane now because I lost my balance, fell, and sprained the tendons/muscles on the outside of my left leg above my ankle. Have you ever tried to walk with a cane--wearing wrist splints? Ouch!
I am such a mess--I have to laugh to keep from crying! Anyway, if I went to a neurologist, would he/she know what I was talking about if I mentioned I would like to try light therapy? How new is it? Thanks, and lets just try to hang-in-there.
