Here are some things I want to be able to do and still cannot do
- write longhand, even for a short time, without pain
- write/draw with smooth motions instead of small jerky motions
- sleep through the night without pain in my arm waking me up
- drive without it hurting when I turn the wheel for a corner
- cut up a raw carrot
- peel potatoes
This week my arm has been bothering me a lot at night when I am trying to sleep. It's actually been worse, not better. I wonder if it is because I have been working more than I should, assuming that I want to sleep at night. And I DO want to sleep at night. It doesn't hurt like that when I am awake. Last night I had to get up because that was the only way to get it to stop hurting.
Here's a link for wrist physical therapy exercises with good directions and photos. Best ones I found, anyway.
Update: It IS bad for me to work. I was told to back off. And I am sleeping through the night now.
