Health update

Since the gunblog muse is flighty again, you are gonna get the health whinge.

Losts less pain.  A week ago some neck muscle got super tight, but that worked it's way past.  PT is effective, with constant improvements, just very slow.  Getting old sucks.  This could be the new normal, is always in the back of my mind.  Goal for this... to be able to handle cast iron pans again

The current wierdness.  A when the neck muscles loosened (this may be unrelated) the tip of my index finger and especially the thumb went totally numb.  And that has been constant.  Usually something goes funny then that comes back and another spot goes funny.  This has been a week of numb.  It plays hell with my fine motor tasks on my non-dominant hand.

You are always surprised the things you do with that hand, noticing only when it is difficult?  Buttoning a shirt cuff, zipping up my pants and buttoning them, clipping your nails.  Annoying.

The muscle spasms are impinging on the nerves. Have they suggested a home traction set up? Really helps me when things get pissed off.

The traction doesn't make this numbness go away.
