Just wondering whether this is ataxia related - presumably sensory or peripheral neuropathy - or not (essentially do I ask now or wait and bring it up when I next have a routine neurology appt).
For years I’ve had impaired sensation in my hands and forearms and I’ve put it down to calloused, desensitised skin because I cut and burn myself so frequently. When I burn myself cooking I do 10 mins under running water because rationally I know what the consequences are, not because It hurts.
Last time I had the wrong bit of my arm under running water (the resulting wound not pretty) and this week I’ve cut my fingertips twice (it’s only Tuesday...) chopping veg, but not realised until I see blood in the bowl.
When I’ve seen a neurologist in the past (UK) I’ve been stabbed with the little pin with nothing flagged, but I think they mainly stab you on the feet? The little pin and big tuning fork make me laugh in cerebellar exams. Way more fun than your run-of-the-mill medical appt 🤪
