I have mild truncal LD (dx 2006 after surgery) and also arm/hand LDin dominent arm (2011/12). I am a nurse and have to find another job (non clinical) due to infection control risk of wearing sleeve. Having to write loads of notes all shift, as well as using arm for examinations/treatments., would make my arm really heavy and achy too, even though only mild LD.
Have now done computer job for past 3 years as i thought this would be doable, and it's not. After a day at the computer my arm is achy, heavy as well as truncal area. I have tried shorter shifts, wear compression bra, sleeve, glove, workstation adaptions with no improvement.
I have decided to apply for IHR as current job exacerbates LD (even though only mild) and can't go back to clinical work.
just wondering if anyone has similar experiences?? XX
