I thought I would do a follow up on this - I had previously blogged about the pins and needles I have been suffering with each morning. I have now discovered that they think it is carpal tunnel syndrome. Apparently people with rheumatological conditions are more prone to it and my doctor suspects the raynauds attacks have damaged the nerve leading to carpal tunnel syndrome. I have to go and get some splints fitted to wear at night to keep my hands straight to try and stop it - I hope it works. I am sure my boyfriend will find it an attractive look in bed(!!!). Thankfully he is brilliant and very supportive. Both hands were terrible on Saturday morning - I couldn't turn my alarm off or pick my glasses up properly!! I am hoping it won't start to affect me during the day but I did notice it yesterday at the gym. I was on a cross-trainer and one of my hands was going numb whilst I was holding onto the arm of the machine. One of the previous replies on my blog came from someone who had also been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. I suspect this may be something quite common. I am feeling pretty hacked off by the whole thing. It just seems to be one thing after another!
