My fingers wont work!!!!!

Trying to answer questions and commenting on blogs has been a nightmare today. My fingers just dont seem to want to do what my brain is telling them to do. They were alright yesterday and they're not cold so why have they got a life of there own today. Its driving me mad and is so frustrating. My spelling is bad at the best of times (and getting worse) but today its diabolical (have I spelt that cos my fingers just will not behave.

  • Sorry Moggie. What medication are your taking? I am sorry your fingers are painful. Have you had your B12 checked as that can cause problems too. Maybe you need an increase too in your meds.

  • No Shaws they are not painful - they just seem to have a mine of there own

    Meds fine, just waiting for another course of mega strength ViD from hosp (so very tired) and, apart from my fingers not wanting to co-operate with my brain, I'm doing o.k.

  • shaws is right though, fingers not responding to brain input is also a symptoms of low b12, my fingers never did what they were told before but since I've fixed my b12 they behave really well :)

  • Just a a shed load of tests, including B12, done and will be picking up results from the hosp tomorrow so will have a look.

  • there is a 'fight' going on at present to raise the normal blood value of b12 to 550 as the very minimum of normal as there is research showing that at levels less than 550 some individuals have low b12 in their cerebrospinal fluid leading to problems.

    gp will not treat you if above 200 but you keep in mind only a level above 550 is sufficient and in some cases even above 550 people still have symptoms as they need to be above 1000 to be well

  • Didn't realise they were looking to raise the range levels - who's doing the fighting NBD and how long before it possible comes into force. The more info I have the better armed I will be when I see my endo at the end of April, my last test result was 312 but maybe I'll have a pleasant suprise tomorrow when I pick up the latest ones as I was supplimenting for a while.

  • I know exactly what you mean. The connection from fingers to brain is intermittant here, sometimes delayed, sometimes non existant! My hand writing has gone to pot, even I cannot read it! I may as well have fists at the end of each arm - really fustrating, and I end up shouting at my hands to "work, you horrible things", but they dont take any notice.

    Although my Vit D was tested as "normal", I may try a suppliment and see if it makes any difference.

  • Funny you should say that as my VitD is low at the moment but others on this blog are saying B12!!!!

    I have got to admit this was ment to be a bit of a tongue in cheek blog as I do hit the keyboard at 90mph and then wonder why half the letters are missing or
