Some of you are more progressed than I am. The last few days my hand has gotten so stiff. The finger is thick, and stiff. I have had this for over a year, and now, this has happened in just a few days. I do find that massage and stretching helps, but , now that is not even doing it. I have an appointment with the hand surgeon, but, I am going to take all of the NA information in copy into him, and , tell him, I want to try this, before any surgery. I have had the cord for over a year. Now, I guess this has taken off to a whole new life of it's own. No one knows, except you guys, what I am talking about. This is now getting painfull, as the hand is getting worse. I know, that, from calling Dr. Eaton's office, it really does not take that long to get in there. They said, a month. That is really not that long. When I go to my hand surgeon, I am going to encourge him, to learn this NA treatment. I will bet you, he never has had another person come in there with this information. I would like to see him learn this. We need to try to do that. Let our doctors know that this is what they need to do.
