I just recently visited another doctor for yet another nerve conduction study. This one was of my hands. I have lost a lot of muscle mass and I was told that an operation would only cause more neuropathy. My back is inoperable and now my hands. They are so weak and shaky. I think I have hit an impass that really made me realize how crippled I am and wonder what is to come. My legs are pretty weak along with my feet. I have lost so much sensation dealing with bladder and bowel control.I am living in a hot climate and have been suffering with profuse sweating of my head and neck. The neurologist informed me that the nerve conduction to the area of temperature control are being weakened and aren’t functioning correctly. Even in A/C I continue to perspire. It is like a furnace in my head.
I am sorry to be so negative,but this visit had me crying in the doctor’s office. I am not writing for pity. I just wanted to let others know that you aren’t alone in this. I will never give up and I will continue to dance and use weights to keep me strong. Thanks for listening to me. I knew all of you would understand. I hate CMT,but we can’t give in to it. Stay strong,laugh often and know we are here to listen.
Wishing you more good days than bad! Karen
