Pain in the.....

I am tired......not the kinda tired where you want to go to bed but the kinda tired where you wish your brain would shut up. I have been sleeping better unfortunately with the help of Advil every night. It helps keep the swelling of the carpal tunnel down. I still have to wear the VERY sexy wrist braces and wake up with no feeling in my hands at all but at least I am not waking up numerous times a night in pain. Although I would prefer to avoid any medical intervention I am desperate for the symptoms to stop. I have spent thousands of dollars on natural anti-inflammatories, done the exercises, worn the braces almost constantly and gobbled Advil. It is a daily fight so it looks like the surgery is the only way I will obtain the relief I so need. I know that losing some weight will help too but even the endocrinologist that is treating my Hashimotos says that this disease is one that causes inflammation so this will be my lot in life. It should prove interesting to care for two toddlers with casts on both my wrists for two weeks.......
