Saw the neurologist for a routine follow-up on my Syrinx. What he discovered, instead, is the beginnings of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. The Dvorak keyboard layout has been helping me a lot, and I hadn't had any twinges since I converted over. Unfortunately, I'm not at my own laptop any more, now, and I have to use QWERTY most of the time on the PC's and servers I'm working on.

The doctor suggested that I wear a brace at night, since apparently we end up doing more damage at night, bending our wrists under us, than we do during the day--or rather, perhaps, the body doesn't have a chance to heal properly, and instead we do additional damage.

So, I wore a brace last night--except that I was deep in a page-turner suspense book ("Immoral," my dad must have picked it up on the Book of the Month Club; I hadn't heard of it before). So, I didn't sleep until 4am. Even so, after wearing the brace all night, I don't feel as tingly and twingy this morning.

Crap...that really makes it sound compatible with CTS.

Oh, I guess I never posted this..
