When you hit your funny bone, you are hitting your Ulnar nerve. Its the nerve that provides the sensation to the ring and little finger. The muscles that bend fingers and wrist attach in the area of the Ulnar nerve. This nerve today has been very angry with me I think because I have been knitting and stitching too much. Just trying to get things done. I think what really did me in was knitting yesterday morning for a couple of hours and talking to my daughter. This morning after stitching for a short time the ring and little finger on the left side (the hand that holds my linen) were just hot, buzzy and angry. I have been very careful the rest of the day and doing some ulnar and median (carpal tunnel nerve) nerve gliding. I'm just doing position 1 and 2
and I've been doing the top set of median nerve.
There, you just got about $50 worth of therapy, FOR FREE!!
I am nearly done with Block 12 of Autumn in Hawk Run Hollow. If that pesky nerve wasn't an issue, I was going to finish that today. I have the wagon to finish and the grass. I really could have gotten in done today. 😞😞
Michiganders are being asked by Governor Whitmer to try and restrict behaviors that accelerate the spread of Covid 19 for the next three weeks. Being a healthcare provider, I think this is really relevent and important. Our hospital is in peril at times: full and staff is getting sick too, making staffing tenuous. The progression of the disease needs to be slowed. We are not the only ones in this situation,many. I have clients that are getting sick and I know people who have died from Covid as I'm sure many of you have too.
Hope you have had a good weekend. On the upside, we got the outdoor Christmas decorating done and it looks wonderful.
Stay safe everyone, social distance, wear a mask and wash your hands.
