After my strokes, my right arm was very weak. I regained the strength and what tests have shown that both arms have the same strength.
Nevertheless, I have noticed recently that my right arm and especially my right pinky seem a little "off."
I've also noticed that when I have seen pictures of me, my right arm is not straight and my right hand is almost clenched.
It is not really noticeable until I think about it. However, it seems more apparent recently.
Routinely I get acupuncture. Acupuncture has always helped me especially right after the strokes. My right arm was essentially just connected to my brain. I could move it but it did not seem like it was my arm. My acupuncturist helped reconnect my brain to my arm.
This month I've had several appointments with my acupuncturist. He also has noticed that my muscles especially on my right shoulder are incredibly tense. He is focused on my right side and my pinky has gotten better.
I wonder if this is "just in my head" or is it real? Do you have a stroke, every headache or ache is worrisome. Today as I am writing this, I'm laying upstairs with a massive headache. That's pretty normal for me. Norco is my friend.
As I lay on a bed in pain, I ruminate about my pinky. I have to much time on my hands...or my pinky.
