So, I had my occupational therapy eval on Wednesday.
The therapist was really nice and thorough and clearly saw why I was referred there from physical therapy. The bad thing is, even she's not optimistic about the exercises she gave me and said I probably need to be sent to a hand specialist.
I can tell they really want to help but it seems like it's out of their range of expertise. My physical therapist was a good one too, so, it's not a case of being handed off to people that don't want to help me. Now that I'm showing physical problems, I'm being taken seriously and they want to treat it.
A few things noted at the eval:
-wrist flexion extends to 100 degrees
-left MCP joint pops out of place with little pressure, right with a little more pressure
-instability is starting in right wrist
-all fingers hyperextend, which prompted the therapist to give me a ring splint for my left thumb
And that's all I can think of atm. Pretty sure there was more but my brain refuses to work right now lol.
Therapist told me she's heard of stuff like my stuff before but hasn't actually dealt with it. I was kind of the specimen of the day, and it was funny watching her and her partner's face lol. Really got a kick out of that.
So, yeah. Basically, my body is dumb. I have genetic testing coming up on May 4th, so that might officially confirm whether I have EDS or not. Still not sure what's going to be done for my wrist but we'll see, I guess?
For now, I'm kinda stuck wearing a wrist brace (prescribed by neuroscience center doctor) to keep it stabilized. It doesn't help the pain but it does keep it from going stupid when I hold things lol.
OKAY I think that's it. Sorry for such a long post.
