Seriously. Ever since I woke up this morning, my left thumb has been numb. Not unusably so – as much as I need to use that thumb, it turns out I always hit the space bar with my right thumb, who knew? – but distinctly numb.
By a bizarre coincidence, I had an appt. with a medical professional this morning (nurse practitioner, for a poke at the ol’ plumbing), so I mentioned it to her. Her professional opinion, after ascertaining it was only the thumb, not the other fingers on that hand or elsewhere on that side of my body: “Huh. That’s weird. Keep an eye on it.”
It’s a Seussian medical nightmare, I tell you!
