My Bad Arm

Posted Oct 4, 2018 - 12:18pm

Over the last few months I have been having difficulties accessing my SGD. Normally I access my device with my left hand, but I have lost control over it. This makes me feel very frustrated and angry that I can’t do what I used to. It is kind of like breaking your arm and it never heals. I always hope one day I will wake up and it would miraculously work again. I find myself getting depressed because I have lost another ability.

About a year ago I started to get Botox in my right arm and hand to help stop the involuntary movements. It did help a great deal so I thought I could get the shots in my left arm and hand to help me to have better control. However, my doctor told me I have a lot of dystonia (Involuntary muscle contractions that cause repetitive or twisting movements) in my left arm and Botox wouldn’t help. So he has referred me to a brain and spine neurologist to have further tests.
