Many of us are dealing with health issues and it is never easy on you or your family.
As has been said the internet can be a great resource in aiding in your fight but be sure that you use credible sources like the Mayo or Cleveland clinic as there is also a lot of misinformation out there.
I have always told my daughters that there are two people you have to trust. Your Dr and your car mechanic. If you don't look for new ones .
My Drs. don't always tell me what I'd like to hear, but after 20 years of standing with me during my many health issues I trust them.
Peace and strength to you and your family

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

I go in next week for nerve conduction tests on my neck and arms to see what is wrong with my hands. I have been doing terrible trying to adjust to my limitations, I am slow and my hands don't work right anymore. It is so difficult to not be able to do what I used to. It took me two days to change the alternator and serpentine belt and pulleys on my wife's car. I found a large pimple like thing on my privates last night, I can't win for losing lately. Just venting and worried about having something worse than just neck problems. I hurt my back bad in 2000 so can deal with the pain. Hoping its not Parkinson's or ALS, Could be one of those from what the Dr said. Please keep me in your prayers

Hang tough.
My limitations seem to grow everyday, but everyday I get up and keep on keeping on.
Took me 30 minutes to get a nut on a bolt last week. No feeling in my hands or fingers. It gets frustrating......

I guess most of us on here know the drill and how to deal with it when things dont work how they used to... but going down hill and not knowing why, really sucks.
good luck with the tests and stay positive.
