The course of steroids is happily finished. I got an extra night of not being able to sleep just to round things out - didn't sleep until 3am on Thursday morning and then predicitably felt utterly rubbish when I did eventually wake up. Lucky I had a day off yesterday!
I have noticed no improvement with the numbness in hands and feet. It is really beginning to be inconvenient now as the right hand side is much worse affected than the left... and of course I'm right handed. Can't type properly, can't write properly, can't do my hair and make up properly... the frustration!!!
In addition my circulation is very poor, this means that my feet (especially the useless right foot) are constantly freezing.
