Health Update

I went to the dentist on Wednesday and he told me that everything was great and I should continue to do what I've been doing. I'm choosing to interpret that as saying he approves of my red wine and chocolate habit.

Last week I went to the doctor cos I've been having problems with my ears again. He said they were very blocked and he couldn't see anything so I had to get them syringed. Yesterday I went to see the nurse to do that and she said that she could clearly see my ear drums so she wasn't going to syringe them. She said that the olive oil treatment I've been doing must have cleared them, but I'm not sure it could have done that much. I'm also a bit unhappy cos my right ear still feels full and uncomfortable and I was looking forward to getting it fixed. Now I'm not sure what I can do about it other than hope it gets better by itself soon.

Speaking of hoping things get better by themselves, the ring and little fingers on my left hand as well as part of my palm have been tingling and kinda numb for a while. Doctor Google would seem to indicate that this could be Cubital Tunnel Syndrome but if it doesn't go away soon I'm probably going to have to go to a proper doctor to get it checked out.
