My left hand is seriously messed up.
I somehow must have injured myself, because I’ve got a sharp pain below my thumb when I use my thumb in certain positions or apply pressure to it in any way. Even typing this is causing some discomfort. The pain got much worse this weekend after we went bowling – my suffering meant that Brogan could not celebrate in his usual, boisterous fashion.
Can any of you help me with a diagnosis? I saw a doctor yesterday, but I wasn’t overly impressed. His beard was long and smelled like fried chicken, and he insisted on being paid in brandy. 15 minutes into his examination, he collapsed unconscious right there on the corner of Franklin and Portland in south Minneapolis. Some doctor he was; I can barely even read his handwriting on my prescription!
Nevermind all this. I just did some checking on WebMD, and it turns out that it’s just seasonal allergies.
