Anatomy Lesson from NotionsCapital

Anatomy Lesson from NotionsCapital

Got racing handlebars on your bike? Feel a numbness in your small fingers after a while? Your may be damaging your Ulnar nerve.

Play bass fiddle? Feel a numbness in the fourth and fifth fingers of your left hand after a few sets? Bingo. Ulnar nerve entrapment. See your doctor.

I have gained my extensive medical education the same way I’ve learned about cars — as things break down. Today I’m getting my Ulnar nerve re-routed to the other side of my elbow to end the Novocain-like numbness in my little fingers (sorry about this technical neurological language) so I might be slow in responding to email and comments for a few days.

When I do answer, I’ll be medicated to the gills and typing one-handed — just like most of you!
