The occupational medicine doc asked a third-party physical therapist to review my condition, and he concluded that I am pretty much over the deQuervain's, but my thumb joints are definitely arthritic. The tennis elbow is just an unwelcome bonus (and he bruised me up pretty bad doing the initial treatment).
It sucks to hear that I've probably got a permanent condition -- newest doc wants to look at the bone scan and blood work before saying anything for certain. I'll probably check back into counseling once I've got word, just to help adjust the ol' brain. :D
Oh, and I'll have to repeat until I believe, "Opening an L&I claim does not make me a failure." Darn early programming about only losers getting help from the state...

Saw the physiatrist for the last time today for the result of last week's bone scan. Survey says: rheumatoid arthritis. Since my previous clinic didn't forward any of my info, he ordered new blood work for sed rate and rhematoid factor. At least it was just across the hall...
I do hate that I'm becoming a connoisseur of phlebotomy technique. This last one felt like she went in overhand. :D
So, it's off to the occupational medicine doc tomorrow, and maybe I'll make some progress.

A neuro-headset which interprets the interaction of neurons in the brain will go on sale later this year.
"It picks up electrical activity from the brain and sends wireless signals to a computer," said Tan Le, president of US/Australian firm Emotiv.
"It allows the user to manipulate a game or virtual environment naturally and intuitively," she added.
Sign me up. :D
