(back) Subject: Have you had anything like this? From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Sat, 09 Apr 2005 09:59:15 -0500   About three months into my practicing for my recital I had horrible pain in my left thumb and the fleshy area below. It was like acute arthritis, but there were no outward signs of inflammation, no swelling or discoloration. I kept practicing - it didn't seem to hurt when I practiced - and after about a week it went away.   Now suddenly I have it again, and it is affecting the index finger also. I bathe the area in Aspercreme, I am already taking Celebrex every day, and I'm trying to limit using it while gently keeping it limber. Aspirin (daytime) and vodka (nighttime) do not dull the pain, and I don't want to take anything stronger that would interfere with my advising clients, preparing pleadings, doing court or sleeping. I am having trouble holding anything weighty, and sometimes the pain is so excruciating the thought has crossed my mind to cut the thing off.   The only thing outside my routine that I did this week was play organ and piano 3 hours Monday night. The pain didn't start until Thursday. Again, there are no external signs except that every now and then the veins in the thumb pop out, and there's a slight pinkness in the flesh between the thumb and index finger. Upon examination I can feel no abnormalities, but it is tender.   I'm told it doesn't sound like carpal tunnel, and gout is accompanied by inflammation. I'm going to break down and see my doctor. But have any of you had similar symptoms? Could I be subconsciously doing something in practice that would cause such a phenomenon? I've racked my brains, and am clueless.   Thanks.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com

It affects the median nerve, Thumb first, then the first two fingers and later the whole hand. Accupuncture helps to deal with the symptoms . That's how mine got started. Get Help and get it fast. One of the contributing factors could be Hypo Thyroid or in some cases Diabetes (Adult Onset). It will come and go at first, but be sure that it isn't likely to go away by itself. MD's can be of some help, but in my case they were useless. Get on this now don't do what I did and trust only one kind of medicine.   Sorry for the bad news, but don't fool around with pain killers that only mask the symptoms. It's usually the left hand.   Ron Severin

It might not be my preference for that moment, but on reflection, his "Ave maris stella" settings are very "stirring" in a quiet way. The combination of the tune's associations, and the remarkably rich contrapuntal work in the second verset, make this some of the most approachable music of its period. If the French classic period had continued in this vein, we'd have a very different balance of counterpoint and color than we got. It's still kind of a mystery where this contrapuntal richness in France came from, and why nobody picked up on it in quite the way Titelouze did.   But, yes, I wouldn't play it for my mother's funeral or anything...   John Seboldt

(back) Subject: XPost on Religious Product News From: <rredman@imagin.net> Date: Sat, 9 Apr 2005 13:41:05 -0500 (CDT)   I wonder if any of you see the magazine Religious Product News? We had a good boost in the February issue. In an article by Gary M. Gray, president of Stained Glass by Shenandoah, he states "Nothing in the life of a church raises money easier than stained glass (with the possible exception of a pipe organ)". He then relates a story about a committee that was almost overwhelmed by the $75,000 cost of a proposed window. He simply asked them to take the design to just one or two people for funding, and then relates that apparently they did not need to speak to the second person; and that a check for the entire amount was written on the first day of the presentation. We all have stories like this to tell. On one of our last organs, the committee was very doubtful about funding. When the priest announced the project at mass, one man came up afterward and gave the whole amount! The problem, then is usually with the leadership. They think there will not be enough money for other things they want to do if a pipe organ project is presented, not realizing that usually there is money available for a pipe organ that would never be given for anything else.

From: <RonSeverin@aol.com> Date: Sat, 9 Apr 2005 16:09:35 EDT   Thanks Randy:   The burning sensation alone will wake you up at night while trying to sleep. Carpel Tunnel is a nasty disease with sort of a cute name. It can, if not treated can cause permanent damage. When you have it, you know it. At the best of times it feels like you've got sand and sandpaper under your skin, the skin of your finger tips especially. Other times it feels like fire or icewater under the skin. It can also make the skin feel like there's something moving under the finger tips and thumb and palm like worms. You can also experience tendonitis of the elbow or funny bone. As you say, don't fool around with this stuff.   Ron Severin

The main symptom is aching pain on the thumb side of the wrist and at the base of the thumb, which becomes worse with movement. The area at the base of the thumb at the wrist is also tender.   To diagnose the disorder, a doctor performs a Finkelstein test. The person bends the affected thumb into the palm and wraps the fingers over the thumb. With the palm facing up, the doctor rotates the palm toward the middle of the body. If this movement causes pain, the test is positive for de Quervain's syndrome.   Rest, warm soaks, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are effective only for very mild cases. Injections of corticosteroids into the tendon sheath are helpful in 80 to 90% of cases; surgery is needed occasionally. Jim
