De Quervain duhh!



The orthopedic surgeon who attended to me today taught me this medical terminology. He actually broke up the three parts and explained to me how the term is coined. LOL.

Teno is tendon
Syno is like a membrane.
Vitis means inflamed.
If I recalled correctly.

It's a disease named after the person who discovered it - De Quervain.
So that's the first thing the doc said to me - "You got De Quervain disease."
I went like: what disease?!


Anyway, I am sharing this with you so that you will know should it happen to you cos it's pretty common among those who are dexterous : D
Nahh ...I mean those who do lots of typing and carry heavy loads of groceries etc.
It affects a specific spot on your wrist.
The pseudo-GP might mistake it for carpal tunnel but it's not it.
Ok go google carpal tunnel now. LOL.

So the doc gave me the hardest...toughest jab I have had in a long time. And I was impressed by the doctor's knowledge on hakikah and adab.
As if to protect me from hidden polytheism he reminded me just before he poked that fat needle.
Recite selawat and remember that it is not me or this medicine that cures you, it is Allah who cures you.


And he prayed so that I belong with 70% of the population, those who only need one jab. Else the pain might still be there and I will need another jab. It all depends on your rezeki he said.

The jab was pretty tough so I called upon Allah Al Latif to be a lil gentle on me.
I would like to think that I am his first patient who made zikir ya Latif loudly during the procedure 
: )

Alhamdulillah, Allah is ever so kind that He caused the disease to manifest on my left wrist instead of my right wrist cos soon I will sit for 3 hours + 3 hours written exam! Allah is kind indeed.
So kind, that when we are ill, we get to see one of the best specialists in town.
That we didn't have to wait long to get an appointment.
That someone pays for our medical bills.
Yes, we have to be specific in counting our blessings.
Alhamdulillah wa shukrulillah.

Dexterous me?
Hah hah hah...
Teno sino vitis
De Quervain punya hal LOL
