CTS Update By Austin

Hello Dr Bland,

Many thanks for your help with the login problem.

This is my six monthly update.

My condition remains very much the same. I continue to have mild symptoms, especially numbness when cycling and on the laptop. These are manageable and do not impact too much on my life. Might I suggest that I could come for a test in six months time (late February 2022)? At that time you could possibly advise me whether to continue with the six monthly updates or switch to annually.

Kind regards

Sounds like a good plan. It would be useful to document the current symptom level by adding a new severity score to the website - there is now a button to do this on the home page once you are successfully logged in. JB

Hello Dr Bland,

Thank you for your reply.

As you suggest, I have now completed the Severity Assessment. I would like to note that there are a few activities not mentioned in the survey that, when performed by me, produce mild to moderate symptoms of numbness/pain. These particularly include cycling and working on a computer.

As you appear to approve the idea, I will contact you in February 2022 to make an appointment to attend your clinic for a test.

Kind regards

They do look fairly mild symptoms. Hopefully we will both make it to next year :-) JB

Hello Dr Bland,

This is my six monthly update.

As usual, I have nothing of note to report. My symptoms remain largely unaltered. Mild symptoms which include some numbness at times, especially when cycling. As a matter of course, I continue to wear a splint at night, but as I have been doing so for years, this has become second nature and does not trouble me.

Personally, I do not feel the need to come in for tests, but I am happy to be guided by you in the matter.

Kind regards

I think it would be interesting to check them again at some point but the Feb-May period is usually quite a difficult time of the year for clinics so I'm happy to leave it for the present as long as your symptoms are stable. Let me know what it's like in the Summer and we'll have a think about it. JB

Hello Dr Bland,

Many thanks for your reply.

I'm happy to wait until the summer, as you suggest. Unless I experience any worsening of my symptoms, I'll be in contact
again in August.

Kind regards

Hello Dr Bland,

This is my six monthly update.

No significant change in my symptoms. I continue to experience mild numbness whilst cycling and occasionally on the computer. As I have mentioned in the past, these symptoms appear to remain at the same level, no better and no worse.

Unless I hear from you otherwise, I will be in contact in six months. Naturally, I would contact you immediately if I started to experience any worsening of my symptoms.

Kind regards

It's probably about time to add a new formal symptom severity score to the website records but I don't think we need to see you unless there has been a significant change. JB

Hello Dr Bland,

Many thanks for your reply.

I will be in contact again in six months, if you wish to add a new formal severity score to the website records at that time, please let me know.

Kind regards.

It looks fairly good on the  latest one now doesn't it. Always worth doing another when reporting back in. JB
