In other news....I was asking my neurologist about some numbness that I've been experiencing on my left side, and his diagnosis wasn't exactly what I expected. Here's the play by play recap:
Doc: Where is the numbness exactly?
Me: Right here, along the lower left side of my rib cage
Doc examines the X-Rays carefully
Doc: Well, that's probably being caused by this rib fracture you have here
Me: What the?!
He was surprisingly casual about it. I guess in relative terms, it was the least of my worries, and probably was lost in the shuffle. I think they call that triage...
