Unfortunately, it worsened every winter and
I would enter spring with a bonus disability (swelling, rash
, cold intolerance). My first neurologist (due to insurance, I have had 8) advised me to take up tennis in 1999, as I am left hand
ed, to slow the progression. Unfortunately, in fall 2006, I lost the ability to grip involuntarily and
had to give up tennis. VA doctors say there is no objective evidence, therefore it doen't exist.
