  8. Sharon L. Bieniek says:

    Had numbness in right pinky and one half of ring finger (from ulnar nerve) on right hand caused by repetitive motion from making knotted rosaries. Had therapy and stopped making the rosaries. That was in 2020. It has returned, now in both hands, for no apparent reason; no repetitive tasks, etc. Had therapy in the summer of 2023 (6 sessions) and at this time, has not improved. I also have had systemic lupus for over 36 years and am on 7 medications. I am hesitant to try anything that will interact with those medications. Thank you.
