- Los Angeles
The weather has just recently turned cold in LA, and I was at an outdoor family gathering this evening. At the end of the evening, my hands were frigid and my right hand -- the weak one -- was SIGNIFICANTLY weaker than usual. In fact, it was pretty useless, which scared me. By now my hands have returned to warmth and my right hand has returned to its baseline level. My question for anyone who may know - do these temporary cold spells have a cumulative effect, i.e. speed up progression? I am hoping to take a trip with the family to the mountains this winter where hands will get cold (despite best efforts with gloves), but I would think twice if letting hands go cold contributed to progression of weakness.
