    Ditto!! Was too "busy", distracting for me. As you said, Paul, best stroke support site ever!!

    That's it exactly! No, I didn't use any lotions of any kind. It's weird that they were there for so long then, overnight, they're gone!! Thank you, Becky!!

    Yes, most likely it is.

    Upon doing some research, they are very similar to cholesterol deposits. Usually found in the eye area. I had those years ago, they're gone now. I just thought it strange that they appeared , on my hands, after the swelling had gone down, so I thought they were stroke related.

    Thanks Heather and Janelle. I'll do some research later.
  6. Three months after my stroke, my affected hand swelled to the size of a bear paw. When the swelling went down, there were white bumps on the back of it, not filled with anything, just bumps that were mildly itchy. They've been there for over 2 years. Yesterday, I noticed them on the back of my good hand. This morning, they are gone from both hands. ?? Surely I'm not the only stroke survivor who's had this. Any ideas on this?

    Tracy, thanks for the link! I'll look into it. Heather, you wear me out just reading about all you do! My interest is growing now. Off to do more research. Thanks! Scott, thanks for the interest!

    Does getting a massage, on the affected side, help anything? I've never seen anything posted about it.
  9. Here's my post, hope it gives you some ideas -- help with hand curling

    I've seen only my family doctor since out of the hospital, I've done just fine!!

    Janelle, I'm with you on this one! My arm/hand is still useless, also. I'd love to have full use back.

    If it's a Closed group, it won't be searchable. and none of your friends can see it. It's very private.

    Thanks! I was going to do a search but you've saved me the time.
