My hands and feet have been getting very swollen. My hands puff up on the phone or computer especially; with a bit of training, I bet I could learn to feel just how many rads are coming off of which hotspot, just by the icky feeling and instant puffiness. (Puffiness is driven by a neuro-vaso-muscular response called the “sudomotor response.” Also drives sweating.)
I left the computer off & unplugged for 24 hours. Left the phone at home while I was out today. Hands: hardly puffy at all, until now — they’re inflating as I touchscreen this entry. Mood: ooooh, grouchygrouchygrouchy. And such a headache…!
Think I’d better back off on the radiation. I do not need that kind of physical or mental alteration. I do need the tech, but I can manage it better.
I knew my hands inflated near my devices, but the confirmation that they don’t inflate normally was a relief.
