There was a case when my left middle finger was numb. The therapist, after listening to my story, made a diagnosis - arthrosis of the left hand. Of course, I doubted that at the age of 24 there could be arthrosis. Indeed, I did not find any similar symptoms on the Internet. But the diagnosis "Carpal tunnel syndrome" was well suited to my problem. After two weeks of arm exercise, the numbness disappeared.

It will be almost literary now. At the training camp on the very first day after the morning run, I got a bad cold, they sent me to the medical unit, where the doctor listened, knocked, looked and with eyes enlarged from fear wrote "pneumonia" on the medical sheet. The fright could be understood - I was a cadet from the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, without a few weeks a reserve officer who arrived for training as a part of a separate cadet company and accompanied by two lieutenant colonels with instructions to make sure that nothing bad happened to the cadets during the training and that they whole and healthy returned to their native university. For further examination and confirmation of the diagnosis, I was sent by a separate convoy to the nearest city polyclinic, half an hour walk from the location of the unit. There it turned out to the great joy of all those involved that there was no trace of pneumonia, and the wheezing heard by the captain-doctor was nothing more than an ordinary, albeit rather strong cough. In the medical unit, however, then they kept me for almost a week. Just in case.
