You are experiencing weakening hands. There is a certain degree I think that you can still do normal stuff at a normal force that is why hospital evaluations will not be able to trace your condition. My advise is for you to visit a physical therapist, or even a gym instructor. Your Carpal Tunnel is just starting to show it's early symptoms. All you need is flexibility and strength. Just my 2 cents.
Hello I see u have been having some problems with ur hands ok I to was tested for carpol tunnel and my doctor told me he was tired of dealing with it so I went to another clinic and seen another dr I was giving an MRI in 97 because I couldn't walk where I found out that I have dergentive disk diease which is a pproblem with my back so I went to see this dr and she told me that I may not have carpol tunnel at all that it could be my dergentive disk diease that is causing my hand and arm pain so u know it could be something some where else causing u to have hand pain just a thought I had thought I wuld share it
Hi - I would look for another doctor and someone in alternative medicine - maybe acupuncture, chiropractor, occupational or physical therapy like LadyViolet23 suggested. Even if you don't test positive for carpal tunnel doesn't negate what you're feeling - issues with your hands and arms that are not normal! You don't want to get to the point where you do actually test positive for carpal tunnel, as it's harder to reverse the affects.
For my story, I had some minor symptoms that I ignored for a while. Then, when I began working on the computer a lot more, and assigned to a high demanding project, my carpal tunnel really acted up (at the worst time)! Carpal tunnel seems to be an illness that Western medicine is inadequate to address. I'd try alternative medicine. For example, when I went to a doctor, he required me to take a nerve test, where he shot electric signals in my nerves! When I went to another doctor, she suggested doing the same thing, as she didn't trust the first doctor's results. That procedure was excruciatingly painful -- so I refused. I started using acudragon essential oil (green) as well, which really helped. It's a much better version of tiger balm or ben gay.
Am trying to figure out how to help those with carpal tunnel -- as it was a really horrible experience for me. Would love to chat more with you re: your experience and how I could help.
I too have carpal tunnel. I've had it for many years though. my symptoms seem to have become worse over time even though I had the pressure release operation done on my right hand. I am starting to believe though that the severity of the symptoms that people experience is related to food sensitivities. Personally I have issues with dairy products. If I consume dairy products I get severe tightening and tension in my forearms that is excruciatingly painful. It makes my hands very painful and my fingers get very stiff and hard to bend. More recently though I have discovered that if I consume foods that are part of the nightshade family my symptoms of numbness and tingling and a feeling of a lump under my arm pits gets much worse.others may want to try eliminating foods from their diet such as I have to find a measure of relief. I hope this helps
PS avoid caffeine like the plague. It definitely makes carpal tunnel symptoms much worse.
