Avatar f tn Cubital tunnel is mostly experienced by men but whereas carpal tunnel is impingment of the ulnar nerve in my elbow. I've had surgery on both, twice. The EMG would have shown if you have nerve damage so that is good news that you don't. The tests on my left arm and hand were worse than my right, however, the right hand, arm and elbow are where I have the majority of pain so that is the hand I chose to focus on, I am also left handed and didn't want the down time.
Avatar m tn when my mom was pregnant, she had carpal tunnel induced by pregnancy and went on vicodin for the last two months of pregnancy as needed because she was in so much pain. i had to blow dry her hair and straighten it and do all that good stuff for her. so it might be that. her hands would hurt and fall asleep. it helped when she wore wrist guards at night while she was sleeping. maybe you could ask your doc. just a thought nd the only thing i could think of.
Avatar n tn So Bridget how can I reduce my chances of getting carpal tunnel while still working on the computer for many hours? Also whats my chances of getting carpal tunnel?
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn Following routine carpal tunnel sx, was given vicodin for pain. Took recommended dose of 1-2 every 4-6 hrs. Was ok when i wS taking just one. Became nauseous and vomited once that night.  Followiny day took 1 twice followed by 2 doses of 2 each.  vomited 12 hours later nonstop. Had orange urine too. Then remebered i had prob. after gb sx with vicodin, but didn't make the connection  right away. Went to er.  ast and alt in 600 range. awaiting new bloodwork done today. Now have a fever.
Avatar f tn Carpal Tunnel doesn't have anything to do with being pregnant. I know my mom has carpal tunnel in both of her hands. She got it because of the work she did for almost 20 years.
Avatar m tn The result showed I have carpal tunnel in right hand. I had surgery for carpal tunnel in the same hand in 1998. I also have been told that I have degenerative disc disease in C5 and C7 areas. My doctor said that the carpal tunnel can be coming from my neck and doing carpal tunnel surgery wouldn't help if it was coming from my neck. Have you ever heard of carpel tunnel coming from neck pain If so, what treatment would you suggest?
1386655 tn?1452097056 Hi, I was wondering is there anyone out there who has done steroid shots for moderate carpal tunnel and what was you outcome like? I was told mine is not severe enough for surgery but I need some relief. I'm at the point where I don't know what to do. Any advice,opinions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
Avatar f tn m 34w5d and I sleep on my hands which the good ole Internet tells me is carpal tunnel due to fluid in joints.. I feel like an elderly woman not one that's about to give birth!
Avatar f tn Has anyone developed Carpal tunnel or any other wrist pain during pregnancy? Ive had such an easy pregnancy but lately my thumb and wrist have been aching really bad. I heard its common to get in pregnancy.

I was told that it is carpal tunnel from swelling during pregnancy... it is making my job hard to do and totally ***** lol anyone else have carpal tunnel while pregnant?!

Avatar f tn I have to have surgery for carpal tunnel and I have found 100% relief of all my symptoms by visiting an Active Release Therapist, some chiropractors offer the services and some physical therapy places offer it. Made a huge difference.
7536154 tn?1400112427 I'm 36 weeks. And can't wait for this to be over lol. But I have severe pain in my left wrist. I'm a FTM. Any other moms experiencing carpal tunnel and if so how are you dealing with it?
Avatar f tn I have had carpal tunnel in my right hand for years, never in my left until about 2 months ago. I'm 33 weeks pregnant and the pain is almost unbearable. It affects my sleep to the point where I want to cry. I wear braces on both wrists but it doesn't seem to help much. Does anyone have any advice on what works to diminish the pain? I'm desperate!
Avatar f tn I'm 38 weeks and this last week started getting carpal tunnel. It's become almost unbearable and can't even move my fingers at night they hurt so bad. They hurt during the day also just not as bad. I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to take care of my baby when he comes.
Avatar f tn Seen my Dr 2day and found out i have carpal tunnel in both my hands. Has anyone else dealt with this if so what helped you?? My Dr recommended those lil cast looking things, but what helped you?
11812324 tn?1435883504 Has anyone else gotten carpal tunnel since being pregnant? If so, how are you dealing with it?
Avatar f tn I have carpal tunnel syndrome too, there are braces you can buy to help. I personally havent but my hands ache horribly as well. Just to crack my fingers is teeth clenching. I have pretty persistent numbness in my thumb pointer and index finger on both hands. My midwife offered suggestions to sleep with them propped up on pillows and to seriously reduce any sodium intake you might have. Plenty of water, thats what I read all the time. Good luck!
Avatar f tn m nearly 15 weeks. A nurse told me I have carpal tunnel, its hard for me to sleep at night and the nerves in my wrist and fingers hurt frequently. What can I do besides Tylenol and wrist brace?
Avatar f tn I'm 33+2 a ftm and I been having this since I was 30weeks I can't stan this my arms all the way to my hands get numb and they hurt I haven't been getting any sleep it's 4:15a.
Avatar n tn First of all, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. It seems you have to be a doctor to even figure out the correct place to post ;) Anyways, I was complaining to a friend of wrist pain and they kind of freaked me out. They told me that it's probably carpal tunnel, and they knew someone who had it, and their wrist would spasm and make it look like there was something moving under the skin. They said I'd probably need a brace and surgery as I got older.
