Management Of Recurring Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Hello, about five years ago I was diagnosed with CTS and had already taken medication plus an injection. After injecting numbness and tingling in my right hand, I never felt it again. But these few months numb and tingling began to feel again even more often and felt in my two hands. Do I have to inject more hands or what?
Hello Mei, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome / CTS itself is a collection of several symptoms such as hand pain, tingling or even numbness caused by a pinched nerve on the wrist. Usually the occurrence of crush caused due to an inflammatory or inflammatory process.
Responding to your case, there is now a similar complaint that is getting worse, after a few months lost due to drug injection. This is very likely to occur, if inflammation of your wrist occurs again, so that the nerves become pinched again or even worse.
Treatment that can be done is to use arm braces, non-steroidal inflammatory drugs, steroids, and surgery. Surgery is usually chosen if all methods still fail to overcome complaints felt by patients, for that you can consult an orthopedic doctor about the problems you are experiencing at this time.
Right now what you can do is:
Reduce the use of your hands, fingers, or fingers during activity.
Get enough rest.
Avoid heavy load deeds.
At rest try to keep the wrist straight.
That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
