Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Help!!

Use boxing hand wraps and concentrate the most of the bandage on the wrist, instead of the knuckles. May looks dumb but it help keeping the wrist straight with the arm. I do that sometimes when I know i'm gonna be playing for a couple of hours!

Well my primary care doctor said it doesn't seem to be carpal tunnel syndrome, but possibly a pinch nerve somewhere. He did some test like tapping my hand in certain places and bending it, but nothing really alarmed him. I did fall asleep a couple of weeks ago with my neck going to one side and woke up sore, but the soreness went away. I can't for the life of me figure out whats causing my tingling and occasional pinching sensation in my hand. My blood test came back all fine except for a little bit high calcium which is okay. Could this tingling and pinching be due to stress? Told my doctor to get me a referral to a neurologist in which he sent one. Now I just got to wait to get the approval and get an appointment. Has anyone gotten a pinched nerve before and had the same symptoms?

The problem with CT is once you develop it, there is no making it better without surgery.

Get to the Doc ASAP. If you indeed have CT, you're only making it worse by waiting.

I went to the doctor who said that its possibly not CT after he did a couple of bends in my hand and taps that never triggered a strong tingling and pinching sensation. I did get a referral, but since I'm on medi-cal I have to wait about a week or two to get a yes or no to go and if its a no then its going to cost me out of pocket. I'm not sure what it might be at all. My doctor said it could be stress too that cause you to start to have tingling and weird feelings.

That is absolute crap. Not only are you a troll when it comes to console wars, but you're also a troll when it comes to medical opinions.

I know, man. Saw it after I posted. Hopefully it's just something minor that rest or change will remedy.

Ignore dueric, his post was BS. I have seen plenty of people diagnosed with nerve impingement syndromes heal without surgery, probably 95% of the people I have worked with.

Regarding your diagnosis ... impingement on a nerve anywhere from the neck to the wrist can cause the symptoms in the hands/wrists. I thought you already were diagnosed with CT based on the topic title and OP. If it's not inflammation in the wrist, the most likely culprits are elbow, shoulder or neck. Focus on elbows at your side, shoulders relaxed and neck straight forward. If your TV/monitor are so high that you look upward and bend your neck backward, that would be a red flag, similar with twisting or bending the neck sideways.
