My hands tingle ALL the time. Carpul Tunnel Mild to Moderate for me, but the pain can be excruciating. I have to use wrists braces....Walgreens sells them.
I about fell off the table with the needle in my left hand, just under the thumb! I still drop things and it was nice to hear my DOC say, "It's a 50/50 thing with surgery, its a temporary fix." I said, " I have trouble with the steering wheel."
If my hands get worse, I may not be able TO drive any longer. I just live with the pain cause NOTHING they give you can cure it...prescription or over the counter meds wise!
I thought it was fibromyalgia but beware.....MANY doctors and therapists too do not believe in that and they associate depression with the body aches and pains..........yep! I was surprised too that my own PCP shook her head to it. If its NOT real then why give it a name and list conditions?
Good luck to ya! And yes.. Im in pain as I type!
