The fact is permanent nerve damage has been reported in the medical literature, but it is extremely rare and only happens in the most extreme circumstances where people are exposed to extreme compaction for many years. Most people find that once the pressure on the Median Nerve is removed, their symptoms go completely away.
Yet these traditional medical responses have not only often failed to alleviate the symptoms but also sometimes aggravate them and have some disconcerting complications and sometimes have some frightening side effects.
For instance, While NSAIDS (anti-inflammatory medication) are ideal for dealing with short bouts of pain, it is generally agreed that these oral pain meds are poorly suited for chronic pain and inflammation of the sort that CTS sufferers have to deal with on a regular basis. Those who take high doses of Advil, Aleve or Motrin every day and every night to reduce inflammation and cope with the pain and numbness often wind up with severe gastrointestinal complications and more recently there have been reports in medical journals of complications to heart function with chronic exposure to these type of oral pain meds.
Cortisone injections may only offer short-term relief and may cause immune system suppression and other complications. Surgery can not only be debilitating in the short term, but can also weaken the transverse carpal ligament holding the carpal tunnel together resulting in weakened wrist and permanent loss of grip strength without achieving a long-term solution.
