I have been having problems off an on for years with numb hands and tingling fingers, but in the past year my carpal tunnel symptoms have become rather severe. The pain would wake me up in the middle of the night, and I could find NOTHING that would relieve the nerve pain that was running through my hand and back up my arm to my shoulder.
I’ve tried many treatments for CTS including: 800 mg of Advil, double dosing with Aleve, cycling heat and ice therapy, and even banging my hand against the wall in desperation trying to wake it up from being so numb. But nothing seemed to help. No matter what I did, it would still hurt so badly.
My doctor referred me to a hand surgeon, but I never went because I don’t have time right now with a toddler to be handless for a couple of weeks after surgery. I have tried wearing a carpal tunnel wrist splint, but that seemed to make my symptoms worse!
I recently met a young lady who was wearing a cast, because the rigid brace that she was wearing for her carpal tunnel syndrome appears to have damaged or fractured her wrist because she was wearing it so tightly. She showed me her other wrist which was red and inflamed from the brace as well. That scared me.
I started seeing a chiropractor, and found relief from the pain from his massage therapy, but after 6 weeks, I seemed to hit a plateau in the chiropractic carpal tunnel treatment effectiveness. I was still waking with numbness in the morning, and my hand would go numb immediately when I tried to write, type, play guitar, or hold the phone. When I found the Carpal Solution on the internet one night when I was up and in pain, I was a little skeptical, because I have tried so many things that did not work. I was leery of the price, but I was desperate. I was afraid I’d be one the ones for which the Carpal Solution didn’t work, since I have hypothyroid and I read the disclaimer.
I have been using the Carpal Solution Therapy for almost 2 weeks every night and I have noticed a big difference!
