Medical question.... Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
I've got a question for you. I've been miserable for a couple of weeks with a very sore wrist. It almost feels like I fell and landed on it and jammed it or something like that but I really haven't. If I put any pressure on it the wrong way it hurts like heck. For the past week at least it's been pretty bad and I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong. A little while ago while making dinner I was complaining about it and out of the blue my ten year old son says "Dad, maybe you've got Carpal Tunnel Syndrome". Well I've got to tell you that it just about floored me! I don't know where the heck he came up with that or how a ten year old would know that but I think he just may be right. It's my right wrist and I'm left handed. But in this right-hand leaning world I've gotten used to using nothing but my right hand to control the mouse when I'm using the computer. Sometimes after a while it does get pretty sore even when I haven't been on the computer for long. But it may be just a lot of short term sessions.
Basically though I thought that C.T.S. gave you problems in the hand near the first knuckle. But maybe I'm wrong, can C.T.S. also give you wrist problems? I think I may have to talk to a doc if it doesn't get better soon but right now I'm going to take an Aleve because that seems to help a little.
Thanks for any input!
