NSAIDs: Carpal tunnel syndromoe is inflammation of the median nerve as it passes through the front of your wrist. Typically its caused by over use, so the mainstay of treatment is rest, avoiding activity that aggravates it, use of a night splint, and nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If it continues to bother you then carpal tunnel release to decompress the nerve may be indicated.
