Discuss with doctor: He/she will listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run some tests to find out if you have carpal tunnel.

Talk with your doc: Talk with your doctor about your weight concerns. S/he may be just as concerned as you are! you need to review your current diet for what needs changing -- perhaps your doctor has a nutritionist s/he refers to, who can help. Eat whole foods, eliminating processed ones as much as possible; low sugar; lean proteins, low-starch veggies; fruits, etc. Gradually increase movement and exercise.
