May not be carpal: tunnel (CT). According to the theories of John Lyftogt, MD & as seen in my practice, not all 'carpal tunnel' is due to the classic median nerve entrapment.More importantly, diagnosis by dr. that truly understands peripheral neuropathy may provide best diagnosis & treatment.Starting w/neurologist may be helpful.The whole syndrome has me suspicious as Sjogrens, fibro, & CT DON'T have same cause. ...Read more

The trapezium and scaphoid for the radial side. Flex the 3rd digit and look at the palmar hand side. The long flexor's tendon will be visible, the median n is just to its thumb side.

Sharp pain on left thumb & wrist & spread to forearm which makes it feel very heavy and numb occur most night.Is it carpal tunnel or nerve compression?
Could be CTS: It sounds like it could be carpal tunnel syndrome (cts)which is a type of nerve compression, but this will often affect other fingers rather than just the thumb. Is it on the lateral or outside of the thumb? It could be a tenosynovitis as well. If you look up a test called a finklestein test, you can check yourself and see if its that. If you have neck pain, it could also be a radiculitis. ...Read more
Is there anything besides carpal tunnel that can cause an electrical feeling in your hands and forearms
See Neurologist: Yes, carpal tunnel is specific to median nerve compression. If the ulnar nerve is compressed at the wrist(guyon tunnel) or at the elbow(cubital tunnel) then patients can have symptoms related to that. Other causes could be related to nerves being pinched in the neck area and these are called radiculopathies. In some patients diabetes or thyroid disease can cause symptoms. See a neurologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Carpal tunnel over the years I have slowly built wrist pain that i'm assuming is carpal tunnel. I have heard from some friends about endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery as a great way to help alleviate the symptoms. Can someone help explain what this
Minimally invasive.: Endoscopic carpal tunnel release (ectr) is a minimally inasive technique for releasing the carpal ligament. I use the microaire system in my practice which allows for a much smaller scar that is well hidden in the transverse wrist crease. I have patients who have had an open procedure on one side with an endoscopic release on the other hand who report kess pain and faster recovery as well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

RSI can improve: Repetitive stress injury can take a long time to heal. Improper ergonomics and incorrect posture can be a contributing factor as well. Best treatment is appropriate stretching and strengthening as directed by a physical therapist, being mindful of posture, as well as taking breaks from repetitive tasks. Consider having your neck evaluated as a pinched nerve can cause similar pain complaints. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
