Possible: Carpal tunnel synd (cts) can get better and worse depending on a number of issues. The initial treatment is easy, get a "cock up" wrist splint and wear it to bed every night. It prevents you from "dropping"your wrists while you sleep which puts pressure on the median nerve as it passes through the canal. ...Read more

You need to see: A hand specialist. The question is a bit unclear. If you had the surgery already and are still having issues and the surgeon is not addressing them see another hand specialist. An xray is worthless. Carpal tunnel usually has nothing to do with bones as much as soft tissue causing nerve impingement. Scar tissue is not seen on xrays. ...Read more

Ideally this would be compared to a study performed preoperatively. That can assess for recurrent slowing, possibly from scar tissue. Ultrasound is another diagnostic option ...Read more

Nerve conductn tests: A nerve conduction test is an excellent objective way to define the presence of carpal tunnel as findings can be subtle.I agree w/Dr. Ott that a good exam will help alleviate your initial concerns as you are young to have carpal tunnel.Typically @ this point we see tendonitis that's irritating the nerve(or causing neuritis) Try Occupational/Hand therapy,splint at nite,better ergonomics,stretching. ...Read more
