Is it possible to get carpal tunnel from masturbation?

Is it possible to get carpal tunnel from masturbation?

Sure: Many times the exact cause of carpal tunnel is not determined...Some people just get it. Some repetitive activities can cause swelling within the tendons of your carpal tunnel, which may increase pressure on the nerve involved. This may relate to frequency/duration of masturbation. Stop masturbating and see if your symptoms improve.

Can doing kendo cause carpal tunnel syndrome?

Hard to say: If by kendo, you mean the martial art with swordplay, then it would be hard to say. If it involves lots of blows to the wrist it could be possible. However, I would look for other causes first.

Can playing musical instruments cause carpal tunnel?

Can playing musical instruments cause carpal tunnel?

Very Possibly: Carpel tunnel syndrome is a compression of the median nerve via the flexor retinaculum. Any continued use of the wrist may cause compression of the median nerve. Piano, violin, and drumming are all examples how a musician could potentially experience carpel tunnel. It is characterized by numbness in the first two fingers and thumb along with wasting of the muscles on the palm side by the thumb.

Previous Dx carpal tunnel via EMG/conductivity. Symptoms improved recently and repeat of these tests is now normal. If problem had been caused by AL amyloid this symptomatic improvement and normalization of objective tests would be unlikely, right?

Previous Dx carpal tunnel via EMG/conductivity. Symptoms improved recently and repeat of these tests is now normal. If problem had been caused by AL amyloid this symptomatic improvement and normalization of objective tests would be unlikely, right?

Not necessarily: Amyloidosis is a condition in which amyloid can be abnormally deposited in the soft tissues. When amyloid is deposited in the carpal tunnel, it can cause carpal tunnel syndrome by directly compressing the median nerve. Improvement in the condition can then lead to a resolution in the carpal tunnel syndrome as the amyloid is resorbed.

Dr said I've got carpal tunnel, what should I know about this? What causes flair ups? Should I get a splint?

Dr said I've got carpal tunnel, what should I know about this? What causes flair ups? Should I get a splint?

Get treated: Night time splinting in wrist neutral position, manipulation or deep heating at the wrist, injections at the carpal tunnel, all, should be tried as they can prevent the surgical approach that is sometimes needed.

Does joint damage cause? Carpal tunnel?

Does joint damage cause? Carpal tunnel?

Rarely: Ganglion cysts and arthritis of the wrist can decrease the size of the carpal tunnel, creating or exacerbating symptoms. This is unusual. Most cases are age related, due to changes in the dimensions of the carpal tunnel and a lowered threshold for median nerve compression. Sometimes activities and overuse can affect carpal tunnel symptoms. Distal radius fractures can injure the median nerve.
