Right hand pain when doing foreplay. Carpal tunnel? Too much repetitive motion?

Right hand pain when doing foreplay. Carpal tunnel? Too much repetitive motion?

Not likely: It may be the position of your hand during foreplay. Extremes of wrist flexion or extension may put pressure on the median nerve, inside the carpal tunnel. Thumb arthritis is also a common cause of hand pain. Either of these conditions could be your problem. Try to get into a comfortable position and if you start to feel discomfort, change positions. ...Read more

Can emg determine if carpal tunnel cause of hand pain? Mri shows cervical stenosis. Emg only done on arm, confirmed carp tunl, not done on neck?

Yes: The nerve study can determine if there is a compression at the neck or further down such as the wrist in carpal tunnel syndrome. This is only one portion of the diagnostic workup and should include a full exam by a hand surgeon. If there are 2 issues then release of the carpal tunnel is generally regarded as the first line treatment as recently evident in an article published this month. ...Read more

Likely from the fall: You likely have an exacerbation of your carpal tunnel syndrome. I would use a velcro wrist brace to help. If the pain doesn't improve with bracing, ice and rest, you should see an orthopedic surgeon. ...Read more

I have carpal tunnel in both of my wrists, lately my hands have been going numb quicker then usual. My left thumb hurts after it's numb. Why?

Pain in thumb C6: There's an entity called a C6 radiculopathy which may explain the isolated pain to that digit as well as numbness. Also, something called TENOSYNOVITIS could explain the thumb. You are awfully young to be having bilateral CTS. What type of work you do? I know you've got wrist braces but has your diagnosis been confirmed by either a good neurological exam or an EMG/NCV test? If not, consider them ...Read more

Have carpal tunnel in right hand . Numnus in middle finger 24/7 can you help?

Carpal tunnel: First I would ask you if carpal tunnel syndrome was diagnosed by physician or are you assuming this is what you have? If you do have Carpal tunnel and numbness is constant it is very likely time for surgery. This is especially true if you have tried splinting without success. You run the risk of permanent nerve damage. This is not terribly difficult or risky surgery. ...Read more

I woke up twice this past week withy fingers tingling numb on right hand.  Took a few minutes to go away. I've read it's possibly carpal tunnel?

Numbness: This depends on which fingers were numb. If it was the thumb/index/middle fingers then it is likely carpal tunnel(pinching of a nerve in your wrist. If it was the ring and small fingers then it could be cubital tunnel syndrome(pinching of a nerve in your elbow). It is also possible that you could have a pinched nerve in your neck (cervical spine) that caused radiating numbness to your fingers. ...Read more

Sharp pain in top of right hand I have carpal tunnel in both hands but I'm right handed and I'm a cashier constantly using both hands?

Interventions: Cumulative trauma to your hands will cause progressive symptoms and some simple measures may help. Wearing wrist splints that fit nightly can help reduce compression. Vitamin B-6 100 mg twice daily, and an anti-inflammatory will help. Recommend EMG testing, and if severe findings, a simple outpt decompression will literally reverse the symptoms. ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When i wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When i wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?

Yes. : Yes. Carpal tunnel syndrome is structural. A normal tunnel that tendons and nerves pass through to the hand is tighter or looser in individuals based on genetics--just like loose or tight joints. Those of us with tight tunnels gradually develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The end result is permanent nerve damage (weakness, atrophy, numbness). It's nothing you are doing that is causing this. You are just starting to notice that you have the disease. It is a very slowly progressive disease and you might be able to manage the symptoms with wrist splints at night for years. When you start getting numb in spite of the splints or when the numbness lingers for more than 5-10 minutes, then it's time to have surgery. ...Read more

The last few days my right hand on the left side on my wrist has been sore. Could it be carpal tunnel or more a strain. Fingers are fine ?

Varies: It does not sound like carpal tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a compression of the median nerve in the wrist and usually causes pain or numbness into the thumb, index, and middle fingers. I would not hesitate to be seen if it does not get better. An exam and appropriate studies can usually determine the cause. ...Read more
