Numbness CTR: Depending on the severity, carpal tunnel syndrome after skilled surgery can take up to 6 months to improve. If the night pain has improved, but the numbing and tingling has not fully resolved, you can still be part of the >90% that get better with time. You are 2/3 the way there! the blood supply improves immediately, and with it the pain. The insulation (myelin) takes time, so it can take months. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Both are right: You likely have a compression of the nerve that runs from your neck to the fingers.....Either where it originates in the neck or somewhere along the course of the nerve, such as near the elbow.

I wake up every morning cause of my both hand fingers are tingling mainly thumb, index, middle and ring finger. Normal?
See your doctor : It's not unusual to have swelling and stiffness of your finger three weeks after a laceration, depending on the injury. However, if you don't get the finger moving soon, you may develop stiffness of the joints and the tendons in your finger. You should see a hand specialist, who will make sure you don't have any additional injuries and will likely refer you to a hand therapist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ulnar neuropathy: Your symptoms appear, at first glance, to be an ulnar neuropathy. I share your concerns, however, if you are having symptoms in the rest of the hand as well. If you are having weakness in the hand, forearm or arm I would be concerned about a brachial plexopathy (injury to the network of nerves in the shoulder). I would discuss with your primary doctor, and consider a neurologist. Take Care! ...Read more

6 weeks ago i had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands one severe one moderate. I am having extreme pain with 3 fingers on severe tingling and numbness in fingers painful in both hand is this normal after carpal tunnel surgery
I'm : I'm sure your surgeon is looking after you to be sure there are no problems, so i will just give you the good news that this is extremely common and part of the normal recovery process. I hope you find the following perspectives helpful: 1. Think of when your leg goes to sleep. When you get up and take the pressure of the nerve the "blood rushes back" and it feels worse for a bit. That's what happens when you release severe carpal tunnel syndrome. Except that it can take weeks to months to resolve. Sounds like you are in the period. 2. I'm sure the severe side is not as satisfying as the moderate side. Severe cts is associated with permanent nerve damage which you will experience as numbness, weakness or atrophy. It can be very discouraging and even unsettling to find that you are still numb after surgery. The good news that is entirely expected and consistent with successful surgery. The bad news is that while that "blood rushing back" feeling will get better, the numbness is likely permanent. Nerves recovery slowly, so you won't know the final result for 2 years or so, but people with severe cts need to understand that they have permanent nerve damage. That unsettling feeling that comes with realizing the difference between the hands and "trip the alarm" and actually increase your experience of pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
