In brief: Wrist brace

If you wear a wrist brace to prevent flexion of the wrist, or get steroid injection close to the carpal tunnel, you can feel better==- if no help, as for surgery if carpal tunnel confirmed by nerve test.

In brief: Bracing can help

First, i would recommend an evaluation by a health care professional.
There are a number of other diagnoses that can be confused with carpal tunnel syndrome. Assuming that the diagnosis is established as carpal tunnel syndrome, a good initial treatment would be bracing at night and during the day when you are experiencing symptoms. Many stores and pharmacies carry carpal tunnel splints.
