Does it happen that people get relief from carpal tunnel syndrome by massage therapy?

CTS. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by swelling about the flexor tendons at the wrist. "tendon gliding excercises" have been shown to decrease tendinitis and pressure at the carpal canal and thereby improve the symptoms if carpal tunnel syndrome. Massage modalities may benefit in a similar way but studies are limited regarding this. Read more...
Sometimes. Carpal tunnel happens in individuals who are predisposed to having excessive pressure on their median nerves at the wrist by virtue of their wrist anatomy i.E smaller or larger carpal tunnel, sensitive nerve. On top of that predisposition, overuse of the wrist and specifically flexing/extension will bring on symptoms. While massage may presumably "loosen" up the tightness, the relief may be short.

What drug can I take to alleviate the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome?

NSAIDs. Carpal tunnel syndromoe is inflammation of the median nerve as it passes through the front of your wrist. Typically its caused by over use, so the mainstay of treatment is rest, avoiding activity that aggravates it, use of a night splint, and nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). If it continues to bother you then carpal tunnel release to decompress the nerve may be indicated. Read more...
Pain nerve. Nerve pain can come from compression, thus starting with otc meds such as nsaids ( Motrin alleve etc) is worthwhile. Some severe carpal tunnel presents with refractory nerve pain and there is whole class of medications that treat nerve specific pain , but these do not treat the carpal tunnel swelling only the nerve pain symptoms corticosteroid injections can work but in severe cases not fully.

Help please! What drug can I take for the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome?

Brace, NSAIds. Many patients with carpal tunnel find relief from wearing a brace that helps immobilize the wrist. Nsaids can also lessen the inflammation and pain. Furthermore, cortisone injections can help the symptoms. Sometimes medicines like Neurontin and Lyrica (pregabalin) can be used. Finally, surgery is always a possibity if conservative measures fail. www.oano.com. Read more...
Not much. The only oral drug that has been clearly shown to benefit CTS in randomised trials is prednisolone. You are not going to get that over the counter and wouldn't want the side effects. NSAID's, diuretics, gabapentin - all no better than placebo in trials. Amitriptyline, pregabalin - no trials to judge by. Rest and a splint is the best self-help tactic. Read more...

What medicine should I take for the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome?

Non-op modalities. Common non-operative treatment modalities for carpal tunnel include night splinting, anti-inflammatory medication, and corticosteroid injection into the carpal canal. Ultimately the goal of these modalities is to decrease pressure/swelling (anti inflammatory or steroid) and prevent decreased space (splint) at the level of the carpal canal. Read more...

My mother discovered today that she has  carpal tunnel syndrome. The doctor said it's stage 5. What are the most effective drugs out there?

Depends. If she is overweight, then an exercise program may be of greatest initial benefit (would need to avoid cycling or other maneuvers that strain the wrist). Ultrasound therapy, nsaid antiinflammatory drugs, and wearing an orthotic splint are helpful for mild-moderate symptoms. For more severe cases, steroid injection is considered and a surgical consult is warranted. Read more...
Not much. Carpal tunnel syndrome is usually classified as stages 1-4, with 1 being mild and 4 being severe. Once you get to the severe stages, medications don't really have much of an impact and surgery should be considered in part to lessen the possibility of " nerve damage." Surgery for this is outpatient and fairly minimally invasive, so it is definitely a consideration in severe cases. Read more...
