Hello.. I too just had carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand only 1 week ago. I have have had pain and swollen joint since mid Aug. Doctors are not sure what is wrong with me either, they are treating me for RA. I am taking 200mg of doxycycline daily along with Glucosamine Chondroitin, MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)along with Vioxx. I have been in pain for month, having difficulty getting out of bed, opening jars, walking, getting out of my car. I was to the doctor yesterday and the doxycycline has begun to take the swelling down, My joints are still stiff and painful, but nothing like they were.
As far as the carpal tunnel, I'm starting to get the feeling back into my fingers, and hope to be back to work next week.
Hope you are feeling better
: hi i'm a 23 year old male, i had surgery for carpal tunnel on my left hand in march, shortly after that, i began getting aches, both wrist/elbows and sometimes my shoulders ache when i'm holding the gas pedal on my car my ankle hurts, and while walking for 10 minutes feels like an hour, i have a lot of snapping in all my joints, the doctors said that's normal, but i've never had it before, he gave me some celebrex to take twice a day for 10 days 200mg but it didnt seem to help, my left arm if i press with my other finger near/around my elbow joint on the top of my arm i get a pain, feels kind of like the bone is bruised, i've never broken anything, and i dont understand, i'm not currently working cause of this, and i have no insurance, but my doctor recommended seeing a rheaumatologist, i had blood work done and he said it didnt show arthritis, i also get these twitches every now and then in random places, but my calcium is also fine, any help would be much appreciated.
