Re: Shoulder Pain from CTS
My husband was recently diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome based on an EMG. He also had an MRI and was found to have two pinched nerves in his neck. The orthopedic doctor said that his shoulder and arm pain was from the pinched nerves. He felt that it was likely that the pinched nerves were what was making the carpal tunnel so bad that at times he was unable to cut meat!
Next week he is going to have epidural injections. The doctor thinks that this should relieve a the pain and much of the numbness and tingling from the carpal tunnel.
