Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

Feel for you - had them both but at separate times. My tennis elbow I sorted with one of those straps you can buy from a chemist that you wear 24/7 just under the elbow - have had it twice the second time I had to take antiinflammatories as well. My tennis elbow was firstly around 10 years ago - before fibro - firstly on my left side from carrying a laptop case (changed to a wheelie case and it gradually went) The second was from carrying too many shopping bags ( I usually take stuff back to the car regularly or have someone else with me - I didn't and paid the price that was about 18 months ago)
The carpal tunnel was as a result of a long distance bike ride 5 years ago - there was a surgeon on the ride and he said it would go 3 weeks from the day I finished the ride - and it did (it was from holding on too tight going down hills etc!)
Make sure you don't do anything to make either of them worse

Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

Try a search online for "study abstract carpal tunnel vitamin B-6".
I did PT for the elbow. A slew of studies (The Lancet journal) say cortizone injections slow down tennis elbow recovery. It crystalizes and creates little tears.

Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

Thought I was the only one...
I've got both forearms that seem to be cramped up quite often, with no real way of relaxing the muscles. I went to an Ortho Dr and he thought at first it WAS tennis elbow. So I got a cortisone injection. That lasted 2 weeks and then everything came back. The fact it affected both arms really intrigued him, especially since I don't do any activity that would require both of them to do the same amount of work (sports being the number one culprit).
I'm still not sure what causes this, but I will tell you that I've found my ability to strain or pull muscles has increased since getting whatever I have. Either that, or it's my sensitivity to pain, as in a lowered threshold.

Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

I have suffered from carpal tunnel for years and I worked in the food industry and thats what did it for me. I don't have tennis elbow but Ive messed up my ulnar nerve by hitting my elbow hard almost a year ago. I have carpal tunnel in both hands but it's alot worse in my right hand. It's constantly numb and can't use it most of the time.

Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

I used to get tennis and golfers elbow often due to stresses on my arms at work, along with carpal tunnel. The best band I found and did try many, is one called Band-It. You can search for it. As for the CT braces do help that.

Re: Carpel Tunnel & Tennis Elbow

I do find a lot of my fibro woes like to go bilateral. it makes me suspicious that your problem is fibro related, if you can't think of what you did to cause it.
