Smile Carpal Tunnel & Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Last week, I was diagnosed with both syndromes so I have been searching for any information anyone can have to offer. When the pain started a couple weeks ago it was on my left hand that went up to my arm. The upper arm felt weak but now, I've been feeling a pain on my upper back (from shoulder) & in my neck.
I have seen a Chiropractic who is also licensed to do Acupuncture & had some acupuncture which has helped. However the back and neck pain just started. Sometimes it feels hot or a tingling sensation on the upper back and neck. Has anyone experienced these symptoms? If so, how have you treated it? A doctor mentioned that besides our repetitive movements the way we sleep also adds to the discomfort. He suggested that if mt mattress is older than 10 years old, that I look into purchasing a semi-firm mattress. I also looked into mattresses and am confused. Not sure what the best kind would be and I'm not sure if I want to spend over $1500.00 on a mattress I don't know of or heard anything about.
I am open to suggestions or recommendations . Thank you for your time

Gladys
