Masturbation/Carpal Tunnel

I was recently diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrom for my right hand. This is weird because the only repetitive motion I have ever done is masturbate. Can you get carpal tunnel from excessive masturbation?

Always chance of mis-diagnosis. How about another doctor for confirmation?

Re: Masturbation/Carpal Tunnel

I didn`t think anyone would take me seriously. Yes I did see another Doctor, who asks me if my hand goes numb wll hanging by my sides. And know, the circulation is good. But laying flat on my back, or having me hand on top of the steering wheel of my truck, or especially typing...make it go numb. The worst is at night, I`ll wake up all through the night and not be able to feel my hand. The second Dr. just gave me an order to have my neck X-rayed...he thinks I may have done something to my neck that is restricting the blood flow.Thanks.

Re: Masturbation/Carpal Tunnel

My wife had this, and had no repetitive motion in her daily life. It turns out, she was sleeping with her hands turned towards her lower arms. That was what was causing the carpal tunnel. She got something to hold her wrists straight, and it eased up.
