: I AM ASKING FOR HELP.. I KNOW I HAVE CARPAL TUNNEL, I HAVE HAD NUMB FINGERS ON AND OFF FOR OVER 3 YEARS.. BUT NOW ALL AT ONCE MY LEFT HAND STARTED GETTING NUMB AND PAINFULL, THEN AFTER A FEW DAYS, IT WENT UP MY ARM TO MY ELBOW, WITH IN A FEW MORE DAYS IT WENT UP IN TO THE TOP OF MY ARM... NOW IT IS IN MY SHOULDER AND CHEST. THEY HAVE SCHEDULED ME FOR AN EMG OF THE HAND ARM AND AFTER THEY TOOK XRAYS OF MY SPINE THEY ADDED ON FOR AN EMG OF MY NECK AREA... I AM ON ALLOT OF PAIN MEDICATION PLUS HAD A CORTAZONE SHOT IN MY WRIST. DOES CARPAL TUNNEL RADIATE PAIN THAT FAR?? I WAS TOLD THAT THE EMG WILL BE, IN NICE WORDS, HECK.. BUT IF THE PAIN ALREADY IS HECK...WHAT WILL THIS DO?? MY FATHER TOLD ME NOT TO CONSIDER SURGERY BECAUSE IT WILL GO AWAY WITH TIME.. AND SURGERY COULD LEAVE MY HAND IN WORSE SHAPE... IS THIS TRUE?? WILL TIME HEAL IT??
: PLEASE HELP BECAUSE MY EMG IS SCHEDULED FOR TUESDAY!!!!!!!!!!! I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO?? DOES THE PAIN AND OR TINGLING TRAVEL UP THAT FAR????

: Shirley, your symptoms sound just like mine. I have Bilateral Carpal and Thoracic Outlet syndrome. See an Ortho. Email me @ BlessingTwo@aol.com with any reply's pls. I do not check these mess boards often. Good Luck
