: Neurologist said I have Repetitive Stress with CTS - having EMG next week. Also, pain in forearms is most prominent
: of symptoms. Seeing chiropractor for about 4 weeks (twice a week) - no real relief yet. How long should I give him?
: Tried acupuncture - no results either. Taking B6/bromelain/vitamins, etc. Use computer on job. Where can I find Active Release
: Therapy on internet? Searching doesn't come up with anything. I will ask my chiro. This all started about 4 months ago, in fingertips when
: I would use the mouse. Now it escalated throughout entire arm and neck. Chiro said it comes from the neck. Also affected legs and feet, but
: that seems to have improved. Any advice would be appreciated. MaryAnn
Sounds familiar. I have CTS and my first surgery is on Wed. I've had a hard time getting doctors to look past the CTS and hear me when I talk about the pain in my back, legs and feet. Currently, I'm checking into thyroid problems. I have been treated for hypothyroidism for over 3 years. Throid disorders can contribute to CTS and a lot of other things. Just a possibility to look into if you get tired of chiropracters. I tried that too.
