: I don't have enough strength in hand to open up a new jar of mayo. It hurts to type this message.

: I have a dull ache that is in entire arm but it is mainly on underside of wrist and forearm. Is this carpal?

: This wasn't too bad until I had a spraining type injury at work 3 months ago, and this aching pain and weaknes have gotten progressively worse, not better, is this carpal? Thanks for your help

I would suggest you go get an EMG done. that is really the only way to tell. I,too, could not open jars or carry things that were heavy (such as a pile of dishes) for fear I would drop them...I had CONSTANT pain in my hands,wrist,fingers..I have carpal in both my hands and the surgery helped to get rid of the pain. The strength didn't get much better.However, I am pregnant and due in november. If you can believe it, I have had NNNOOOOOOOOO pain since I became preg and am PRAYING it doens't return once the baby is born. I wish you luck.
