: Hello, I have posted alot on here about my problems with Carpal Tunnel and Workmans Comp. Now i decided once the doctor gave me another thing i had to do, which would be painful. I decided to drop the whole workmans comp case and just go to my normal physician and get this fixed once and for all. Well now the pain hurts even more, i tried going back to work, doing some other type of work. IN home health aide, instead of medical billing. That is too much for me also. Now I dunno if i should get a lawyer or I should just do what they want once again, which is take coritizone shots in my wrists to see how i react to them, and that will tell the doc if i have carpal tunnel or not. Which sounds bull to me. I did an Emg it came out negative. I hae all the symptoms but they love just stringing me along. Anyone have some advise. I wanted to give up because i was so tired of all the trouble from it, but the pain isnt worth it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanx so much.

I am starting my 3rd mounth recovery.Still hurts a little while sleeping,but before I could not function.Now I can drive my car almost without pain.What I did mainly was stop all activity.DMSO seemed to help some.Everything else I useed was also MSM,vtimin b and c,zinc,magnesium,calcium and long hot soaks everday.Cold makes my left wrist still hurt a lot like wrestling my Thanksgiving turky,So I took a small hot soak break and did a minimal size course.I stress that I stopped moving to start my cure.I am only self employed and had done some work and money ahead,or so I thought at the time.I do not believe I can go back to my same job and stay uninjured.The wrist brace is a nice idea,but a joke to rely on completly.Injury after 5 years part time for this job.Tested myself on some twisting,pressing, torque job strains and it threw my wrist again 30%bad after 20 minutes.
