: I have been suffering since 1997. I have a mild form in both wrists. My biggest trouble is night time, or holding a phone and sometimes writing to any extent. I have tried all sorts of wrist gadgets and they prove so uncomfortable at night, they only aggrevate the problem. My mother had it on one wrist and wore her brace for a year,. It went away and she never has had any trouble. I do the hand dipping in wax and have gone through tests and therapy. I would like to know if there is anything on the market that is comfortable to sleep in. I've spent so much money on braces, and feel that if I could go one year with a proper brace at night it might work. This syndrome was brought on after I spent two weeks straight stripping my daughters furniture. Then 2 days later this pain and it has never left. Seems so strange that this brought it on. I never had any sign of trouble before. Please advice. Thank you.
I've been told that this condition can show up when you've reached that overworked point and
getting back to where you were before is going to take more time than it did showing up. I
too was at a point where I could not hold a phone, a coffee mug and turn a door knob
without letting go because of the pain. Please see my entry above in response to Jeff. I found
out that some women have a deficiency in vitamin B-6 and it really helped me in addition
to physical therapy. I had all of those tests done also and when the pain got really bad I
conducted my own research. Be sure and check with your doctor before you try anything
on your own. As like your mom, it's possible to get over this. Take care,
