: Hello,

: I am not sure I am in the right area. Is this where I can get some advise?

: If so, I have had pain in my neck, shoulders and forearms for some time. 1-2 yrs, I now have pain in my wrists, both front and back and the palms of my hands and fingers. I experience both arm and hand weakness. My hands get cold and achey when I type.
: I loose sleep at night too. Its very painful.

: I have seen a dr has done blood work and cortizone shots and states that its tendonitis and that there is nothing to be done and says I must live with it.
: Says possible relief from a Pain clinic.
: I have see a Chiropracter,Massage Therapy and a "Health Healer" with no results.

: Aren't there another ways to determine if in fact I do NOT have carpal tunnel and indeed tendonitis? Or do I just take his word for it?

: Please advise

: Fran

Hi Fran,
My name is Sabrina and I have the same problem you do. It started about 6 years ago and then when I quit one job it went away. Then I went back to the same type of work and it came back with a vengence. I seen one doctor and he told me it was carpal tunnel. He suggested wrist splints at night and an anti inflammatory. They worked for about a year. You can have a test done to be sure that is what it is the test is called and Emg. It isnt the most comfortable test in the world but if it helps in getting rid of the pain it is worth it. Feel free to email me if you would like to talk about it. Good luck
