    Angry Carpal Tunnel at 17?? Please help!!!

    About 7 months ago I started having symptoms of carpal tunnel: tingling, pain in fingertips and soreness around my wrist area. I heard that tapping on the wrist was a way to tell if you have carpal tunnel, but I did that and didn't feel anything. I spend a few hours a day on a computer and write a lot at school, but I'm wondering is it possible that I might not have carpal tunnel, even after all these months? Is there another repetitive stress injury I could have?

    Do you have a cellphone and text a lot? There was a case of a girl about a year ago who was 16 and did about 4,000 texts per month. She did get carpal tunnel. You could have the beginning of carpal tunnel. Just be aware of how much you are online typing, texting and using your hands. Pinching and gripping seem to be motions that aggrevate cts.

    My son is 14 and he is beginning to show signs of it because hes a gamer. More and more young folks are getting it bc of the repetitive stress associated with technology. Follow the previous posters advice and pay attention to when it bothers you.

    I am extremely aware of it. but there's things I have to do. I have to write for school. I have to eat. I have to use my wrists for things. There's just recently been pain along with the tingling and I Just want it to go away. I don't want my life to be over because of this awful disease.
