: : : Hi, I have a question. What exactly is carpel tunnel syndrome and its symptoms? my boyfriends hands are always stiff and they always hurt. i thought it might be arthritis but then a friend said it could be carpel tunnel. he wont go to the doctor either. any information would be greatly appreciated.

: : I would suggest your boyfriend go to the doctor. If indeed it is carpal tunnel and it goes untreated,he could eventually have damage beyond repair. I have carpal tunnel in both hands and have also had surgery in both. The symptons vary but mostly there is constant pain, numbness,tingling, loss of strength...The thumb,pointer,middle finger hurt,the wrist name it,the list goes on...Like I said,he needs to be checked.Only an EMG will determine how badly it is,if indeed it is CTS. Good luck!

: : i know he really needs to see a doctor but he refuses i dont know why. i'm just really worried about him. does the surgery help at all? what do they do when they operate?

The surgery helped ALOT!! I always had a burning and it went away immediately. It takes time to recover (about 6 weeks) and a full year until its all better. I don't have the strength anymore but the pain is gone and that alone is worth it. They were still bothering me alittle but now I'm pregnant and for some reason it's not bothering me right now,we'll see afterwards.again, get him o the doctor before he has permanent damage!Good luck!
