: 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.

Been there & done that!!!
It does sound like a lot of bull!! I had an Emg test done prior to surgery & after surgery. It was positive before & negative after.
I was told that this is an indicator to determine CTS.
This may sound silly, but this actually worked for me, when I was having wrist pain.
First of all make sure you sleep with that silly splint & there are some B vitamins to take, but
I can't remember which. Tape your wrists, because this helps relieve some of those symptoms
you are experiencing.
The way to tape it is to take the thumb & the pinkie & hold it together, while you wrap the tape around the wrist in that position
Make sure it's not too tight or too loose. Don't worry you won't have to walk around with your
hand in that position, because it won't stay like that.
A Chiropractor told me this actually helps release some of pressure from the Carpal Tunnel.
It sounds strange, but it worked for me.
Good luck!!!
