I'm 21 and am a full time student and write papers constantly. I believe I have carpal tunnel because I have broken my left wrist and shattered my right hand. The only thing is they are very different in their symptoms. My right hand is painful and I wake up with pain in the morning, it subsides in the afternoon, then in the evening it's very painful and I usually ice it. However, my left wrist dosn't hurt at all, but I experience a constant "falling asleep" pins and needles feeling in my left hand. I usually take anti-inflammitory and it subsides during the afternoon (usually). Is it normal to have these different symptoms? Does anyone have advice?
