I have pain in both wrists. It is on both top and bottom of the wrists. At times they go cold and stiff. They also get stuck in different positions and my fingers also. I have had radial nerve surgury on the left arm in Jan. Is the pain symptems carpil tunnel? Thanks bachache

  • Do you get pins and needles in you hands? I used to and I had to shake them vigorously to get the blood flowing again.the best way to find out if it is carpel tunnel you need to get a nerve conduction study done (they send small electrical shocks up your arm and test for a response time, it's not painful just uncomfortable).

  • Hi, I suffered from the same. I use keyboard and mouse a lot. Now I take breaks and do exercises during my workday with help of one of the special programs, that called break reminders. It's Workplace Angel. It's really good program. I think that prevention disease is better than its treatment.

  • Trackballs decrease the distance your shoulder has to travel, which may help reduce movement-related pain. Some mouse designs work like a joystick and may help. You can also use a touch pad, a pen and tablet, or a foot-operated mouse. Try a variety of devices, and use the one that feels most comfortable.http://www.ourhealthwisdom.com/RSI Another thing you can try to reduce pain is the learn the short cuts to operate computer, which might minimize the pain.

  • I have been told by a surgeon that i have symptoms of Thoracic Outlet Syndrome which can cause the type of pain i am feeling. But i am having a very hard time finding a doc to test me and tell me that i have it. Thanks for all the info.
