:confused: I'm confused and hoping somebody can help me.
It started almost 2 years ago when I noticed strange sensations in my left hand in my little and index finger. Those two fingers became numb once in a while and than it would just go away for weeks. I was told given Neurontin for Epilepsy and was told it will also help with the numbness. I've been taking the pills for almost two years and nothing has changed.
The numbness is still there but these days on everyday basis. I don't know if it's somehow connected but my left wrist started to hurt 3 weeks ago and have been noticing pain in my elbow and shoulder of the same arm. Two doctors just recently told me that I have a Carpal tunnel syndrome. However, when I go and read about this condition, it says that the other part of the hand is usually affected. What should I do?? My doctors are already talking about surgery. The only test I had done was an X-ray of my cervical spine. It only showed a muscle spasm and straightening of my cervical spine but nothing major. If you know anything about this condition, please help. Thank you
