Had a nerve conduction test a few months back on both wrists. My right broken wrist had healed quite nicely, but then a misguided attempt to supplement physio (pulled out my manual typewriter to strengthen my fingers), lead to a severe case of carpal tunnel in my right wrist with my left not far behind. The fingers on my left hand have been profoundly numb for years.
I’m scheduled to see the neurosurgeon about my carpal tunnel in a few weeks. While the nerve pain has subsided, my wrists still ache and are weak with over use or weather changes. My questions are these … How much of the loss in nerve conduction is carpal tunnel vs Demylination? Would surgery improve the numbness issue? Should I redo the nerve conduction test?
Just wondering if anyone has had a similar experience? I find its always a challenge to figure out what’s MS vs other😜 Thanks!
