It seems I have carpel tunnel syndrome. First I had it off and on, a doctor confused it with arthritis, and when they finally decided what it must be I was told to do absolutely nothing for 2 weeks and then slowly resume activities. I have therapy exercises, but can't do as many as they want me to do. I wear braces most of the time and take an anti-inflammatory and another pain medication. This has been going on for about a year and nothing much has really helped me improve to a normal or near normal state. I hear the operation only works about half the time, so I'm not excited about that at all.
Do you have any suggestions?
