Has anyone ever been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel?
What kind of symptoms do you have with carpal tunnel?

The articles I found did not tell me much!

Thank You! ;)

    can be difficult to diagnose at times.
    There are many other problems that have similar symptoms as Carpal.

    Tennis Elbow

    are two of the major problems I can think of right now that can cause some of the same pain as with Carpal.
    An EMG test would help diagnose this problem along with other diagnostic tests (X-ray, but MRI is too much)

    The pain you may feel is anytime you turn your wrist, pain can shoot up from your hand to your elbow. You might have an aching feeling in the elbow down to your hand.
    And if it is in your right hand and go shake someone's hand who has a firm grip, you might see some stars

  • I have been thinking so hard on what else could be wrong with me. I was trying to wash dishes Saturday and I couldn't hardly even squeeze the soap out of a half full bootle. So Sunday I try it with my right hand and there is a major difference. I started to think about carpal tunnel, but what I read on it does not match up with me. My pain starts from the Neck and radiates into the shoulder and arm. I guess what got me on this subject was the fact that I started having numbness and tingling in my right arm and hand. I guess when you hurt, you start looking for alternatives for your pain. I just want answers. I am so tired of this. I just feel like backing in to a corner and crying! :''(

    starting from the neck and working its way down to your hands and fingers are one of the classic signs of cervical disc problems. If a disc is hitting a nerve, you can have a lot of loss of feeling and strength in your hands.
    Depending on what disc, what side, you may experience problems radiating down from your neck and into your hands.
    I had problems for a while gripping things. I could not hold tight onto something.. Some of that was because I had a loss of feeling and numbness and my hand and because of the problems, I had a lack of strength in my hands also.

    Keep on top of all of this.
