Double crush syndrome

I have chronic arm numbness all night and pain all day. My neuro wants to try a experiment with me wearing a wrist brace while sleeping to see if it stops the numbness. He thinks I may have carpal tunnel syndrome which leads to numbness. My mri's prove the right arm pain is due to my adjunct ion segment disease below my previous fusion. Which means two surgeries instead of one if he is right. Next step is a emg but the opening isn't until January 26th. After that we will know more. Anyone ever been through this "double crush syndrome" basically the same nerve is affected on each end. It's double the pain. Thanks
