I was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel in both hands last December. I am in unbearable pain I've worn wrist braces and take Anti Inflammatory like they are Candy. I'm past the point of them working and I have now developed tendinitis in both arms. I can barely work, my Doctor refuses to give me any pain killers and is recommending I get open hand surgery.
I'm scared to get the surgery I just want to get some pain free days... I'm a Pet Sitter I work with dogs pulling leashes and carrying animals. I can't stop working. I don't know what to do? I'm @ the end of my rope. Any advice?
i'm 54.Experiencing menopause.Love to sew.Draw.Paint.Work on a computer all day.Take computer classes.Out of the blue, my hands are clumsy.My hands have pain.My thumb hurts.Doctor here at the appointment today did NOTHING.
I think I read in one of these threads that TMJ can cause the ears to itch. Anyone know anything about that? I can deal with the jaw pain. I eat soft foods when it's bad but refuse to give up pizza and soft pretzels, or bagels (the worst for me). But my ears itch 24/7 , just about 365. It would just be nice to know that I'm not alone.
