Do you remember a time, years ago, when the only time you even noticed any sensation in your hands was when you hurt a finger or they got really cold? That's the way your hands should be.

How are your hands now? Maybe you just have tingling once in a while, OR maybe you get numb fingers when you comb your hair or ride a bicycle OR maybe you mostly get numbness at night maybe causing you to lose sleep. Maybe they hurt. Perhaps you drop things or find it difficlult to use keys.

Maybe you've already given up activities you love. Maybe you have to hold dishes in two hands for fear of dropping them. Or maybe you're scared about the future.

Now imagine, if you don't do anything to help yourself, how they will be two years from now, five years from now, ten years from now.

What would happen if you couldn't use your hands for anything? Do you think your problem will just go away? Think again. Or maybe you think you will wait until you need to have surgery. Bad idea. Why? I'll talk about this later but surgery is risky and has a high failure rate. And even when successful, your carpal tunnel syndrome often comes back years later.

YOU can avoid surgery and get your hands back to normal. Besides that, most of the time it isn't even carpal tunnel syndrome that is causing your problem. (Even if a nerve conductivity test says it is).

You do not need…. Pills …. Shots …. Braces ….. Gadgets …. Gizmos …. Surgery…. Office Visits.

This is mostly because the fluid that lubricates them can dry up when repeated movement of the fingers makes the tendon go back and forth, back and forth inside that hollow tube. Pieces of the tendon and tendon sheath scrape off, causing more irritation in the tendon. This signals your body's immune system to send in fluid with special remarkable cells called macrophages. These guys can squeeze in and out of just about anywhere. What they do is gobble anything that doesn't belong there — whether it is bad bacteria, dead cells, or even little pieces of metal. When you take anti-inflammatory drugs, it is like turning the engine warning light off in your car. The macrophages don't get the warning alarm that there is a problem. So that gunk accumulates in your tendon sheaths. In the the short term drugs make you feel better. In the long run it will make your problem worse. Some doctors know this…
