If you want to strengthen your hand against the effects of CTS, then I recommend you go to a physical therapist who specializes in this condition and get your exercises from them and NOT using something like the Handmaster.khris50 wrote:I've ordered one as I get numb/tingley sensation in my left hand fingers from carpel tunnel syndrome. I'm hoping that by strengthening the extensor muscles in my hand I can minimise the effects of CTS.
Yes you should see YOUR doctor. Whatever advice someone gets from their doctor is appropriate for their condition and not necessarily yours. If this happened overnight, with no warning, then if it were me, I would be calling my doctor for an appointment tomorrow morning. An overnight onset of weakness and numbness of fingers or hand can be caused by a variety of things, some of them quite serious.Trondis23 wrote:I thought this was a too small problem to go to see the doctor, and that it will pass away after a couple of weeks. But perhaps I should visit my doctor after all. I would appreciate it if you posted any advise you would get from a medical doctor.
