pain in thumb


Recommended Posts

It seems my carpal tunnel syndrome is NOT carpal tunnel.

I had a physiotherapy appointment this morning.

After various tests and exercises, the physiotherapist declared it was not carpal tunnel.

None of the exercises produced tingling in the fingers which he declared would have been a primry symptom of carpal tunnel.


It seems the correct diagnosis is general arthritic wear and tear!

I am being sent a new set of exercises to help, and will be referred to a hand clinic.
