Is this a strain or more?
What does a Rheumatology person do as I have just booked it for September though? doctor say's I have Carpal Tunnel but I'm also noticing I just did some food shopping carrying 3 not so heavy bag but feels like can not carry much as if it's straining in my left hand which is worse would Carpal do that or as I think have I more likely just strained my hands? Left hand does seem only slightly swollen and chunkier than the right.
Also my tummy has still got that pull and tug init which is probably just acid but what else can i use at home tried Rennies only helps a little a bit. Help with all of the above would be good don't want to trouble Dr s thanks.
No one here on this portal is in a position to diagnose. You've done a good job in seeking the advise from your doctor.
You should continue to do exactly as you are to get the help you need from the correct licensed health providers.
I wish you well soon.
Typically it is caused by repetitive hand motions. While anyone can get it, typically Typists/ computer people etc. get this.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel can be weakness, numbness, tingling, pain nd/or weakness in the hand/palms. Mostly felt in the thumb index middle and some of the ring finger. And, these symptoms can be intermittent.
You probably would do better going to an orthopedic, as opposed to a rheumatologist. A rheumatologist deals more with arthritic conditions, which carpal tunnel is not.
But check with your doctor, and good luck.
I would seek the advice of your physician.
I hope this Helps!
