Hello all....Was wondering if anyone has heard anything about or even tried one of those carpal tunnel cremes? They are also supposed to be effective for things such as tendonitits and other related problems. I have seen them advertised, but I am a bit skeptical. I'd really appreciate the feedback! Thanks.

Carpal Tunnel
Hello dawn, I have not heard of a creme for it. I do not think it would work. I have carpal tunnel in both wrists. I had surgery on my left wrist about three weeks ago. I get the stitches out next week. Believe me if I didn't have the surgery I would still be hurting. They call it a carpal tunnel release. Because it gets inflammed and needs room. I also had to have other surgery on my thumb. I cannot remember to medical term, but what that was, was a pinched tendon. They had to cut the tendon to make room. That was also very inflammed. Wink
