I am looking for help? I have had 4 Carpal tunnel surgeries. I have been dealing with this for over 5 years. The Pain is worse but what do I do when the pain scale only goes to 10? anyway, I was told that I need to eat more red meat to help improve nerve growth? Why would I want the nerves to grow back in my hand? This pain is so bad, scare tissue is so bad. I am on no medications, no therapy, besides my depression, which now I have or feel I have under control. I have one choice for a hospital, because on insurance right now. Dose anyone know of anything that can help reduce this pain. Medications? I have been on so many? Is there a procedure out there that I have not heard of. I am looking for anything? this pain interferes with everything. my strength I am loosing. I am very desperate. Thanks!
You can consult a doctor about administering a local injection of corticosteroid and anesthetic as a temporary solution to carpal tunnel pain. Surgical intervention may be the next treatment, but the effects would have been better if the intervention was done earlier.
