Pain in palm of hand while gripping something??

Hi everyone
I was diagnosed with CTS a few months ago . I was having that tell tale sign of fingers going numb for months before but it wasn't every night. I also started to get tingly fingers and hands doing my job duties. Finally went to the dr and she said she suspects CTS. She sent me to get a nerve conduction test and that showed i had CTS in both hands , but more in my right. I was surprised I had it because I do not work a desk job. I work with adults that have developmental disabilities. But, I do lift weights and do crossfit, so I think it may be caused from that.

Anyways, I was wondering if you guys with CTS also feel a pain in the meaty part of your palm when gripping items? Maybe not so much as a pain, but cramping and tiredness? If I'm using a screw driver, I have to stop a few times . I had to brush off my car today and scrape it (Silly Canada, dumping snow already) and I had to take many breaks because my hands were cramping up.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your CTS needs mld surgery of carpal tunnel release and you will be alright. Symptoms will improve.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
