I am suffering from carpel tunnel syndrome. Left hand feel weakness at time of working. Please help.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the hand and wrist. It happens when there is increased pressure within the wrist on a nerve called the median nerve. This nerve provides sensation to the thumb, index, and middle fingers, and to half of the ring finger. Let's have a detailed discussion to ensure proper treatment.

Treat carpal tunnel syndrome as early as possible after symptoms start. Take more frequent breaks to rest your hands. Avoiding activities that worsen symptoms and applying cold packs to reduce swelling also may help. Other treatment options include wrist splinting, medications and surgery. Splinting and other conservative treatments are more likely to help if you've had only mild to moderate symptoms for less than 10 months. Lifestyle and home remedies these steps may provide temporary symptom relief: •take short breaks from repetitive activities involving the use of your hands. •lose weight if you are overweight or obese. •rotate your wrists and stretch your palms and fingers. •take a pain reliever, such as aspirin, ibuprofen (advil, motrin ib, others) or naproxen sodium (aleve). •wear a snug, not tight, wrist splint at night. You can find these over-the-counter at most drugstores or pharmacies. •avoid sleeping on your hands. If pain, numbness or weakness recurs and persists, see your doctor. Alternative medicine integrate alternative therapies into your treatment plan to help you cope with carpal tunnel syndrome. You may have to experiment to find a treatment that works for you. Always check with your doctor before trying any complementary or alternative treatment. •yoga. Yoga postures designed for strengthening, stretching and balancing the upper body and joints may help reduce pain and improve grip strength. •hand therapy. Early research suggests that certain physical and occupational hand therapy techniques may reduce symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. •ultrasound therapy. High-intensity ultrasound can be used to raise the temperature of a targeted area of body tissue to reduce pain and promote healing. Research shows inconsistent results with this therapy, but a course of ultrasound therapy over several weeks may help reduce symptoms.

For the right thumb pain it might be due to carpal tunnel syndrome, where the pain will be felt in the wrist. You can do hot water fermentation/ wax therapy for shoulder and for the wrist pain (hand pain) you can do ice therapy which will reduce the pain. A burning sensation is a particular type of pain distinct from dull, stabbing, or aching pains. A burning kind of pain is often related to nerves, but there are many other potential causes. Injuries, natural wear and tear, infections, and autoimmune disorders all have the potential to cause nerve damage and pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome also causes pain and burning that travels up your arm.

I have a likely case of carpel tunnel; my hands get numb at night and I sometimes awake with pain in fingers and the palm, especially below the knuckles area. Please suggest which medical specialist I should consult with, will it require mri or xray, and is it treatable with medicine!

Tingling, burning sensation in hand which occurs due to compression of median nerve in the wrist area. It occurs in women especially due to pregnancy, hypothyroidism, diabetes, etc. And in men due to improper position of the wrist during working on computers.
