Had the Carpal Tunnel Surgery now it's back...why is the wrist pain coming back?
I had the Carpal Tunnel surgery about 5 yrs ago....recently it's doing the same on both hands...and the tingling in both arms are driving me crazy.
Why did it come back and what do I do now?

Sorry to hear that that didn't work out.
Ultimately, the answer to your question of 'why did it come back' is due to the Pain Causing Dynamic
Things got tight and caused problems. The surgery (to some degree or other) opened things up but didn't reverse the CAUSE of your pain numbness and problem.
We like to think that surgery for Tendonitis
and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
fixes things, but it's not surprising that pain and/or numbness and/or tingling eventually comes back.
The -ecology- of the area didn't get fixed.
Plus it's likely that some of that tingling is coming from up at your neck, where front of the neck muscles step on the hose of the nerves.
What to do now?
Well, the complete answer is in my The Carpal Tunnel Treatment That Works
DVD and Quick Start Companion ebook.
1. Ice dip as described on the How To Reduce Inflammation
you ice dip a bunch and it doesn't help the tingling, that points to the neck.
2. Self massage. Get to it. Soften and lengthen all the muscle and connective tissue.
That may sound too short and simple, but if that's all you did, it's likely that that would do the trick.
Granted, nutrition may play a role, i.e. Inflammation Causes Vitamin B6 Deficiency
