Sharp pain in right lower thumb bone years after carpal tunnel surgery

by helen
(jersey city ,nj hudson )

I have had capal tunnel surgery on my right hand about 10 years ago and then had a cyst on the same wrist and had surgry on that also about 2 years after the capral tunnel

now i am getting a sharp shooting pain in my right thumb every so often even if i am not using my hand . the pain is very sharp and only in the lower part of my thumb bone .

I already had a cordizone shot by a orthopedic doctor but seems not to help at all .

I have been wearing a thumb brace but even with that i still get the pain . it is getting worse with the pain where sometimes i want to cry that is how bad the pain get .

I am trying to figure out what else can i do so i am not in so much pain .

Hi Helen.

I'm sorry to hear about all that.

I say it's high time to learn how to get your arm/hand/wrist in good working order again.

The simple answer, because I've already created a clearly outlined plan, is to get my The Carpal Tunnel Treatment That Works DVD and the Quick Start Companion ebook that comes with it.

I suggest that because even though you've had surgeries, you still have the original, underlying mechanism that causes all your symptoms in the first place.

Carpal Tunnel surgery does NOT get rid of the factors that caused your Carpal Tunnel Symptoms in the first place.

Maybe your symptoms aren't the same, but now you've developed new and similar

Why? Because you didn't REVERSE your Carpal Tunnel dynamic.

Tendonitis, which Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is, follows a very predictable pattern, and has very specific behavior. Surgery doesn't change that for very long, if at all.

You've got to open up muscle and connective tissue that is TOO TIGHT (like in your thumb pad now), get rid of the Process of Inflammation that is making things hurt more and more, and make sure you don't have nutritional deficiencies that cause tendonitis symptoms (Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Vitamin B6.)

Did you know that Inflammation Causes Vitamin B6 Deficiency? And did you know that B6 deficiency causes Carpal Tunnel symptoms?

Hopefully you didn't get surgery for B6 deficiency.......because that wouldn't have helped the CAUSE of the problem even a little bit.

More questions, more answers.
