I had surgery for carpal tunnel on my right hand in Jan. All went and minimal pain occasionally now. I do have it in my left, but no severe.
Over the past week i have had severe pain in my elbows, more so my left. It is in the outside and it frustrating. I saw something on 'This Morning' about it being linked to carpal tunnel. Is this correct? What can I do for this>
Thanks in advance.


Sorry, All went well and pain not severe in left hand!


It is possible to get pain further up the arm from CTS but pain at the lateral side of the elbow is statistically more likely to be lateral epicondylitis, especially if it is tender to touch at the site. There are other rarer possibilities too so you should be guided by a doctor who can examine the arm. JB
