Hello I came to see you in April and have had carpal tunnel for years now, you gave me my second lot off injections in April, which were highly effective,until about end off August when tingling and numbness came back..now I’m back to wearing splints every night and sometimes whilst watching tv. Although my left arm feels worse and I’m getting the shooting stabbing pains up arm now my right arm is experiencing lots off problems...feels very weak and can’t grip things properly.and weakness in lifting with right hand.
Can I come back in to see you please before it gets much worse as I’m in a lot of pain now

Had my 3rd injections done mid/late nov....over did it a bit Christmas Eve and pain come back in left wrist for couple of days, but rested it and it went. Been wearing the splints on that wrist every night though as still numbness in nighttime.
Last few weeks my left wrist and arm have been experiencing pain and discomfort, and pain in the thumb muscle(if that’s possible)
Will let you know if it gets any worse

Hi
Yesterday I was out in the cold, my hand then wouldn’t warm up right into the night, and now is throbbing still from yesterday and the thumb muscle in particular is throbbing.

How cold did you let it get? It's certainly possble to suffer cold injury. JB

I try not to put precise appointment details on here unless it's very short notice indeed - no need to advertise to the world when you are going to be out of the house :-) - even when the user ID is fairly anonymous. If the appointment letter doesn;t turn up in a few days I'll email you (offline from the system at the moment so not that easy to look up quickly) JB

Thankyou, I got the oppointment through the post, numbness is a lot worse, sleep is bad again even though always have splints on, actually waking up with it swollen and very painful.
I’m getting pain all day long in my left arm, and worse if I do anything with that hand, and such pain in wrist and thumb even cutting food or unscrewing lid is painful, changing gear.

Hello
I’m really suffering again with pain in left wrist, numbness and feeling cold and aching all the time, even from driving just to supermarket etc
Been wearing my splints almost since last injections and my hands have been fine after last injections until just befor Christmas when started to hurt again.
I’ve been dropping things and feel like lost strength in my left wrist again, dropped a whole tray of roast potatoes out the oven the other day, and simple things like hoovering takes all the strength out of my hand.
Can I come and have them looked at again, think I’m on my 4th injections now so not sure how many I’m aloud to have.
Many thanks
Michelle

I'll send out a new appointment in the morning. There is no absolute limit on the number of injections in my clinc but such treatment is a bit experimental. We can discuss it when we see you. JB (Booked for 17th Feb)
