Not CTS?



Have completed questionnaire and dismayed at the result which shows a very low chance of CTS.
If not CTS what could be causing me such discomfort?
Do you think I have under-scored the pain severity in the questionnaire?


It llooks as though it is mostly the timing and distribution of the symptoms which is pulling the probability of CTS down. It's not impossible that you have CTS but you would be more likely to get some useful help by attending a general hand clinic rather than one that specialises only in CTS - my clinic doesn't treat anything else but CTS. The severity of the problem is a slightly different issue to what it is. Symptoms from other hand problems such as small joint arthritis, tendonitis, gout etc can be just as bad, if not worse, than CTS. JB
