Carpal Tunnel? - May 30th 2015, 04:45 AM

So...I have mild carpal tunnel in my left hand/arm. I'm left handed, I do hair, and I'm 18. I know exercises and things I can do to help relieve the pain. I was just wondering if anybody else has this or similar problems. I feel so alone

it's just a spark, but it's enough to keep me going. and when it's dark out, no one's around, it keeps glowing.

the truth hurts but it hasn't stung enough to stop me.

see, you're just wasted and thinking 'bout the past again, darling, you'll be okay.

You are altogether beautiful, my darling, beautiful in every way. - song of songs 4:7

Re: Carpal Tunnel? - June 1st 2015, 10:55 AM

You are not alone my dear. I know how you feel though I sometimes feel very alone when it comes to carpal tunnel, I used to feel that way with neurofibromatosis(nf for short) but I've made a lot of friends rough a week long summer camp for kids/teens who have neurofibromatosis that I attended in Utah for several years in a row, the last time I went was 2007, but I'm still friends with most of the girls and boys I met there, I've also made many adult friends and belong to many Facebook groups for neurofibromatosis , one lady who has nf and has a daughter who has nf as well I'm really close with her and her daughter her daughter who I see as my little sister and I call the lady my nf momma. I have carpal tunnel in my right wrist, but like I mentioned I have neurofibromatosis and I've got tumors in my arms and wrists and when I'm on my iPad mini,kindle fire or iPhone too much my carpal tunnel flares up and when the weather changes a lot of my body hurts especially when it's cold but winter is my favorite season. I know how it feels to feel like your the only one in the universe with a problem, but making friends and joining those support group has helped me a lot, I can go on the groups and as for advice on anything, they can help me with issues and remedies for things caused by nf they can answer questions that my other friends who do not have nf can't answer. Maybe start a carpal tunnel support group on here or maybe there's one on Facebook. Just a suggestion. If you ever want to talk feel free to PM me.

I was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis, it causes tumors to grow in my body on nerves,my spine,and under my skin. I have a tumor in the thalamus region of my brain. I also have heartburn,hypothyroidism and secondary adrenal insufficiency these are under control with medication.
I also have hip dysplasia and scoliosis.
