Hi. I'm newly diagnosed Type 2 and am having awful problems with carpal tunnel pain. Anybody have any soothing remedies? I'm doing exercises I found online and wearing braces on both hands/wrists. The pain is better . . . . but. Ugh.

I have numbness and tingling in my hands when I use them for a long time, like when I hold my cell phone when talking to my sweetie Valentine Lady. I can trade off hands sometimes but there are other times, like when I have 2 -16 ga needles in my left arm when on dialysis, Then I have to put the phone down and wiggle my fingers a bit to be able to continue talking.

I have not experienced the pain you and Heidi experience. I have had the similar kind of experience when I was riding my bicycle long distances when I was 19. I'd find I'd be squeezing on my handlebars too hard and need to ease up a little and wiggle my fingers, No real pain, just discomfort and tingling like my hand had "gone to sleep".

God's best to you
