I have a referral to a hand specialist. I saw him back in June and had a cortisone injection into my left wrist for pain I was having then. I may elect to get another injection, which will hopefully hold me over until the summer when I'm off from work during our break and maybe then I can have surgery.
The funny thing is, I had a nerve conduction study done last January, and my left hand was fine with no trace of carpal tunnel at that time. The doctor I saw today and I are both baffled as to how my left hand progressed to severe carpal tunnel syndrome in a year, especially since I'm right handed.
