I’ve been having pain in my wrists. Do I have carpal tunnel or tendonitis The symptoms of both are similar. Both disorders can cause burning in the wrists, numbness and pain. The pain gets worse at night. That’s common for both disorders. That doesn’t tell me. You’re more likely to get stiffness and cramping with tendonitis. The primary distinction is the location of the pain. It seems like the whole hand is numb, while the whole wrist hurts. If the pain is on the inside of the wrist, it is carpal tunnel syndrome. If on the outside,.
Then it is tendonitis. How did I get this Carpal tunnel syndrome is a repetitive stress injury. Tendonitis occurs when the wrists in the tendon are inflamed. I don’t get how using my hands would cause everything from tingling to pain that wakes me up. Carpal tunnel syndrome or CTS causes pain, numbness, weakness and tingling. That is because the nerve in the carpal tunnel is compressed. Is it possible to have both Carpal tunnel syndrome and tendonitis can be caused by an injury. Especially when the tendons are strained while the carpal tunnel swells.
I haven’t had an injury. Tendonitis can cause CTS. If the tendons swell enough, it can put pressure on the nerve in the carpal tunnel. How do I know if it is carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis or something else If I’ve strained something or injured it, how can I be sure Flex your hand and turn it to a ninety degree angle to your arm. If it suddenly starts hurting, you have tendonitis or CTS. Ah, that hurts! What do I do Minimize use of it. Take pain relievers, and if necessary, immobilize the wrist.
