I have had MS more than 20 years. I lost my job and became bedridden for months. They even thought I might have had a stroke at first. But my blood pressure was below normal. I am grateful for the accuracy of the MRI test that confirmed it. I am now dealing with painful carpel tunnel in my wrists and would appreciate any suggestions for how to deal with it. I have been walking with a cane.

    Hi Muffin,

    Thanks for being here and sharing your question. I also have CTS, I find it very helpful to wear a wrist splint (available at any drugstore – elastic with a metal “spoon” under the palm, and affordable) to sleep in, and when I do things which tend to aggravate or compress the nerves. Please do check with your doctor to see if this would be appropriate for you. -All Best, Donna ( team)
