    Yes I have Carpal Tunnel syndrome. I am a T2 with excellent control.
    Had my left hand done about 4 years ago, and healed with no problems or bad after effects.
    Now my right hand has the same symptoms as my left did, and just had a EMG done on it. Will probably have corrective surgery done also.

    I know how I got carpal tunnel. For 10+ years I was a data entry and word processing operator.

    Carpal Tunnel can also reoccur after the surgery. I had the surgery 20 years ago and it has returned in one hand. I was warned at the time by the surgeon that it could come back in the future. Not real common, but it does sometimes.

    Type 1 for 16 years with decent (not great) control and my ONLY complication as far as I know is the mildest of mild case of carpal tunnel in my right hand. I had a whole-body nerve test done and it was such a relief to know this was the only problem.

    Anyway to treat it I wear wrist braces at night (on both hands) and it’s great because they were easy to adapt to and my hands don’t fall asleep in the middle of the night anymore – a great choice for me :) This is the brand I use:

    During the years of my high blood sugars as a teenager, I had carpel tunnel. The pain lessened when I lowered my blood sugars but it still hurt to type all the time. Then I went on a long bike ride (20-some miles) and the day afterwards noticed no pain. The pain never returned until I had my twins and was caring for them, holding them for most of the day. A year ago I started working out with a kettle bell and the pain disappeared again. I haven’t had any pain whatsoever since. It’s like working out the muscles in the wrist help. At least it helps me :)

    Hi again: about 20 years ago I noticed tingling when washing hair / in the shower. Rather strange. Of course the initial Dx was diabetic neuropathy – I persisted – a referal to neurologist finally made Carpal Tunnel Synd. the problem – suggested ‘conservative’approach – splints at night. They still work. The problem for me was identified as repeatedly tearing open IV bags! Still have good fine motor function of all fingers – now am 59+ years Type1! [retired!]

    Hey Michael – I feel for u. I am T1 30 years, just had my 4th trigger release surgery last week (including one ro de Quervain’s) and have another trigger finger I’m leaving alone for now. Oodles of cortisone injections in my fingers. Frozen shoulder – got that. I probably have carpal tunnel but it’s not terrible. sigh. other than all that, the Big Complications have so far stayed away. (p.s. do u work full-time?)

    I have had type 2 for 23 years and for the most part have not had sugars in good ontrol. However, have been under control for the past 4 years. I have had serious complications including peripheral nueropathy and retinopathy. Carpal Tunnel started 14 years ago and had some pain and numbness. Used splints for several years. Then had CT surgery on both wrists and trigger realease on 2 fingers 2 years ago. Relief was almost immediate! But now it has returned in the ulner nerve. Going through physical therapy and am starting to get relief. Hope this might help someone out there.

    I’ve suffered carpal tunnel pains for years – in addition to ganglion cysts in my wrists!
    I hadn’t found any peace until I was recommended to try aPollo Day & Night Wrist Band systems.
    I have used the system for months and began telling my friends and coworkers; two of my coworkers now wear the bands and we all feel relief from our day to day computer usage, which used to be unbearable, and now have the ability to do more!
    I’d like to recommend this system to you – let everyone know how amazing it is to be freed of the pains and aches of carpal tunnel syndrome!
