I last had an injection to my wrist in May. This was very successful at the time but within the last 2 to 3 weeks the problem has returned to my left hand only. This has given me severe numbness and pain that is keeping me awake at night. I would be grateful if I could have another injection as soon as possible.

We can probably do that this week - could you make Monday? JB

There's a space at 4:00pm this afternoon, nothing earlier I'm afraid. JB

OK See you then - the clinic has become a bit clogged with an extra urgent in-patient too so there may be a bit of hanging about but we'll get it all in somehow. JB

Hi Mr Bland , As update of symtems of carpel-tunnel injections as requested I am pleased to report that I have had no adverse effect since have the injection although last week whilst opening the door to my van with my index and middle fingers with door frozen I appear to have torn or strain something in my wrist that resulted in causing bruising to the inside of my wrist while this is now improving it still giving me problems and l hope it is nothing to do with carpel-tunnel problem that I have. Many thanks

That does superficially sound like overstretching something. Aa long as all the fingers are moving OK I would not be too concerned. JB

Thanks for your reply it is improving daily.

Thank you for the update. Since the injection do you feel that the symptoms in your left hand are worse, the same, slightly better, much better or cured? EK

Much better thanks.

Dear Dr Bland I wonder if it's possible that I could come for another injection. The pain has returned mainly in my right hand and is keeping awake most nights. I look forward to hearing from you. Steve Griggs

We can probably do something in the coming week. Emma should see this on Monday and be able to get in touch. JB

Dear Dr Bland I have recently had an injection to my right hand which is fine now but I'm having problems with my left hand. Would it be possible to come along for an injection for the left hand please ?

I'll have a look at the records tomorrow and post here again. It's a bit late to fire up the computers tonight but probably yes. JB

We could re-inject the left but it's getting to be quite a while since we last tested them so ideally I would like to repeat the NCS too. When could you make it into the department? JB

Thanks very much I could be available to attend Thursday or Friday

I'll try to fit you in as an extra on Thursday then. Details to follow tomorrow. JB

First thing in the morning Thursday (17th) if you can make that. I'll test you myself and I usually manage to get in about 8:30am so if we can do that before the main clinic list starts at 9:00 that would be good. JB

As requested my update for the injection in my right hand 6 weeks ago. Total success and no reaction at all. You may recall that I had an injection in my left hand for a fourth time last Thursday. It has worked well but the tip of my left thumb has a slight numbness although not affecting me.

Thanks for the follow-up - glad it's under control at present. As usual, just get in touch when there are problems. JB
