Steroid injections

I had steroid injections in both wrists on 30th May 19, 10 minutes after the injection I had severe pain in my left thumb that lasted about 6hours, since then I have had minimal symptoms in either hands, so far so good.

That's a curiously localised pain in the thumb but at least it didn't last long. I'm glad to hear that the CTS symptoms have improved. We will add a comment to the records. Just contact us directly if and when it goes off again. JB

I have had CTS symptoms again for around 6 weeks now, I was hoping to wait until lockdown was over but am finding the pain too much to cope with, I am wearing the splints most of the time except when I am working and they are not providing any relief, is it possible to get another steroid injection ?

I think we can do those for you tomorrow if you notice this message in time and can meet a few conditions. You would have to be able to make it to the department at about 1:00pm and there is a set of instructions HERE - covering the precautions we are taking during the epidemic. I'll put it in the diary for tomorrow in case you do see this and can make it - if not I can always take the booking off again. If we miss tomorrow we probably can't do anything until week beginning 4th May. JB

Good morning Dr Bland,
I hope you are keeping well. It's been a long while since I Ave needed help with my carpal tunnel, but I am experiencing severe numbness which is keeping me awake at night. I am contacting you to ask if there is any possibility of having an injection? I am sure, due to the virus that there are strict rules at your department, which I will adhere to.

I await your response.

Kind regards
Louise Wynne

It should be possible in the week beginning 4th May if Emma remains well. Check with me towards the end of next week.JB
