first use of splints


Having received diagnosis for CTS and now using splints at night I have definately felt an improvement in the comfort they provide to help get a good nights sleep! However I still have all the same symptons as before when they are off in the day ie numbness in the left 3 fingers and tingling/numbness in both. Also pain down the inside of the thumbs. I intend to book up steroid injection this week.


I think that is about what I would expect for quite a severe CTS - some relief of night-time symptoms but by no means a cure. I think that is a benefit worth having for such an inexpensive, safe and quick intervention though. JB
