  • Sorry to hear that, phone up the Drs Secretary and ask what it is about. I am sure you will get an answer. Failing that your GP may know as the Drs at the Hospitals write to your GP after a consultation updating them.

    There is a serious lack of communication in the NHS!! x

  • Hi Lynz can you tell me what test you had for Carpel Tunnel Syndrome please?

  • i cant remember what it was called now a ECsomthing test ,they have a hand held thing that has two little prongs in it ,she places the prongs in to certain spots and little electric shocks are given to you ,and she records it when i had it done she had to put the prongs digging into the inside of my arm where the elbow is and that did hurt cause that is one of my tender spots cause of my fibro .hope that helps xx

  • Oh dear! Lynz, i doo feel for you, you're right they don't like telling us what they are doing! Do you get tingling/numbness down the centre to outside edge of hands and electric like shocks? do they swell?

    /i have carpel tunnel no fun : (

    hugs poppy xxx

  • Hi lynz, oh dear you sound mad. :P

    Could it be that your tests came back that you have carpol tunnel? Its just i know they give you injections for carpol tunnel that helps the symptoms for a while. They offered them to me but i went for the op instead.

    I hope you have calmed down huni, hugs, kel xxxx

  • yes you are probably right arnt you ,ive read that somewhere ,but it would be nice to be told lol :)
