My gp thought I had CTS, sent me to a specialist physiotherapist who thought i had CTS who sent me for nerve conduction tests with a senior nurse who told me I had mild CTS. Today I went to the Orthopedic dept where I was told by a doc that my conduction tests had been reviewed by a pyhsiologist (sp) who had never spoken to me let alone examined me and he decided I didn't have CTS! When I asked what was causing all the pain and weakness in my hands he said he didn't know, that it could be tendonitis, to wear a fuller wrist splint and rest! I have neuropathy amongst many other conditions so my nerves are weird anyway. I'm just so upset as I thought that I had a condition that could be cured unlike all my other diagnoses that are chronic and incurable. Sorry for the long rant, but any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
