Carpal Tunnel Brace suggestions?
For the last few months, I've been waking up with my fingers tingling, and my right hand goes numb if I play games before noon or so. I figured it was just me being out of shape, but a post here made me re-evaluate and think it was the first signs of carpal tunnel syndrome. As someone who has been playing video games since 6 and using computers even longer, well.. I don't want surgery or anything like that.
The first answer, of course, is to get a doctor's appointment. But I need to change GPs, and I don't know who to see about this.
In the meantime, I've heard braces can help. I picked up some from CVS this morning at random, and realized I didn't do any research or shopping around. I don't even know if they fit properly (though I think they do).
Does anyone have experience with wrist braces? Fully recognizing that I need to see a doctor and not self-diagnose, I was wondering:
1) Are there any brands or types of braces that work better?
2) How often do you wear them?
3) Should I return these, which are from some company named Futuro?
