If you fell numbness, pain, weakness or tingling in your hand then you probably have carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The University of Maryland Medical Center, says that CTS is caused by a nerve in the wrist that is strained.
Tissues around the median nerve of the hand can swell and press the nerve causing numbness, pain, weakness or tingling.If not treated, the nerve insulation can even cause a permanent damage.
When the symptoms appear in order to avoid irreversible damage and additional discomfort you must treat this condition.Your doctor will most probably recommend you to wear a splint and maybe to receive corticosteroid injections.
You can also try some home remedies that you can relieve your pain and discomfort.Here they are:
Apply an ice packed in a thin towel and put it onto your wrists let it sit for 10 minutes and repeat on each hour until the pain disappear. It will reduce the pain and soothe inflammation.
Heat might work on you better than to ice.,so just soak your wrists and hands in hot or warm water for 12- 15 minutes before bed. I must add that with this method you won’t wake up with pain in the middle of the night.
Are packed with omega-3 fatty acids so if you have CTS symptoms, eat a handful of walnuts every day with a yogurt or in salads.
Vitamin B6 is included in more than 100 enzyme reactions and some of them are related to relieving CTS symptoms. You can find vitamin B6 in potatoes and in many fruits, fish and poultry.
Turmeric is known as most wanted spice in Ayurvedic medicine. It has very strong anti-inflammatory agent and can reduce inflammation and pain.
Pineapple has c powerful enzyme bromelain which can break down the inflammatory proteins and lower the pain from CTS.
7. Whole grains.
Magnesium in green vegetables, legumes and whole grains so eat lots of foods with magnesium or take magnesium supplement.
8. Flaxseed oil.
Flax-seed oil is rich with omega 3 fatty acids so drink one tablespoon of flax-seed oil mixed in with your morning drink.
If you have CTS you must add walnuts, pineapple, flax-seed oil and turmeric in your everyday diet.
