Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendonitis

I have had carpal tunnel in both wrists for approx 15 years. 5 years ago I also developed fairly serious tendonitis, in my wrists; this was caused by rock climbing. This was so bad that I was unable to do normal activities such as driving cutting bread, etc. for about 9 months. I realize this if the opposite of what you’re asking.

However tendonitis causes the inflamed tendons & or sheaths to swell & as the gap which the tendons & nerves pass through in to the hand is so small there often is not enough room this causes pinching & squashing of the median nerve. Because of this tendonitis of the wrists if fairly likely to cause carpal tunnel syndrome. If you can overcome the tendonitis the carpal tunnel MAY go.
