Wearing a specialised wrist splint for carpal tunnel syndrome and pain medications can help. It is also important to improve the ergonomics of your workspace. For example, using gel wrist pads to keep your wrists in neutral alignment when typing on a keyboard or to switch from using a laptop to a desktop computer with the appropriate monitor and keyboard height.
If you experience sudden onset of weakness, loss of hand grip or hand coordination, or hand numbness along with severe neck pain or shooting arm pain, might suggest a neurological problem other than carpal tunnel syndrome and should be evaluated immediately.
