Hi, Jan.... I never had that specific problem but I'm sure it's probably connected to the carpal tunnel. My fingers were numb and tingling and I had to move them constantly to wake them up.... I'm sure that once you've had the surgery, all symptoms will be gone... I had open hand release on my right hand on Feb 19th, once the nerve block wore off two days later, my fingers were back to normal. My only problem now is swelling in my wrist at the incision point. Good luck with your surgery and keep us posted on how you're doing.........Linda

: I have moderate to severe cts in both hands- I am having surgery on my right hand on April 4, my left hand huts just as much. My left hand cannot make a fist, it hurts really badly. Does anyone else have this problem? I was not sure if it was a common problem with cts. Thank You
: This is a great board.
