De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

Hi all, I have Tenosynotivis in my left wrist among other things wrong. I got some shots on Tuesday from my pain management Doctor. Helped a little. I have been diagnosed in the past with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome, worse on the left side. I also have cervical stenosis and degenerative arthritis there. What really helps and are they all related? Thanks in advance.

Hi @jeanmnyc, You'll notice that I moved your message to this existing discussion about De Quervain's tenosynovitis. I did this so you can connect with @robinfreitas1967 and @2011panc and see what helped them.

You ask some great questions about the possible relationship to carpal tunnel, and possibly even cervical stenosis and degenerative arthritis. I'd like to bring @dawn_giacabazi and @sueinmn as they may have some thoughts about that.

According to Mayo Clinic's info https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/de-quervains-tenosynovitis/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20371337, treatment for de Quervain's tenosynovitis is aimed at reducing inflammation, preserving movement in the thumb and preventing recurrence. Are you keeping your thumb immobilized and applying ice?
