Reply Carpel Tunnel and piping.

mallorymaid ...

I have carpel tunnel in my left hand (which is my dominant hand) that is causing some numbness in two of my fingers, right now i am taking ibuprofen 4 times daily to help with the inflammation, I also have a brace for my hand that i wear when sleeping to keep my wrist/hand from relaxing and bending. I also work in a bakery as well as doing my own baking and decorating at home, so to help i don’t over fill my bags, i only have what i can hold in the palm of my hand (if that makes sense), at home my husband will kneed the fondant and gumpaste for me if needed, i am also (without much success) trying to train myself to pipe with my right hand, very scary results with my piping but hopefully over time with practice it will get better and i can relieve my left hand when needed. If there isn’t any improvement with the carpel tunnel my Doctor and I will be looking into corrective surgery.
