Butcher, not sure if this will pertain to you.
I had / have a similar problem. Also a PC person for a living, and assumed
carpal tunnel. Started a month or so after taking up golf.
Turned out, I had knocked two little bones out of place in my left hand. An
MD Dr didnt help much, so, against my usual better judgement, I went to a
Chiropractor. He was able to get the bones back in place. (one was between
my middle fingers, back of my hand, other was in my lower palm, just above
This injury was VERY painful. The first day it showed up, my left hand was
unusable. Couldnt even hold a cup of coffee or anything with it. There
wasn't any one hit I made golfing, that I can say, 'thats the one that did
It took a month or so, but finally the soreness went away. I played a little
, but backed off the range hitting for a while...
You might want to check into this, in your case.. My Dr. told me Carpal
Tunnel builds over a long period of time usually, and something like this,
all of a sudden, is more likely an injury. It takes a few weeks for the
swelling to go down after getting it fixed, so dont expect relief to be
immediate. But the feeling of something catching in your wrist does go away
pretty quickly. Stiffness and soreness lasts longer.
Again, not sure this pertains to you, but thought it 'might' be helpful...
Good luck to you.. That pain isnt fun..
