  • I type 8 to 10 hours a day as a transcriptionist.  I have had carpal tunnel and tenosynovitis.  I use Voltaren cream, it is available without a prescription. I rub it into my wrists when I feel soreness and it lasts several hours. If you need a stronger one than the one the drug store sells, you can get a prescription for a stronger one from your doctor and they mix it up at the pharmacy.  Works great, not systemically absorbed so no ulcer worries with the oral versions of NSAIDs.

  • I deal with it by being ambidexterous. I now use both hands for mouse and alternate between them when I am tired.

  • Carpal tunnel releases done on both wrists totally eliminated all wrist pain and enabled me to complete my ARCT in Piano - Solo Performance.  Although surgery is a scary thing, there is minimal recuperation time (about 10 days). I had the surgery done almost 20 years ago and haven't had a moment of pain since and (obviously) no reduction in the use of my hands.
