tiny needles and wrist pain

I guess I have worn out my right wrist with this tiny knitting and
going to let it go a day before returning. I have knit on these size 2
every day for months and I think it has actually made my wrist sore
inside. Like carpal tunnel feeling. Anyone else have this happen? I
never had trouble before and even do small needlework a lot.barbie

I have had carpal tunnel, but I got it from using a computer, not from knitting. I can say from experience that it is a good idea to begin wearing a wrist brace as soon as you notice symptoms. I was told to wear it when I sleep and whenever I'm using the computer. I kept the brace and whenever I see the least sign of symptoms, I immediately begin using it again. Now I rarely have problems, and, best of all, I've avoided surgery.
It's best to see your doctor to get a good diagnosis and the most suitable type of brace.

Barbara I totally forgot. I have one of these fabric braces from an injury when we painted a house once. Does yours go up by your elbow? I dug it out and likely the combo of computer/knitting did this. I am not knitting for a week but typing right now is likely the culprit! I am quilting on a machine this week and reading instead. I was knitting likely too many hours a day more than usual. I have to get the knitting book back to the owner. Now I am just going to go Zerox the page that is left and do it when my arm recovers . I totally forgot I had trouble with this arm once until you reminded me !!!! Thank you.

No, mine just goes down to the tops of my fingers and up few inches above my wrist. It is fabric, but has a couple of metal splints imbedded that help to keep the wrist rigid. I got it through my doctor's office. Another time a different doctor told me to buy one in the drugstore, giving me the exact name of the kind to get. However, the first one was much better; more comfortable to wear and it immobilized my thumb better.
