Tingling and Pain in Wrist, due to Carpal Tunnel.

I came to NHS with the hopes of getting some relief from the tingling and pain in my right wrist and hand from Carpal Tunnel. I was also suffering from chronic headaches (6-8 a month). The headaches would come in clusters, 2-3 days in a row. It appeared that the preventative medication I was on for the headaches was aggravating the tingling of my right hand. As the medication for the headaches lessened the amount of headaches I was having, the tingling in my hand got worse and more painful. I had tingling in my hand most of the day- writing, pushing a shopping cart, even when doing nothing with my hand.

While working with NHS, the tingling and pain in my right hand has almost disappeared. It only happens occasionally now and the severity is gone. My headaches are down to 1-2 a month. With my Doctor’s approval, I am starting to wean myself off of the preventative medication. The goal is to never need the medication again.

I have also for years tried to eat healthier and lose weight, but the weight wasn’t coming off. In working with NHS, I learned that the “healthier” food I was eating still wasn’t healthy. With their help, I have changed what I eat and drink. As I’ve progressed, cravings for “unhealthy” foods have disappeared. Without really trying, the weight started coming off. I have lost almost 20 pounds in a short amount of time. Another benefit I have noticed is in the past, the first couple of days during my menstrual cycle were usually painful. With NHS I now have a healthy alternative to Advil and the pain is greatly diminished!
