Carpal Tunnel

I think knitting is giving me carpal tunnel. My hands get all tingly when I knit, and now often when I'm not knitting. Has anyone had a similar experience and what have you done about it. I don't want to have to give up knitting.

    Ibuprophen. I knit for a living and have had that happen often. If that doesn't help, see the doc.

    I depends on which finger are getting tingly. I have a problem with my elbow that makes my middle finger, ring finger, and pinkie go tingly if I knti too much. The doctor prescribed me a wrist brace that I wear at night and it helps.

    I have had that happen but mostly if I knit early in the day (like after waking up). My hands go numb while sleeping so I don't know if it just me or the knitting.

    Wendy! We're neighbors! I'm from Marysville. (Found you on BE Rocket)

    I'm a new knitter, myself, but someone told me that can happen when you throw instead of pick. By the time I heard that, I'd already taught myself to throw and I felt really comfortable with that. I don't know how much truth there is to that, though, since so many people knit that way.

    I'll be back. Like your blog. :)
