Amy, I've had it for years -- it was worst when I was working full time (8-10 hours a day on a computer), then it left me alone for a while when I had my kids. Whenever it flares up (usually from computer time when I'm working on a big freelance job :rollseyes: ) the most important and effective thing I do is to wear my braces
at night while I sleep. They take a little getting used to, but healing while you sleep is so important, rather than injuring yourself while you sleep, which most people do without even realizing it (sleeping with your wrists bent).
I was on anti-inflammatory meds for a while but didn't notice a big difference. I'll take ibuprofen if it's particularly bad (which is rare), but in general I think it's better to root out the problem than to simply mask the pain.
Hope you are feeling better soon! :D
