    Is their anyone here that have experience any sudden pain in the wrist resulting from usage of hand on a daily basis especially sautéing?

    Yeah...called carpal tunnel syndrome but you already know that.

    A short outpatient surgery will fix it.

    That will be $250.

    Surely a god can afford that.

    Ouch.

    That didn't come out like I meant it to.

    Yes CT is caused by repetitive motion of the wrist.

    Kneading bread and bartending and flipping saute pans will all cause the build up of tissue and inflammation.

    That will bring the symptoms like pain and numbness and weakness.

    A wrist brace will help but eventually you will need to have a surgical procedure (called a release) or tempt permanent damage.

    Merry Christmas...
