    You can use anti inflamatory cream to reduce the swelling

    Like amod has said, using an anti inflammatory cream can help relieve some pain. You can try blackseed ointment and massage the wrist, arm and hand area twice a day to improve blood circulation. Blackseed also has anti inflammatory properties

    Try to correct activities that make CTS worse, just as incorrect typing on the PC

    If there is an underlying for CTS then treat the cause as this may result in having some relief. Other possible causes include hypothyroidism, obesity, menopause etc

    You can also get regular Vitamin B complex and B12 injections to stimulate the nerves

    As Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is associated with Cold & Moist qualities according to Tibb, it is important to increase Heat and Dryness in the body. This can be achieved by including more heating spices such as fresh garlic and ginger into your diet. These herbs also increases blood circulation. Also avoiding foods that increases cold and moistness in the body like dairy products will be helpful to re establish balance. Getting regular exercise is encouraged to promote heat and blood flow. Keep the hands and wrist warm at all times

    Some home remedies that can be used is boiling parsley in water and drinking this solution 3 times a day to help get alleviate water retention

    Capsicum found in cayenne pepper can also be applied topically as this stimulates the nerves and reduces pain

    You should also go for regular sessions of cupping, to promote blood flow, heat and remove toxin build up in the area

    Would you recommend the operation?

    In my opinion surgery is always the last resort, once you have tried everything. ultimately you need to assess the risks and benefits of surgery and make that decision for yourself
