I have carpal tunnel syndrome from my one stint as a basket weaver at Longaberger Basket Co. Once I got out of the high repetition environment the symptoms subsided. It took almost 12mo to get better. I still get numbness if I drive more than 1hr at a time. I've been known to be driving down the road shaking my hands trying to get the numbness to go away!
