The steroid injections can temporarily help relieve painful symptoms caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. They help reduce tendon swelling and ease pressure on the nerve. Most patients say the level of pain of the carpal tunnel injections would be comparable to the pinch of the needle when drawing blood.
Discomfort from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome should subside within one to three days after the injections, but how long it will last tends to vary depending on the complexity of the syndrome; many patients say they have not experienced any pain in years!
