Although symptoms are different but basic problem seems to be same which led to carpal tunnel syndrome.Get your rheumatoid profile done. Take anti inflammatory medicines regularly & if the rheumatoid factor is strongly positive you should get a specific antibody test done & take remission therapy.

Your hands are not getting carpal tunnel syndrome again but the basic cause of pathology appears to be same. Your further treatment can be planned only after Knowing rheumatoid factor.With remission therapy in consultation with local Doctor recovery will be fast.
