Shared experience with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Bromelain 8 years ago

I suffered severe carpal tunnel symptoms. Hands tingling, numbness, aching clear up my arm. Esp. at night and when I raised my arms above my shoulders. I got cortisone shots in my wrists 4 months ago but it did not help at all. I was informed that surgery was my only hope, and that without it I would eventually lose use of my hands. I am not a good "patient". I find it hard to be patient with negativity and I have always believed that God would not allow us to be stricken with anything that He has not already provided a cure for. We just have to figure out what it is! After some research into natural anti-inflammatories, because I knew I couldn't continue taking large doses of Ibuprofen any longer, I began taking Bromelain 2000GDU 500mg caps (2 caps 2x per day. After about a week I noticed I was sleeping all night without waking to the horrible numb dull pain. I am now about 4 weeks into this regimen and CTS just doesn't seem to be an issue anymore! I am going to continue with this therapy at this dose to see if it helps my problems with Plantar Fasciitus. I may decrease the dose after a while.
