I believe I am totally cured of carpal tunnel syndrome

I have this muscular pains as early as 1980's but the pain is tolerable I just apply efficascent oil or ask a local "hilot" or masseur who applies hot coconut oil during massage sessions. I avoid medicines as much as possible. In year 2000, I cant no longer endure the pain, I had to take Lodine or Alaxan as pain relievers believing it to be just arthritis. I felt terribly pain on my two hands, my limbs upwards towards my shoulders and neck! It was so terrible that made me sleepless, I cant lie on my back, have to sit towards ther night to lessen the pain. My work was so affected I cant work well, had work backlogs and got warnings from the president of the company because I submit my reports directly to him. So I went to the hospital and I was diagnosed to have CTS and arthritis on my neck. The doctor advised a steroid injection and two months professional theraphy, that is 3 sessions for two hours each in a week. During the sessions, I had to endure the candle or paraffin method, the massage machines in the cubicle using those oils I cant recall the names now, plus the pulling of my neck by that machine as if it would pull out your head. After two months, the doctor extended the theraphy by two weeks and made that final treatment that you wished you were never alive. It was too painful that I almost faint inspite of those injections to relieve the pain. I did not come back anymore in the hospital for the follow up check up. I just religiously took those prescriptions by heart. When my niece learned about it, she recommended bee stings. I am afraid of those Malaysian bees she is raising in her backyard, (she raised bees for her honeymaking business that gives her good income) but since the hospital and medicines cost me a fortune too, I obliged. Malaysian bees are giant. I had 6 bees stung my two hands and the back of my neck. During the first session, I did not have any allergy, it just swollen for several days but in the next, six months after, I felt dizzy so I immediately took Virlix, an anti allery. After six months I came back again. I believed I was really cured by that bees because after that first bee session, I never take any medicine. I sometimes have muscular pain but no CTS anymore. And the pains are tolerable, I dont have to take medicines, to my relief because medicines are expensive in Manila.

I had problems with my arms and wrists before. The doctor told me that if I don't get rid of overusing my hands, it will end up to a serious carpal tunnel syndrome. At first, I could still carry the pain and numbness in my hands, but later on I could not sleep anymore because of the excruciating pain I experienced. I was prescribed with medicines and was advised to refrain from overusing my hand. I stopped doing house chores specially ironing and washing of clothes. I hired a stay out person to do the job at home since I work daily from 7 to 5, with more on writing and computer typing. The pain and numbness stopped with medicine and hand rest.
