    Steroids and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome???

    Ok, I had some nerve test done to check for CTS and one of the questions I was asked was "Do I use a lot of steroids?". I didn't consider what I had done to be alot so I said no. What is the link between using and CTS?

    And do you think that I could have gotten CTS from working out for 1.5 years?

    HGH I could see, gear not really seeing the link there for sure unless he was just going off of strength.

    Generally CTS comes from friction, usually when tendons are so large that they rub against the tunnel (wrist) when being used.

    I could see where winstrol might cause, or aggravate CTS.
