Hybrids and Carpal Tunnel
I started riding in May and have done 535 miles so far. I do most of my riding on a Trek FX 7.2. I'm riding everyday and getting my weekly total up to 100+ miles a week in the last couple of weeks. I've got the Ergon grips with the palm pad extensions, the biggest gel pad gloves I can find, adjusted the bars to sit slightly more upright than stock, but still I'm starting to see symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome in my right hand. It's staying a 24/7 slight pins and needles feeling in my thumb, index and middle fingers.
Most of the time I can't tell, but I play bass guitar and when I play I can feel it now. A slight tingle in there constantly. I skipped riding yesterday due to rain, but the sensation did not go away. It's really at the very early stages and is not causing me any problems right now other than an unusual sensation. I just want to make sure it doesn't get worse and would like to stop it all together if possible.
I'm wondering if others have run into this and found a solution. Thanks in advance.
