Doctors are smart.

When I originally went to my family doctor for my then suspected carpal tunnel syndrome, I asked if there were things I should stop doing with my right hand. He said nope. When I had my tests done I asked the Neurologist the same thing and he said nope, too. I thought this seemed strange since I had obviously done something to cause this condition. So after my official diagnosis, my doctor told me to wear a splint at night and try to avoid repititive motions with my hand. I still thought this seemed strange. I guess I am just the kind of person who wants to actually do something concrete to fix a problem, more than just slapping on a splint, anyway. But guess what? I wore the splint at night for the first time on Thursday and on Friday my hand hurt very little and only at the end of the day. Saturday I worked all day and my hand didn't hurt at all.

Conclusion: Maybe some doctors are stupid and some are smart.
