I had the operation on my right wrist seven years ago. Now my left wrist is
giving me trouble i.e., pain at night, numbness in the thumb and index
finger, and a tendency to things). When I went to a physiatrist for an EMG,
he advised me to take 50mg of Vitamin B6 daily and wear a wrist splint
throughout the night. I haven't been taking B6 long enough to notice any
