I do not think that carpel tunnel syndrome can occur suddenly. I would like to suggest you to wait till EMG report comes then we can decide treatment accordingly. Till you get that report i would suggest you to take pregabalin and methylcobal tablet for pain relief. Avoid keeping your hand in sameposition for long time.
