Rest,.. is the best treatment ever. Ice? No.. You feel the symptoms because the nerve is already compressed. So the treatment should be to take the pressure off that median nerve. Wear a brace during sleep keeping the hands in a neutral position. Choose a hand splint that supports on the dorsal side of the hand. You can also do some modifications with item frequently used such as the keyboard or mouse pad, there are a lot of ergonomically designed available now, if not, place something that supports the ball of the hand while typing to decrease wrist extension causing compression on the median nerve.
1. Is an expensive mouse pad worth it over a cheap one?
I have commented on my solution to the mousepad problem elsewhere on Quora.I haven't used a conventional mousepad in ages.Instead I use a cutting board, found in the housewares department of Wally, etc. They are durable, easy to clean, and provide a consistent surface. And they cost $10 to $20 depending on size.I don't know how any color other than white would work, but it is the most common anyway. Also, I only recommend them for laser type mice, not the older roller style. They may be too slick for the roller to grip.And if you decide you don't want to use it as a mousepad after purchase, it is great for chopping food, what it was designed to do anyway. Is an expensive mouse pad worth it over a cheap one?
2. how do you clean the dust and dirt out of a mouse pad?
there is specific dust remover mostly made for the keyboard...its like a can with air in it, and it has like a really skinny straw on the tip its called 3M Dust Remover...u can find it anywhere maybe walmart, staples. ...and if u do not feel like going to the store to buy it then just use Q-tips
3. Double tap or single tap on mouse pad synaptics 22.214.171.124 on windows 10 not working
The following solution works on my HP Pavilion laptop.As we know, Windows 10 automatically updates, in this case installing the Synaptics driver version 126.96.36.199, which keeps resetting certain settings. Download and install the Synaptics driver version "188.8.131.52 Rev: A Pass: 14" released by HP (07/08/2015).After installing the driver (no need to uninstall the previous drivers), reboot, set your settings, and they will no longer be reset in future reboots. However, Windows will still want to install the problematic version of the driver. That can be stopped with a Group Policy tweak:Run gpedit.msc, Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Device Installation, Device Installation Restrictions, and double-click "Prevent installation of devices that match any of these device IDs" or "Prevent installation of devices not described by other policy settings". Select Enabled and perform the necessary changes as detailed in this MSDN article.Once a fixed driver is distributed through Windows Update, you can remove the restriction by setting that policy to Not Configured

8. Windows 7 after Reformatting having popping noises after shutting down and mouse pad issues (laptop). Help?
maybe you need to find a new driver for the sound card or the pad click start then right click my computer and click on manage it wil bring up the management console. click on devices then look to see if anything has a yellow triangle and a exclamation point if it does right click on it and click reinstall driver or search for a new driver. it will give you a choice of using the web or getting it from a disk. i would search the internet. it will find the right driver for it and install it. if it's not a driver problem then it's mechanical like a loose wire or plug. the popping noises indicates that's the case but that would not effect the volume bar so try the drivers and hopefully that will fix it. good luck.
