    Carpal tunnel can develop from chemical exposures too, although
    that is not recognized by traditional doctors. They only
    recognize repetative movements as the cause. I didn't do
    repetatve work! I developed bilateral carpal tunnel from
    exposures at work in a chemical factory. I had the surgeries
    but the problems came back when I returned to work. Later I was
    diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities.
