Elevation and change of position may sound lame, but it does help. If your fingers are going numb repeatedly, you might need to consult an orthopedic doctor who can do an EMG/nerve conduction tests to evaluate the degree of nerve involvement and will advise possible treatment including physical therapy and surgery.

Unless you've had some terrible accident, surgery is NEVER needed for CTS. It's a soft tissue problem and soft tissues can be released and stretched. They don't need to be cut.
