Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Where does it hurt?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the feeling of pain, tingling, and other conditions in the hand and wrist due to pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve and several tendons run from the forearm to the hand through a small space in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls movement and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers. Carpal tunnel is a condition that can become progressively more painful over time. Fortunately proper treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome will relieve pain and numbness and allow the hand and wrist to function properly.

Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Pain from carpal tunnel syndrome will normally start as a slight ache in the wrist. Over time it may move into the forearm and areas of the palm and fingers. Symptoms of carpal tunnel are normally a feeling of tingling or numbness in the wrist, palm, and fingers. All the fingers will feel numbness except for the pinky. Many times numbness and tingling will be felt while holding items. Over time you may feel pain in the wrist moving up into the arm, elbow, and shoulder or down into the palm of the hand after use. The hand may also develop signs of weakness such as dropping objects or limited grip strength.
Causes of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome:
Carpal tunnel can develop for many reasons but mainly it is a result of the crowding, irritating, or compressing of the median nerve in the wrist’s carpal tunnel space. A wrist fracture can cause the wrist to narrow and apply pressure to the medial nerve. Constant use of the wrist such as using a keyboard or mouse for extended periods of time can spring up symptoms of carpal tunnel. The narrowing pressure on the medial nerve creates inflammation, swelling, eventually pinching of the nerve causing pain. There are also various diseases such as hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes that can help trigger carpal tunnel syndrome.
