What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME is caused by pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. People who use their hands and wrists repeatedly in the same way (for example, illustrators, carpenters, and assembly-line workers) tend to develop carpal tunnel syndrome. Pressure on the nerve may also be caused by a fracture or other injury, which may cause inflammation and swelling. In addition, pressure may be caused by inflammation and swelling associated with arthritis, diabetes, and hypothyroidism. Carpal tunnel syndrome can also occur during pregnancy.

Symptoms

  • Pain, numbness, or tingling in your hand and wrist, especially in the thumb a and index and middle fingers, and occasionally in the upper arm
  • Increased pain with increased use of your hand
  • Increased pain at night
  • Weak grip and tendency to drop objects held in the hand
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Muscle deterioration especially in the thumb (in later stages)
