The Latest On Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
“Do I Have Carpal Syndrome?”
You’re working diligently at your desk and no matter how hard to try to divert your attention, the tingling and numbness in your hand and wrist you’ve had for months now simply won’t disappear. Thinking it may just be signs of fatigue and soreness from use, you suddenly experience sharp, shooting pains pierce from your hand, through your wrist, and up your arm. If this is true for you, you may be experiencing a painful and progressively worsening condition caused by the compression of the median nerve in your wrist called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
What are the Symptoms?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome may cause:
- Numbness and tingling of fingers
- Clumsiness and weak pinch or grip
- Aching and pain in your hand or forearm that radiates to your shoulder or neck
- Stiffness in your fingers upon waking up
