Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition caused by pressure on the median nerve, which runs the length of the arm, goes through a passage in the wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends in the hand. The median controls the movement and feeling of the thumb, and also the movement of the fingers except the pinky.

The carpal tunnel is narrowed as a result, usually from swelling. The result is usually numbness, tingling, or weakness in the hand. 

Often, people don’t know what brought on their carpal tunnel syndrome. But it can happen due to:

  • Repetitive motions, like typing or any motions of the wrist that you do over and over. This is especially true of actions when your hands are lower than your wrist.
  • Conditions like hypothyroidism, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes. 
  • Pregnancy

If you have carpal tunnel syndrome and don’t get it treated, its symptoms can last a long time, get worse, and can even go away and return. When your doctor diagnoses it early, it’s easier to treat.
