About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
What is carpal tunnel syndrome? To understand what carpal tunnel syndrome is, you first need to know about the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is the narrow passage in the wrist through which the nerves, tendons, ligaments and blood vessels pass. Sometimes the nerve that runs though the carpal tunnel is compressed at the wrist joint due to the buildup of pressure on the median nerve and tendons - this is carpal tunnel syndrome. It can be very painful and uncomfortable, affecting every part of your life, from driving to grocery shopping to typing on the computer!
What causes carpal tunnel syndrome? There are several different factors involved. Those with hormonal problems and other medical conditions like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, etc. are more likely to get carpal tunnel syndrome. The same goes for those who have a cyst or tumor in the hand or forearm and people who have had serious fractures or sprains in the past.
Carpal Tunnel Symptoms
Common carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms include:
- Numbness or pain in your hand, wrist or forearm (sometimes enough to wake you up during the night)
- Occasional tingling in your hand
- Aching pain in your forearm
- Pain that gets worse when you are gripping something or flexing your wrist
- Stiffness in your fingers when you get up in the morning
Most of the time, pain or numbness from carpal tunnel syndrome will be felt in the wrist, hand and forearm, but you may also feel pain in your shoulder. If you think you're experiencing any carpal tunnel symptoms, contact us today!
