Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which is also referred to as median nerve compression, is a condition that causes weakness, numbness, or tingling sensation in your hand.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome typically happens due to pressure on your median nerve, which runs the entire length of your arm. It goes through a passage in your wrist called the carpal tunnel, and ends up in your end. The median nerve is responsible for movement and feeling of your thumb and all of your fingers with the exception of your pinky.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms:
• Tingling, burning, or itching in your palm and thumb, or your index and middle fingers.
• A bolting or “shock-like” feeling that makes its way into your fingers.
• Tingling that makes its way up your arm
