Health Conditions: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
WHAT IT IS
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a persistent tingling and numbness in the hand(s) caused by a pinched median nerve in your wrist. At its worst, it can feel like you have a thousand pins and needles in our hand. Because this is the digital age and we do nearly everything, especially our jobs, with a computer, it can be extremely debilitating to both your concentration and work productivity. Carpal tunnel syndrome tends to be a repetitive stress injury born out of repeating the same physical motion over and over, though it can also be the result of hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. Fortunately, carpal tunnel syndrome is treatable.
SYMPTOMS & DIAGNOSIS
The numbness and tingling will occur in every finger except for the pinky finger, as the pinky is controlled by a different nerve. A doctor should be able to diagnose you via a physical examination.
