Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that involves numerous symptoms that affects the hands and wrist. This condition is caused when the median nerve is found within the carpal tunnel of the wrist, all the way through the tendons in the hand becomes compressed. There are some of the common factors that can cause carpal tunnel syndrome to develop, some of them are caused either trauma from an accident to the hand or wrist and/or overuse from repetitive activities, like constantly typing on a keyboard. With the added pressure begins to irritate and compress the median nerve, it can lead to impairing symptoms of pain among other symptoms. The most common symptoms include pain, numbness, a tingling sensation, and weakness on the hands, wrists, and forearms. The pain and numbness in these affected areas are usually intense and the discomfort can affect an individual’s everyday life. For some individuals, gripping objects may become difficult as the disease progresses over time due to muscle strength loss. The way carpal tunnel syndrome feels is the tingling sensation that radiates through the hands, wrists, and forearms is often describes as the feeling of “pins and needles.”
