What is carpal tunnel syndrome?

The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passage at the wrist, composed of bones and ligaments. The median nerve goes through this narrow passageway to control finger and hand motion. When the median nerve is compressed in the carpal tunnel, it brings pain, numbness, and other symptoms felt in the hand and wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome can result from repetitive hand movements, an injury, or a medical condition such as diabetes or arthritis.

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome

The early symptoms of carpal tunnel are often a burning sensation, numbness that comes and goes, or pain. These sensations can start at the thumb and fingers or be felt on the forearm. Many patients first experience symptoms during the night, when the wrist is typically at a bent angle.

As the condition progresses, the symptoms worsen and can include:

  • Fingers feel swollen but may look normal
  • Pain in hand, wrist, forearm
  • Hand and finger weakness, inability to grasp and hold objects
  • Trouble performing simple tasks such as typing or buttoning clothing
  • Pain or tingling moving upward from forearm to shoulder

Helping your body heal itself

The pressure on the median nerve is often the result of inflammation in the passageway.
