Have you ever experienced pain and numbness in your wrist and hands? If so, you may have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a progressive condition, caused by a pinched median nerve around the wrist area, which starts with mild symptoms, including a slight tingling or numbness. Over the course of time, some individuals begin to experience sharp, shooting pains. Unfortunately, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome doesn't go away on its own and most people either learn to live with it or they have surgery to correct the issue.
Carpal Tunnel can develop because some people have smaller carpal tunnels than others. This makes the compression of the media nerve for likely. In others, CTS can develop because of an injury to the wrist that causes swelling, over-activity of the pituitary gland, hypothyroidism, diabetes, inflammatory arthritis, mechanical problems in the wrist joint, poor work ergonomics, repeated use of vibrating hand tools, and fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause.
