Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a common condition that affects hands and limbs. Through the carpal tunnel, the median nerve passes and connects to the wrist and into the hand. The compression of the nerve leads to the occurrence of nerve symptoms such as pain, burning, numbness or even tingling. If one experiences a feeling of tingling, numbness or weakness in the hand, then the individual should consider consulting a doctor to check him or her for carpal tunnel syndrome. In most cases, this condition is caused by presence of high pressure on the median nerve running through the arm length and going through the carpal tunnel passage and finally ending in the hands of the affected person. The feeling and movement of the thumb and all fingers, except the pinky is controlled by the median. As a result, the carpal tunnel is narrowed from a swelling.
