Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, tingling pain, and
weakness in the thumb, index and middle fingers as a result of irritation of
the median nerve being irritated at the wrist.

How is carpal tunnel syndrome
diagnosed?

          The
diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is suspected based on the symptoms and the
distribution of the hand numbness. Examination of the neck, shoulder, elbow, pulses,
and reflexes can be performed to exclude other conditions that can mimic carpal
tunnel syndrome. The wrist can be examined for swelling, warmth, tenderness,
deformity, and discoloration. Sometimes tapping the front of the wrist can
reproduce tingling of the hand, and is referred to as Tinel's sign of carpal
tunnel syndrome. Symptoms can also at times be reproduced by the examiner by
bending the wrist forward.

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by irritation of the
    median nerve at the wrist.
  • Any condition that exerts pressure on the median nerve
    can cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include numbness and
    tingling of the hand.
  • Diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is suspected based
    on symptoms, supported by physical examination signs, and confirmed by
    nerve conduction testing.
  • Treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome depends on the
    severity of symptoms and the underlying cause.

On the off chance that you needed to make an arrangement for
that it will help you hold up a shorter measure of time still on account
obviously.
