What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a medical condition that arises when one nerve in the patient’s hand is pressed at the wrist. The name of the nerve is Median Nerve. Carpal Tunnel is a narrow passage in the wrist surrounded by bones and ligaments, through which the median nerve passes and reaches the palm.

What are the symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

  • Pain in palm/forearm
  • An electric shock-like sensation in the hand
  • Numbness/Tingling in palm
  • Weakness in hand

Who can get Carpal Tunnel syndrome?

Certain medical conditions can predispose a patient to get Carpal Tunnel Syndrome –

  • Thyroid disorder
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Pregnancy.

Working with vibrating tools and prolonged use of a computer mouse or cell phone can also cause these symptoms.

How is Carpal Tunnel syndrome diagnosed?

The patient's history and neurological examination help the clinician to make an initial diagnosis and to rule out other disorders presenting similarly.

A nerve conduction study is a neurological test that can exactly demonstrate if median nerve signals are getting slow when traveling across the wrist.
