Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that affects a nerve that passes through the wrist. It can be caused by irritation of the tendons through the wrist, or from other swelling that causes the nerve to be compressed.
This can cause pain and weakness into the hand as well as numbness and tingling into the index and middle fingers and thumb. The symptoms are commonly worse at night and can be impacted by sleeping position.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment.
