It's just an ordinary day at the office & your sitting typing away on your computer, trying to ignore the tingling or numbness you've been experiencing for months in your hand & wrist. Then all of a sudden, a sharp pain shoots through the wrist & up to your arm. You think to yourself, oh it's just another pain & it will go away. Well, what if it's not just another pain? This could be a sign of Carpal tunnel syndrome which is a painful condition caused by pressure of the median nerve in the wrist. The median nerve is located on the palm side of the hand, which is called the carpal tunnel & allows sensation to the thumb & the rest of the fingers.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be linked to many contributing factors such as, inflammation, poor circulation, diabetes, obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, fractures, trauma to the wrist, hypothyroidism, or overactivity of the pituitary gland. Lifestyle factors & certain jobs can also play a role in developing carpal tunnel syndrome, such as high BMI (body mass index), smoking, jobs that involve repetitive wrist movement such as keyboarding or long-term use of vibrating hand tools in construction work, sewing, cleaning, meat & poultry or fish packing.
