Carpal tunnel syndrome is a painful condition that occurs when pressure is placed on the wrist nerve that controls feeling and movement. Patients with carpal tunnel will often experience numbness, weakness, tingling, or pain in the affected hand. Because these symptoms can be brought on by other medical problems like nerve compression in the neck or diabetes, seek medical attention for an accurate diagnosis and the proper treatment.
If you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome, talk to your primary doctor about what can be done to treat the condition, and learn more about seeking medical help for carpal tunnel in the video below.
