Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition in which the median nerve within your wrist becomes compressed. This condition causes symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness into the thumb and first two fingers.
Common causes include repetitive movement that involves flexion of the wrist which causes direct compression of the carpal tunnel in which the nerve runs through. Pregnancy can also increase the risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome as a result of overall fluid retention which can compress the median nerve.
