What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the term given to a collection of symptoms which are centred around the median nerve in the wrist becoming compressed. The median nerve is responsible for the movement and sensation of the fingers, and once compressed this can become extremely painful. The Carpal Tunnel consists of small bones with a band of fibrous tissue at one end which acts as a pulley to move the fingers.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – the symptoms
The symptoms of this condition may include:
- Pain in the middle fingers, index finger, thumb and wrist
- Pins and needles in the middle fingers, index finger and thumb
- Aching in the middle fingers, index finger, thumb and fore arm
- Numbness in the middle fingers, index finger and thumb
- Symptoms can be worse at night and on waking in the morning
- Activities which require fine motor movements like writing and sewing can become difficult
What causes Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
As the median nerve is very susceptible to pressure, it is unclear what causes the condition to develop initially. Some of the possible causes include:
- Arthritis of the wrist, particularly from rheumatoid arthritis, if there’s swelling of the wrist joint or the tendons that run through the carpal tunnel
- Fluid retention – this can affect women during pregnancy or can be related to periods
- An under-active thyroid gland
- A fracture of the wrist leading to narrowing or distortion of the carpal tunnel
- Working with vibrating machinery or heavy tools; prolonged use of the wrist
