Symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
If your wrists are aching or you are experiencing limited hand movement, you may wonder why. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a collection of symptoms you feel when you have pinched or compressed a nerve that lays on the underside of your wrist. This nerve passes through a small area known as the carpal tunnel. The carpal tunnel is comprised of bones and ligaments that keep this nerve protected. However, if this area is irritated or injured, the bones may move out of alignment or the ligaments may swell. Both of these place pressure on the nerve and you feel pain. Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:
- sharp, shooting pain in your wrists
- deep, achy pain in your wrists
- throbbing, swelling or inflammation in the hands and wrists
- tingling or numbing sensation in your hands
- weakness in your grip strength or forearms
- increased want to shake your hands to reduce symptoms
- decrease range of motion in your wrists and hands
The symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome typically begin gradually and increase in intensity. At first, you may experience symptoms only when you are participating in an activity such as golfing, tennis or writing on a computer. You may wake at night and feel discomfort. As the carpal tunnel continues to get irritated and compromise the nerve, the symptoms may last throughout the day and night.
