Health Tip: Warning Signs of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

(HealthDay News) -- Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the nerve that runs from the forearm to the wrist becomes squeezed or compressed.

The condition can be caused by an injury to the wrist, stress to the joint, rheumatoid arthritis, or repetitive motion of the hand and wrist.

Here are some common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, courtesy of the U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke:

  • Numbness, burning, or tingling sensations in the fingers and/or palms of the hands.
  • Having these sensations at night, with symptoms increasing in severity and frequency.
  • Fingers feeling weak or swollen, even with no visible swelling.
  • Weak grip.
  • Difficulty perceiving hot and cold.
