Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Causes Hand, Wrist Pain

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME symptoms usually start gradually, with frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb and the index and middle fingers.

CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist.
