Carpal Tunnel hurts in your wrists, the part when your hand is palm up. They have pads for use with your typewriter or mother board that really help. If you think you have Carpal Tunnel syndrome, then see your doctor. Keep typing. We love your questions!!!
Carpal tunnel is located in the lower hand upper wrist. It pinches the nerves in the hand. I personally din not have pain. It is tingling or going numb in the fingers. This makes it difficult to hold things, write, even sleep.
varies from person to person.
If you are experiencing any of the following, you should ask a doctor about it:
shooting pain from elbow to wrist
tingling sensation in hands or fingers
cramping in the hand
inability to make a fist
Any tingly or numb feeling anywhere from the finger tips to the elbow.
Chances are that if you spend a lot of time on the computer or other equipment with similar wrist and forarm usage and you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you probably have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Here's an interesting note I found. Patients with Carpal Tunnel often have a Vitamin B deficiency. Try to up your intake of Vitamins B6 and B12. And obviously, if at all possible, improve the ergonomics of your working environment. Just google "prevent carpal tunnel" and you will find many suggestions.
Go see a competent massage therapist. I am one, and I have cured about 90% of what others including doctors thought was carpal tunnel syndrome. Most of the time it is trigger points in the forearm and even in the rotator cuff that radiate pain down and/or put pressure on joints and nerve. Regardless, a good trigger point massage will almost always cure it.
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. Some carpal tunnel sufferers say their fingers feel useless and swollen, even though little or no swelling is apparent. The symptoms often first appear in one or both hands during the night, since many people sleep with flexed wrists. A person with carpal tunnel syndrome may wake up feeling the need to "shake out" the hand or wrist. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day. Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks. In chronic and/or untreated cases, the muscles at the base of the thumb may waste away. Some people are unable to tell between hot and cold by touch.
