Carpal tunnel syndrome can get worse over time
Carpal tunnel syndrome causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. It happens when one of the major nerves to the hand, the median nerve, is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.
It may be caused by repetitive hand use. Repeating the same hand and wrist motions or activities over a long time may aggravate the tendons in the wrist, causing swelling that puts pressure on the nerve. Carpal tunnel syndrome also may be caused by unpleasant hand and wrist position. Doing activities that involve extreme flexion or extension of the hand and wrist for a longer period of time can increase pressure on the nerve.
Carpal tunnel syndrome often gets worse over time, if not treated adequately.
- Early on, symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome can often be relieved with these simple measures: wear a wrist splint, avoid certain activities or do stretches and exercises.
But it may not eliminate the cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome forever. If pressure on the median nerve continues, however, it can lead to nerve damage and worsening symptoms. It may lead to severe symptoms such as pain and burning that travels up your arm, wrist pain at night that interferes with sleeping, weakness in the muscles of the hand, things may even fall out of your hands.
Women are 3x more likely to have carpal tunnel syndrome than men.
- To prevent permanent damage, start cure your carpal tunnel syndrome as soon as possible: start treatment of any underlying conditions you may have, such as diabetes or arthritis, or use the carpal tunnel syndrome healing ointments and gels, as the change of your job probably is not what you want to do at all. If you do not solve the problem in time, steroid injections into your carpal tunnel area to reduce inflammation or surgery may be necessary.
