When the median nerve is compressed over time, a person may experience symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. These symptoms can include pain, numbness, and weakness in the fingers and thumb. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day or have trouble grasping small objects. Carpal tunnel syndrome usually occurs only in adults, and women are three times more likely than men to develop this condition.
