Were you looking for information on Carpal Tunnel Symptoms? Signs and symptoms of carpel tunnel syndrome is a common misspelling and variation of carpal tunnel symptoms.
Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome typically begin with frequent minor pain, such as burning or tingling in the hands and fingers. These symptoms may first appear in one or both hands during the night, but as the condition progresses and becomes worse, symptoms may occur during the day as well. Carpal tunnel syndrome can affect one or both hands, although one side is usually affected worse than the other. Symptoms of this condition commonly occur in the hand and fingers, although they can also travel up the arm.
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. Factors that cause signs and symptoms of carpal tunnel may include trauma or injury to the wrist that causes swelling, hypothyroidism, and rheumatoid arthritis. Symptoms of this condition commonly occur in the hand and fingers, although symptoms can also travel up the arm.
