Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a medical condition which science is still researching and learning about. Its main symptoms are pain and numbness in your wrist or fingers. This kind of numbness or pain mainly affects your thumb, index finger, long and radial half of the ring finger. Eventually, you will find a terrible pain running through your wrist and your grip will be very weak.
CTS usually occurs at night when you’re in a fixed sleeping position and don’t realise that it is effecting you until you awake up.
Why does it Happen?
The core reason for this pain or numbness effecting your hands is because of the median nerve is compressed which further leads to compression of your carpal tunnel in your wrist. The median nerve is a major nerve that runs through your arm and connects with your carpal tunnel. So the deeper question is why does this compression happen?
