Getting to Grips with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Wrist pain, pins and needles and loss of grip could be due to carpal tunnel syndrome.
If you’re getting pain in your hands, numbness or pins and needles at night, and find you can’t grip as well as you used to, you might start to worry about arthritis. It’s the logical candidate for these kinds of symptoms, but don’t assume it’s responsible in your case – get yourself checked out by your doctor. You could be suffering from ligament strain in the arm or neck, or have pinched or inflamed nerves in the neck, and it’s important to ascertain the cause of your symptoms to ensure you receive the appropriate treatment. One of the most common causes of these symptoms is a condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
