Q & A

Carpal tunnel syndrome: Symptoms, causes and diagnosis

Mr Michael Elvey, Consultant Orthopaedic Hand and Wrist Surgeon, says carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition affecting the hand. It affects the median nerve, which is one of the primary nerves in the hand that supplies sensation as well as motor control.

Wrist fractures, low thyroid, wrist traumas, and pregnancy are all potential causes. Pain, numbness, and pins and needles are common symptoms that develop gradually.
