Fort Lauderdale Carpal Tunnel from Working
Carpal tunnel is a serious medical condition that happens when there is a compression of the median nerve as it goes through the wrist at the carpel tunnel. The symptoms of carpel tunnel include: prickly-feeling, lack of sensation, and no strength or pain in the fingers or hand. Symptoms most often are felt in all of the fingers on the hand, except for the little finger. If you suffer from symptoms in every finger but your small one, this indicates you could have carpal tunnel syndrome.
