Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by compression of one of the nerves that controls sensation and movement in the hands. The carpal tunnel is a narrow passage in your wrist made up of small bones and a tough band of tissue that acts as a pulley for the tendons that bend the fingers.

Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome include:

  • Wrist pain
  • Tingling, numbness, or pain in the affected hand, particularly in the thumb, index finger, and middle finger
  • A sensation of electric shock in the thumb, index finger, and middle finger
  • Weakness of the hand
  • An aching forearm
  • Pain and other sensations traveling up the arm toward the shoulder
