Sometimes activities and overuse can affect carpal tunnel symptoms. Distal radius fractures can injure the median nerve. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can thoracic outlet syndrome or any other brachial plexus issues cause scapular instability/winging?
Winged Scapula: A "winged scapula" is a result of injury to the long thoracic nerve which innervates the serratus anterior muscle. The long thoracic nerve is made up of portions of the brachial plexus, namely cervical roots 5, 6, 7, so in theory, a brachial plexus injury can cause a winged scapula but it is unlikely to be in isolation of other nerve problems. Winged scapula is not typical in thoracic outlet. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Carpal Tunnel spasm: YES Carpal tunnel implies that the blood supply to the median nerve s compromised. If it is a transient temporary thing then it will not cause "damage" however if it is a chronic long term problem then there can be permanent loss of sensation and muscle function. Since the median nerves innervates muscles as well as skin there can be spasm in the affected muscles, and referred pain can seem like ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
