Median nerve compres: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition where the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed. This is due to an increase in pressure below the transverse carpal ligament in the wrist. With the increase in pressure in this compartment, the median nerve suffers. People can develop numbness and tingling affecting the thumb, index, middle and part of ring finger.
