It's is. Hard to : Say that one should look for any one thing. There are any reasons one may have swelling from carpal tunnel to vascular reasons to diet or endocrine and hormone reasons. I'd start with a good general physical from a primary care provider and go from there. Further clarification of exam and complaints can possibly then occur
