Yes: Carpal tunnel is a condition in the wrist where a nerve (the median nerve) is "pinched" by tendons that surround it as it travels through an area in the wrist called the carpal tunnel. The symptoms generally occur after the wrist has been flexed (making the carpal tunnel smaller) . Symptoms may resolve with antiinflammatory meds, rest and splinting. Sometimes surgery may be needed to fix it.
