Carpal tunnel : syndrome, is a condition where the nerves in the arm/wrist area are crowded and compressed. The bones in arm/wrist area, radius and ulna, form a channel for the nerves and blood vessels. Inflammation or edema can cause enough pressure to impede the function of the nerves. Medications, braces, and surgery are options. See you doctor to get an exam and treatment plan.
