Specializes in Pediatrics

Carpal Tunnel: The sensation of pins and needles especially over the last 2 fingers along with hand weakness may indicate that you have carpal tunnel syndrome, which is an inflammation of the median nerve and compression as it passes under the Carpal ligament in your wrist. Treatment includes rest, ice, stretching exercises and antiinflammatory meds. See a Dr if it worsena as they may choose to cut the ligament.
