Can Carpel Tunnel Cause Fingers To Swell With Pain
Not Usually swelling: Carpal tunnel syndrome can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in your fingers and palm, but it does not typically cause them to swell. This swelling may be a result of inflammation or circulatory issues in the fingers themselves, whereas carpal tunnel is caused by inflammation of the median nerve that runs through your wrist. If your fingers continue to swell, see your primary care physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Use computer 1 hr/ day.R palm n fingers tingling n numb. Is it possible for me to have carpel tunnel syndrome? Is computer use the only cause?
No : Carpal tunnel is when the median nerve gets pinched at the level of the wrist. The median nerve gives sensation to the thumb, index, middle, and half of the ring finger and these are the digits that develop the pain/numbness/tingling seen with class carpal tunnel. The small finger tends to be without symptoms with carpal tunnel -. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can carpal tunnel cause excuriating night time pain and cause fingers to become stiff. Pain wrist bone to outer side of hand and on top of hand.
I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel. The thumb and first two fingers on my right hand are going numb during the night. When i wake up and the blood starts flowing back I have excruciating pain. Can't this cause damage to my hand?
Yes. : Yes. Carpal tunnel syndrome is structural. A normal tunnel that tendons and nerves pass through to the hand is tighter or looser in individuals based on genetics--just like loose or tight joints. Those of us with tight tunnels gradually develop carpal tunnel syndrome. The end result is permanent nerve damage (weakness, atrophy, numbness). It's nothing you are doing that is causing this. You are just starting to notice that you have the disease. It is a very slowly progressive disease and you might be able to manage the symptoms with wrist splints at night for years. When you start getting numb in spite of the splints or when the numbness lingers for more than 5-10 minutes, then it's time to have surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: Carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger are two conditions that are often seen in association with one another.

While surgery can cause inflammation and increase the possibility of developing trigger finger, the underlying condition was probably present at the outset. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
