Doctor insights on:
Can You Get A Form Of Carpal Tunnel Just In The Fingers
Yes: Carpal tunnel classically presents with numbness in the thumb, index, middle, and half of the ring finger (on the side closer to the thumb). Carpal tunnel is compression of the median nerve in the palm. The median nerve provides sensation to the aforementioned fingers, which is why patients generally have numbness in those fingers, due to compression of the nerve by the transverse carpal ligament.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: There has been new research demonstrating an increased risk of trigger finger after carpal tunnel surgery. The release of the thick ligament which is causing compression on the nerve does alter the biomechanics of the tendons slightly which can increase the chances of developing trigger finger.

I get numb along the side of my hand from the pinky to the wrist...it can extend to the ring/middle finger...Is this Carpal tunnel syndrome?
How bad is my carpal tunnel if when my hand goes to sleep i get an itchy spot on my palm right below my first and middle fingers & hurts in my elbow?
If weakness = bad: Carpal tunnel syndrome can display a number of different symptoms including the ones you have described. It is "bad" in a prognostic sense if the symptoms include weakness of the muscles to the fingers and thumb of the affected hand. The more and longer you have weakness of the hand the less likely surgery is able to relieve the weakness. Pain is pain if frequent and worsening you do the math ;).
Not usual at all: The color change would make me consider Raynaud's, as carpal tunnel syndrome does not cause fingers to turn blue. Have your doctor assess.
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 -.See 1 more doctor answer
Not commonly: Here is a nice video i made a few years back http://www.Youtube.Com/watch?V=lwghddhvm60&list=plcbd41f7a42e20469&index=4&feature=plpp_video any other questions please let me know.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Carpal tunnel syndrome and trigger finger are two conditions that are often seen in association with one another. Often times, patients develop trigger finger after surgical correction of carpal tunnel syndrome (and vice versa). While surgery can cause inflammation and increase the possibility of developing trigger finger, the underlying condition was probably present at the outset.See 2 more doctor answers
Depends: This is a common problem. It may improve with time.See 2 more doctor answers
Numbness CTR: Depending on the severity, carpal tunnel syndrome after skilled surgery can take up to 6 months to improve. If the night pain has improved, but the numbing and tingling has not fully resolved, you can still be part of the >90% that get better with time. You are 2/3 the way there! the blood supply improves immediately, and with it the pain. The insulation (myelin) takes time, so it can take months.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Recent research just published within the last few months does show an increased risk of developing trigger finger after carpal tunnel surgery. The biomechanics of the tendons going through the carpal tunnel are altered slightly after the surgery which can in fact increase the risk of developing trigger finger.See 1 more doctor answer
Rare: Because carpal tunnel is a nerve compression syndrome primary presenting symptoms are numbness, and paresthesias in the median nerve distribution to the thumb, index , long and half the ring fingers. While pain at the volar wrist may be present with the numbness, and weakness of the thenar muscles it is almost never the lone symptom.
After my surgery for carpal tunnel i still have pain on my arm and fingers what shall I do to ease the pain?
Of late, I have started having tremors in my fingers. I amnot sure if this is due to carpal tunnel. What should I do?
Wrist pain on one side when flexing it forward and picking things up. A few fingers are tingly too at times. Is this carpal tunnel?
Nerve conductn tests: A nerve conduction test is an excellent objective way to define the presence of carpal tunnel as findings can be subtle.I agree w/Dr. Ott that a good exam will help alleviate your initial concerns as you are young to have carpal tunnel.Typically @ this point we see tendonitis that's irritating the nerve(or causing neuritis) Try Occupational/Hand therapy,splint at nite,better ergonomics,stretching.See 1 more doctor answer
A few times a day my right fingers are colder than the left. My wrist aches too. Carpal tunnel? They both look the same. Worried it's cold.
No: Your symptoms do not suggest carpal tunnel.See 1 more doctor answer
