May not be carpal: tunnel (CT). According to the theories of John Lyftogt, MD & as seen in my practice, not all 'carpal tunnel' is due to the classic median nerve entrapment.More importantly, diagnosis by dr. that truly understands peripheral neuropathy may provide best diagnosis & treatment.Starting w/neurologist may be helpful.The whole syndrome has me suspicious as Sjogrens, fibro, & CT DON'T have same cause. ...Read more
Is there anything besides carpal tunnel that can cause an electrical feeling in your hands and forearms
See Neurologist: Yes, carpal tunnel is specific to median nerve compression. If the ulnar nerve is compressed at the wrist(guyon tunnel) or at the elbow(cubital tunnel) then patients can have symptoms related to that. Other causes could be related to nerves being pinched in the neck area and these are called radiculopathies. In some patients diabetes or thyroid disease can cause symptoms.

No: true carpal tunnel only effects the muscles of the thenar eminence in the palm. More proximal weakness can be median nerve related but would be a more proximal level of compression such as brachial plexus, nerve roots at cervical spine, or pronator syndrome. Parasthesias or pain can radiate up the arm from carpal tunnel. Seek care for evaluation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
