Very Possibly: Carpel tunnel syndrome is a compression of the median nerve via the flexor retinaculum. Any continued use of the wrist may cause compression of the median nerve. Piano, violin, and drumming are all examples how a musician could potentially experience carpel tunnel.

Not necessarily: Amyloidosis is a condition in which amyloid can be abnormally deposited in the soft tissues. When amyloid is deposited in the carpal tunnel, it can cause carpal tunnel syndrome by directly compressing the median nerve.

Dr said I've got carpal tunnel, what should I know about this? What causes flair ups? Should I get a splint?
Get treated: Night time splinting in wrist neutral position, manipulation or deep heating at the wrist, injections at the carpal tunnel, all, should be tried as they can prevent the surgical approach that is sometimes needed. Read more
Rarely: Ganglion cysts and arthritis of the wrist can decrease the size of the carpal tunnel, creating or exacerbating symptoms. This is unusual. Most cases are age related, due to changes in the dimensions of the carpal tunnel and a lowered threshold for median nerve compression. Sometimes activities and overuse can affect carpal tunnel symptoms. Distal radius fractures can injure the median nerve. Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
