Are thin wrists, and long thin hands on a male a symptom of carpal tunnel syndrome or something else?
Not carpal tunnel: First off the description is of physical characteristics which is something distinct from symptoms. Symptoms of carpal tunnel would typically be related to entrapment of the median nerve i.E numbness, tingling and weakness of the hand. I'm not aware that this occurs to any greater degree in someone with long fingers though a thin wrist might certainly predispose to compression of the nerve. ...Read more
I have bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and every morning when I wake up and stretch my wrists and hands basically crackle. Is this from the CTS?
Hard to say?: Think of it this way, whatever it is that is causing the 'crackle' may be the same thing causing the carpal tunnel. If clinically relevant, I do screen CTS patients for gout and rheumatoid arthritis but again, only if they tell me something in the history that makes me believe this is a possibility or likewise I see something on exam to suggest these. ...Read more

Numbness/tingling: Carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) causes numbness, tingling and sometimes pain in the thumb, index, long and the radial half of the ring finger. As the median nerve compression persists, the muscles in the thumb can atrophy and the tips of the fingers can lose sensation.

Carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms in my hand. Intense tingling or pain and loss of grip strength. Do I risk further or permanent damage if ignored?
Yes: Carpal tunnel syndrome represents compression of the median nerve at the wrist. With continued nerve compression, the changes can become permanent, even if surgery is undertaken at a later date. An electrodiagnostic study (emg/ncs study) can be helpful in determining whether surgery is the right answer for you. There is a risk of permanent and irreversible nerve damage with severe carpal tunnel. ...Read more
