Numbness: Your symptoms could be due to carpal tunnel syndrome.

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
