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 ;). ...Read more

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
What could be cause of jolts of pain down fingers when hand gets cold. Have recently had carpal tunnel surgery.?
Nerves waking up: It could be several things, but its not unusual to have a flare up of pain after cts as sensation returns. It can also be caused by scar, post-operative inflammation, and over use. Try ice and anti-inflammatories like aleve or advil. If it persists, a short course of supervised therapy may help, including de-sensitization exercises like working your handa dn fingers in a pot of dried beans. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Also nerves getting pinched in the neck can also cause a similar picture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
