Carpal : Carpal tunnel is only one of many wrist maladies my patients come to talk to me about when their hands hurt. Classically, however, carpal tunnel doesn't exactly present the way you've described.

I would advise evaluation by either your primary physician or a rheumatologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
