Thin Wrists Hands Male Symptom Tunnel Syndrome
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can tendonitis cause carpal tunnel syndrome? I had tendonitis in my wrist. The symptoms i had have gone away, but now I have tingling in my wrist and hands and sometimes shooting pain when i bend my wrist. Could the tendonitis have caused carpal tunnel sy
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. See a board certified orthopaedic hand surgeon for evaluation and oral/injectable steroids, splints, therapy and/or surgery. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

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 moreSee 3 more doctor answers

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

I get numb along the side of my hand from the pinky to the wrist...it can extend to the ring/middle finger...Is this Carpal tunnel syndrome?
I'm assuming: You're talking about the hand gripper that you find sporting good stores. I don't think this single thing leads to carpal tunnel I do think that if you have carpet tunnel mouth case and you do too much of anything that's repetitive you can make the carpal thompson feel worse of times in addition carpal tunnels often progressive problem so sometimes it's just seems that the activity makes it worse but it just gets worse anyway if you don't have carpal tall symptom symptoms now that i wouldn't worry about using a hand gripper. ...Read more
I just was diagnosed with cubital tunnel syndrome in my dominant arm. My hand strength was 40 lbs. How concerned should I be?
No major issue: Cubital tunnel merely means the ulnar nerve is being trapped at the elbow, and there are both conservative and surgical approaches that work well. So, this is readily reversible. Your hypothyroidism may/may not have made you a bit susceptible. In your case, at your age, with good medical care, would anticipate virtually complete reversal of symptoms. ...Read more
Location: Carpal tunnel syndrome will have tingling in the hand in the palm surface of the thumb, index, middle and 1/2 of the ring finger. It is usually not associated with pain above the elbow, but it can. Neck pain and weakness are usually signs of a pinched nerve in the neck and not carpal tunnel syndrome. A good pm&r doc or orthopedic surgeon can tell the difference easily with an examination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
There are a few:: 1: wrist brace to keep the wrist from being flexed/extended. Initially used at night time. 2: steroid shots might be helpful, if the brace doesn't fully control symptoms, or in pregnancy, if severe. 3: when nothing helps ; the symptoms are severe enough to interfere in daily activities, then surgery is necessary to release the trapped nerve. See your orthopod for it. Good luck. ...Read more
Dr., i had diagnosed carpal tunnel syndrome at my left hand, what is the worst can be with this? If i only use splint.
When my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome act up should I have the affected hand rest completely or should I try to do some exercises with that hand?
Some advice: We usually find that repetitive flexion and extension activities at the wrist promote carpal tunnel syndrome, and one approach to help, involves usage of a wrist extension brace, which keeps the wrist in a constant position. Exercise really is of little benefit if you have advanced carpal tunnel and injection or surgical decompression is highly successful. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
