In brief: Carpal Tunnel?

I assume you mean carpal tunnel syndrome.
The diagnosis is made based on history of numbness and tingling in the thumb, index, long finger, as well as 1/2 of the ring finger associated with pain. Their reproduction by phalan's test and tinnel's sign(check for images on the web).
