If you begin to feel tingling, various pains and numbness in the palm of the hand and the first three to four fingers, particularly at night and in the morning, you have most likely been struck by the Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS).
The Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is one of the most widespread peripheral nervous diseases and generally affects women, but also men usually due to problems related to the use of hands during work activities or particular sports.
The Carpal Tunnel Syndrome originates from the crushing of the median nerve, a nerve that passes through the Carpal Tunnel, a cavity in the wrist that allows the passage of the flexor tendons of the fingers and the median nerve.
For various reasons, there may be swelling of the tissues surrounding the flexor tendons or other conditions that create swelling and cause the median nerve to become compressed.
If you think you have been struck by CTS, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible, who after a careful visit, also using tests and diagnostic tests, will be able to help you and advise you on the best treatment to remedy this problem. It is important to act promptly, as over time, the disease can become a very disabling disorder, especially if not treated since the early stages.
