Carpal Tunnel syndrome is an irritation of the synovial membranes around the tendons in the carpal tunnel of your wrist and hand. The tunnel itself contains nine tendons covered by lubricating membrane called synovium. This membrane can swell up and put pressure on the median nerve, resulting in pain and a reduced ability to properly use the affected hand.
The common signs of carpal tunnel syndrome include a decreased sensation of the thumb and fingers that may also include a sensation of tingling. Pain may also be experienced when flexing or extending the wrist.
