Carpal tunnel syndrome pain is a common condition that affects more than 3.5 million people in the United States every year. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) causes pain in the wrist and in the palm area of the hand. It can affect just one hand or both. Symptoms include pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and weakness in the hand and fingers. Many times, these sensations can affect the forearm and shoulder as well. This pain can be throbbing or slight, either way it influences daily activities and your quality of life. In advanced cases, the hand can become numb, lose the ability to sense heat and cold, as well as lose the ability to grip and not drop things.
