This wrist pain and hand numbness is killing me… Can`t sleep through the night!
How many women have spent countless nights with interrupted sleeps, forced to sit upright with distressing wrist pain shooting up the arm with a sense of pins and needles in the hand and having to `shake out` their hands in a futile attempt to relieve the anguish!
With others feeling frustrated of objects frequently dropping off their `suddenly sleeping` hands! That`s indeed not the ideal quality of life any woman deserves.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the compression of one of the main nerves of the upper limb; the median nerve, as it passes through your wrist and into the hand. The median nerve is located on the inner side of your wrist (an area known as; the carpal tunnel).
This nerve provides sensation to your thumb, index finger, long finger, and part of the ring finger. Carpal tunnel syndrome may occur in any, or both of your hands.
