Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is rather a new syndrome which first noted in the early of 20th century. The syndrome includes numbing or tingling in the fingers, especially the thumb, index as well as the middle fingers which might be noticeable at night. The numbness and tingling is due to pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.  As the syndrome progress one may face difficulty in gripping and holding something, making a fist and even dropping objects. It could affect the job performance of the patient and the quality of their life. The cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is not known and it is believed to be the increase of hand usage or activity.
