Common symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome are numbness and tingling in the hand, especially at night. Pain or numbness can occur with prolonged gripping such as holding a steering wheel, or clumsiness in handling objects, such as a coffee cup. These symptoms are caused by pressure on the median nerve as it enters the hand through a tunnel on the palmar side of the wrist.

Mild symptoms may be treated with a splint to rest the wrist. A steroid injections into the carpal canal can be very helpful for reducing symptoms in more severe cases. Symptoms not responding to conservative treatment may require surgery.
