Do you feel pain in your wrist or numbness in your fingers? Here’s what you need to know

Do you experience pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in your hand? Then you may be experiencing carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, CTS is caused by a strained nerve in the wrist. Typically, the tissues around the median nerve of the hand swell and press on the nerve causing pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness. If left untreated, symptoms can persist and worsen over several weeks, and even years. The insulation on the nerves can even wear away causing permanent damage.
It is important you treat CTS at the first sign of symptoms to avoid further discomfort and irreversible damage. While your doctor will surely recommend you wear a splint and may even want to give you corticosteroid injections, there are a number of home remedies you can try to further alleviate pain and discomfort.
