Carpal Tunnel Syndrome [1] causes symptoms like tingling, numbness, night time wakening, pain, coldness, and sometimes weakness in parts of the hand.

Prevention

  • Avoid using a computer mouse. Instead, use a notebook tablet that allows you to write directly on the computer screen or use a graphic tablet with a pressure-sensitive pen.

Treatment

  • Wearing a wrist brace at night and during the activity causing the CTS brings some relief.
