What's Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
At Mercury Legal Online we’re experienced in helping people like you make successful claims for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This form of repetitive strain injury affects many people, especially office workers where they can be affected by prolonged periods of typing at a keyboard or from sitting in awkward positions. Carpal tunnel syndrome, often abbreviated to CTS, refers to a complaint caused when the median nerve becomes trapped in the wrist area. CTS sufferers often complain of severe numbness and tingling in the hands and fingers, pain and reduced grip. Typically the numbness and tingling can affect sleep and those troubled with this condition will complain of being woken up with an uncomfortable sensation in one or both of their hands. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome you’ll experience:
- Sensations such as numbness
- Burning and swelling of the thumb
- Tingling affecting the thumb, index finger, inside fourth finger and same area on the hand
- In severe carpal tunnel cases the whole hand and arm up to the shoulder and neck can experience pain
