Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Symptoms

Product Description

Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Matti Palo discusses the common pain symptoms that carpal tunnel patients experience.

  • Kellie

    I had some knowledge about the symptoms associated with carpal tunnel syndrome but it was very interesting to hear it explained so simply by a doctor. I was not aware that the pain could be felt as high up as the upper arm — I learned something new from this video!

      Kellie that was new to me too. I didn’t realize the pain could extend that far down nor did I know that the nerve extended from the neck all the way down. Learning new things every day. It is interesting to me how daily activities can impact our bodies in such a significant and sometimes negative way if we are not careful. Knowing how our bodies are wired, for a lack of a better term, can help us to take better care of them.

    After listing to what Dr. Palo discussed and hearing all of the potential carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms, I think that I may have self diagnosed my pain! I had never considered that at such a young age I would be experiencing something that I had only ever connected to elderly people but it seems that even though much of the pain is in my upper arm, I must have carpal tunnel! Has anyone else experienced carpal tunnel syndrome at an age as young as 20?

    • Diamond Grant

      Rebecca I thought I was suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome because I do have regular pain and discomfort in the wrist and hand region, but my doctor never formally diagnosed me. As someone else pointed out to me it could be that I am feeling what is a precursor to the condition and I am only 22. So you are not alone. Take some time to analyze what you do regularly that could be causing the pain and then make some adjustments as needed. And of course see your doctor.
