The body’s nervous system can be plagued by nerve pain. Nerve pain can be caused by previous damage or many different types of diseases, and it’s essentially a problem with the signals being sent from the nerves to the brain. The intensity of the pain greatly varies, and it is typically described as burning, stabbing, or shooting pain.
One of the most common nerve pain problems is carpal tunnel syndrome, a neuropathy of the hands. Carpal tunnel syndrome is one of the most common work-related musculoskeletal disorders, and it’s caused when irritation of the tendons causes thickening or swelling, putting pressure (or even squeezing) the median nerve. The median nerve controls the movement and feeling for most of the hand (the thumb and all fingers except the little finger). Typical symptoms of carpal tunnel include numbness in the hand, tingling, burning, loss of movement, weakness, and pain in the arm, wrist, or hand.
