Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the median nerve at the wrist.
Ulnar nerve entrapment occurs when the ulnar nerve in the arm becomes compressed or irritated.
Injury to a nerve can stop signals to and from the brain, preventing the muscles of the arm and hand from working properly, and causing loss of feeling in the area supplied by the injured nerve.
Although carpal tunnel syndrome is common, it is not the only cause of numbness, tingling, and pain in the forearm and hand.
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a pain condition that is constant over a long period of time that is believed to be the result of dysfunction in the central or peripheral nervous systems.
Nerves are fragile and can be damaged by pressure, stretching, or cutting.
