Carpal Tunnel is a pain sensation patients feel when there is a pinched nerve in the wrist. The pain associated with Carpal Tunnel can range from tingling to numbness in the hands and fingers. The side effects are usually gradual and progress over time. 

Common Symptoms

Tingling or numbness

Most of the times this pain sensation is felt in the hand and fingers except for the pinky finger. The pain stimulus can also be felt running the length of the arm in some instances. 

Weakness

The weakness that can be caused by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is due to the numbness patients often experience in their hands.
