Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is more prevalent now that more people type on computers and "Surf the Net." Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes wrist pain and may cause pains to shoot down into your fingers or up your forearm. There is frequently a numb feeling in your fingers and pain may be worse at night or when your wrists are flexed (cocked down),
Take steps to prevent injury to your wrists if you work on computers, use heavy equipment such as power drills, drive a truck, work as a meat cutter or follow any occupation that places stress on your wrists.
