Health Tip: Tingling in Your Fingers?

(HealthDay News) -- Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when a nerve is compressed in the wrist.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons mentions these symptoms:

  • Pain, numbness, tingling and burning that most often affects the ring, middle and index fingers.
  • A radiating sensation that extends to the ring, middle and index fingers.
  • A tingling or painful sensation that extends up the forearm and to the shoulder.
  • Feelings of weakness and "clumsiness" in the hand, making it difficult to button clothing or hold on to objects.
