Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


Also called entrapment neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) occurs when the median nerve becomes irritated and compressed as it passes through the narrow tunnel of the wrist bones. Most often the result of excessive muscle repetition such as typing or carpentry, this disorder reveals itself through finger Pain, tingling, numbness, and eventually loss of finger function.

CTS has been linked to a Vitamin Deficiency in Pyridoxine (vitamin B6). It is also most common in women due to Menopause, oral contraceptives, and Pregnancy. Not surprisingly, these activities are also related to a Pyridoxine deficiency.
