3. Numbness in the Fingertips

Carpal tunnel syndrome may cause a loss of feeling in the fingers, sometimes increasing to complete numbness. This can impact an individual's ability to complete normal, day-to-day tasks. Surgical treatment may be necessary to restore sensation and function, especially when carpal tunnel syndrome is associated with other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes. However, rest, exercise, and home treatment can ease symptoms and may correct minor cases.
