One of the most common carpal tunnel syndrome symptoms is a sense of weakness in the wrists and hands. People find it particularly hard to grip small objects. In these cases, medical tests, such as a hand dynamometer, can reveal loss of strength. However, these tests are not routinely performed, and doctors usually rely on the subjective symptoms described by the patient. Slight deterioration in grip control is more common following surgical treatment for carpal tunnel.
