Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes pain in the hand and numbness of the fingers, and is usually worse on arising in the morning. It results from pressure on the median nerve as it passes through the wrist.

Swelling of the tissues in this area from injury or arthritis puts pressure on the nerve. The pressure can be relieved surgically by cutting part of the main ligament; however, there are some natural things that you can try before opting for surgery.
