Carpal what?

How has Your week Been?? 
I went to Jerry's Last Monday, and I was talking to him about This Bad hand/wrist pain and how it has been Hurting a lot and He was touching it (as I was crying!!) and Seems I have carpal Tunnel in both arms/hands.  
what the what is Carpal Tunnel?
what is it?
Carpal tunnel syndrome typically starts gradually with a vague aching in your wrist that can extend to your hand or forearm.
What are the Symptoms
Tingling or numbness in your fingers or hand, especially your thumb and index, middle or ring fingers, but not your little finger. This sensation often occurs while holding a steering wheel, phone or newspaper or upon awakening. Many people "shake out" their hands to try to relieve their symptoms. As the disorder progresses, the numb feeling may become constant.
Pain radiating or extending from your wrist up your arm to your shoulder or down into your palm or fingers, especially after forceful or repetitive use. This usually occurs on the palm side of your forearm.
A sense of weakness in your hands and a tendency to drop objects.
Why do You causes it? 
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs as a result of compression of the median nerve. The median nerve runs from your forearm through a passageway in your wrist (carpal tunnel) to your hand. It provides sensation to the palm side of your thumb and fingers, with the exception of your little finger. It also provides nerve signals to move the muscles around the base of your thumb (motor function).
In general, anything that crowds, irritates or compresses the median nerve in the carpal tunnel space can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome. For example, a wrist fracture can narrow the carpal tunnel and irritate the nerve, as can the swelling and inflammation resulting from rheumatoid arthritis.
