Wrist Hand
What symptoms accompany carpel tunnel in the wrist/hand?

I started having pain in the fingertips at first, but now it affects my wrist, hand, and sometimes radiates to the elbow.

Classic carpel tunnel syndrome symptoms are pain, tingling and numbness. This affects your thumb, index, middle and sometimes ring finger – but not your pinkie. The pain can radiate to your shoulder, usually on the palm side of your hand/arm.

If, however, you have having problems with your pinkie finger, the brachial nerve may be involved too.

You should see a doctor. There are also forms of neuropathy that can cause pain in the extremities, that have nothing to do with carpel tunnel syndrome.
