Why: It's annoying and kind of hurts. They get tingly and very cold. It also happens when I sleep and sometimes when I sit up with my hands in my lap.
Answer: Aw dang, it's probably carpal tunnel syndrome (which I thought was a joint thing; oops):
Carpal tunnel syndrome is compression of the median nerve at the wrist, which may result in numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle atrophy in the hand and fingers. It is common in people who perform repetitive motions of the hand and wrist, such as typing. When the wrist is poorly positioned, there isn't enough space for the median nerve to travel to the hand.Source: HealthScout
The condition occurs most often in people 30 to 60 years old, and is five times more common in women than men.
The More You Know: More like crapal tunnel. My thesis is due in 12 days.
