People often complain of numbness or an uncomfortable tingling sensation on the hands while driving two wheelers, doing household chores, while holding a knife or a broom, and even write for long duration or type on a computer keyboard.
There are many who can’t sleep at night due to hand numbness or pain. You may feel better when you press or shake your hands after dropping the object that you have been holding in your hand. This condition is called the Carpel Tunnel Syndrome that occurs when the median nerve is squeezed or compressed as it travels through the wrist.
It is mostly seen in adult women who suffer from thyroid related issues, diabetes and obesity. Women who continuously do a particular kind of job too may complain of numbness in the hands.
The numbness on hands could be treated with simple steroid injections that could be self administered by the patients themselves. Reducing obesity, controlling diabetes and proper treatment of thyroid diseases are important to relieve the numbness or tingling sensation on hands. If ignored, this disease could only be cured through surgical procedures.
